Salem Strategic Plan

​The Salem Strategic Plan, adopted by City Council in October 2017, articulates the mission, vision, values, and goals of the City. The plan charts a course for the City moving forward based on findings from an assessment of current conditions in our community, impacts of anticipated change in the region, and perspectives of residents, community leaders, and Council. 

Through an annual City Council Policy Agenda, City Council makes its initial priorities for action clear to staff and the community, and provides direction on aligning resources towards the Strategic Plan Policy areas through the City’s budgeting process.
