Plans & Projects

The City owns, operates, and plans for infrastructure like streets, sidewalks, bike facilities, bridges, parking, parks, and water and sewer pipes to meet community needs today and in the future. Other services go beyond the basics to provide amenities that increase quality of life, including recreation, libraries and educational programs, housing and social services, public spaces, streetscaping, and public art. The City of Salem accomplishes these tasks by developing plans and implementing projects. You can find information about the City of Salem’s current plans and projects from the links below.

Residents Help Shape Preferred Plan for Battle Creek Park

Community input has resulted in a preferred plan that balances recreational use with needed flood mitigation and includes flood storage areas, enhanced wetlands, an improved trail system, and new recreational features for the community. You are welcome to review and comment on the plan as we move toward adoption of a final master plan by City Council in late February or early March 2020.
