People park downtown in available spots on Aug. 10 in Salem.

Salem City Council will conduct a first reading on a proposed code amendment to eliminate minimum off-street parking requirements citywide during the regular council meeting Monday evening.

After the first reading of the ordinance, council will vote on whether to move it forward and conduct a public hearing.

What does it do?

The proposed code amendment updates to the Unified Development Code to eliminate these parking requirements are in response to new State Climate-Friendly and Equitable Communities rules.  

The new state rules require the city to change how it regulates parking, meaning city leaders must eliminate all minimum off-street parking requirements for all uses citywide or implement an array of other parking reforms by June 30 unless an extension is approved by the state.
