A public open house will be held by the City of Salem Planning Division on Thursday, September 11, 2008, at 6:30 p.m. for the purpose of seeking comments on proposed amendments to the City’s zoning code creating a new zone district, the South Waterfront Mixed-Use Zone, for the former downtown Boise Cascade property.

The proposed amendments:
Proposed South Waterfront Mixed-Use Zone

1) Create a new mixed-use zone that is consistent with the core concepts and vision of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) study published in 2006; and

A public hearing on the proposed amendments is scheduled before the Planning Commission on September 23, 2008.

We Look Forward to Seeing You There!

(Is there anyone in the city who calls City Hall the "Salem Civic Center" who isn't a city employee or contractor? Odd what happens when you move City Hall out of the heart of the city -- you have to assert that it's the "center." I suppose it could stick eventually ...)
