Salem, Ore. – The City of Salem continues to alter downtown Salem parking during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow downtown customers to conduct their business quickly, to protect or community by limiting exposure and risk, and returning home to respect the State of Oregon stay-at-home order.

Beginning  Wed.,  Apr. 1, 2020 at 4 p.m., downtown Salem visitors and residents will experience the following changes:

  • Temporary closure of Chemeketa and Marion Parkades; Liberty and Pringle Parkades will remain open
  • Temporary suspension of 3-hour time limits in downtown parking district
  • Temporary suspension of fees at meters

The City will continue to enforce:

  • Disabled parking so that ADA parking is available for those who need them
  • Parking that blocks fire hydrants, inhibits traffic or the delivery of goods, or creates hazards
  • Parking permits in Residential Permit Zones as demand for on-street spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic may exceed the number of on-street spaces
  • Short-term parking spaces and loading zones used to meet business needs (15-minute, 30-minute, and loading zones)
  • All other parking regulations

Thank you for your patience as our community continues to adapt to the effects of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

During the parkade closures, visitors and permit holders can park long term on-street in 3-hour parking spaces only. Permit holders can email the Permit Application Center at king@cityofsalem.net">pacparking@cityofsalem.net to cancel their parking permit (provide name, tag number, and parking location). Parking permit holders are asked to keep their parking tag if they plan to reinstate their permit at a later date. Reinstatement of parking permits can be requested by email.

For general questions regarding parking, please email urbandev@cityofsalem.net or call 503-540-2495.Si necesita ayuda para comprender esta información, por favor llame 503-588-6178.
