COVID-19 information center for all City service impacts.
Parking affects the livability of our community and challenges City leaders to find the right balance between costs and need. Salem strives to achieve this balance through a variety of methods including:
- A Downtown Parking District, providing thousands of free customer parking spaces
- Residential Parking Districts that keep non-residents from parking for long time periods on designated residential streets
- Permits for events and construction work
Parking Services responds to violations between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays.
