Zoning & Land Use

​Zoning classifications in the Salem Revised Code determine how you can use and develop property. The land use process refers to the steps you take to have your building and land development plans reviewed and approved by the City. Your land use process may be as simple as filling out an application and having it reviewed by City staff. It may also involve public notice and hearings and reviews by the Salem Planning Commission or the City Council.
