City of #SalemOR Strategic Planning Open House on Thursday, Dec. 15th

Salem Strategic Planning Open House!

Broadway Commons – Grant Room
1300 Broadway St. NE
Salem, Oregon

Salem’s new City Manager, Steve Powers, has initiated a strategic planning process for the City to set the agenda for the years ahead.

The City has hired the consulting firm of ECONorthwest, that began work in October on the plan. Thus far they have interviewed about 50 major stakeholders (elected officials, business leaders, etc.) and have conducted a scientific telephone survey of a cross-section of the community.

This Thursday from 5 to 6:30 pm they are holding an open house for the public to hear about what they have learned thus far and to solicit more community input.

Based on the stakeholder interviews the consultants have already heard about six major areas that appear to be of most importance for our future:

  • Growth
  • Infrastructure
  • Affordable housing and homelessness
  • Mental health
  • Transit
