Building in Salem

Building in Salem can be as simple as reconnecting an oven or as complicated as creating a subdivision of new single-family homes.

The State and the City have established processes and rules to make sure these changes are safe for you and future owners. 

The Permit Application Center portal is your hub for viewing, applying for and working with your building permits and all related planning and development work.
