State Street Corridor Plan to Revitalize the Street


The State Street Corridor Plan project aims to revitalize State Street from 12th to 25th Street into a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use corridor. The project will result in the following:

  • Proposed land use regulations that encourage pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use development
  • Proposed alternative street designs that are intended to create a safer, more welcoming environment for pedestrians and bicyclists

This project builds off of the work done by Northeast Neighbors (NEN) and Southeast Salem Neighborhood Association (SESNA) in the adopted NEN-SESNA Neighborhood Plan. It also advances City Council’s economic development goal and strategies.

The project kicked off in August 2015 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2017. The State Street Corridor Plan project is partially funded by a grant from the Transportation and Growth Management Program, a joint program of the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. The City has hired a consultant team to help with the project.

​Sign up for the State Street Corridor Plan email list to get updates about the project, including invitations to future meetings.
