The Urban Development Department staff at the City of Salem invites you and your organization to take a survey that will help rank potential Urban Renewal projects in the Portland Road Corridor. The web links below connect to a brief online survey that will help staff understand the priorities of the community as plans are made for funding improvements in the area roughly between Lana and Hyacinth Avenues on Portland Road. The survey closes on December 11, 2015. The results will be considered together with other community input in making recommendations to the Urban Renewal Agency.

Salem’s Urban Renewal Agency launched the Portland Road Action Plan in November 2014 to evaluate and prioritize projects that maximize private investment, job creation, and economic vitality in the area. In January 2015, public outreach began to identify Corridor needs and issues and produced a series of potential projects to address them. The efforts included postcard mailings to more than 2000 stakeholders; twelve public meetings and forums; and two prior online surveys. The draft projects that are proposed for ranking in this third survey are a result of the earlier outreach efforts.
