Salem, Ore. – In an effort to better meet the unique needs of customers, the City of Salem recently unveiled a new enhanced permitting service. The‘same day plan review’ is now available and provides a fast track plan review service option for customers with minor interior alterations, with or without a change of use, which require a building permit. This service option will significantly reduce the normal plan review wait time, which can take up to 20 working days.


“Thank you for implementing this program. It is very handy for us on small service projects where owners want us to start a project right away,” said Scott Champion, Vice President, CD Redding Construction.


The ‘same day plan review’ service is available Tuesdays, between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., at the Permit Application Center at Salem City Hall, 555 Liberty Street SE, Room 320. Customers choosing to utilize the new service may reserve an appointment by contacting Dee Dee Wade at 503.540.2441, or walk-in on a first-come, first-served basis. The new process will be monitored and adjustments will be made as necessary. The City welcomes feedback.
