Community Profile

Salem is the capital city of Oregon with a population estimated at 177,694 (2021). Centrally located, Salem is 47 miles south of Portland and an hour from the Cascade Mountains and the ocean beaches. Salem is in the midst of sustained, steady growth. Ongoing preservation of historic downtown buildings, along with a downtown core master plan for residential and commercial development, ensures managed growth.

Salem is a diverse community with well-established neighborhoods, a family-friendly ambiance, and a small town feel.

Our commutes are short, our air is pure, our parks are beautiful. We have abundant land for development, a ready and willing workforce, great training programs, and a city that works hard to make doing business easy.
