State Street Corridor Plan to Revitalize the Street

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

  • New land use regulations that encourage pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use development
  • New street design that is intended to create a safer, more welcoming environment for pedestrians and bicyclists

The City Council adopted the new mixed-use zones and street design on State Street in July of 2018. The new zones are Mixed Use-I and Mixed Use-II. The City is looking for funding to start making improvements to the street.

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.
