Since the summer of 2007, a group of Salem’s large downtown employers have been actively pursuing Vision 2020 projects to enhance the heart of the City - downtown, north downtown, and the Edgewater/Wallace area of West Salem. From this collaboration, SalemAlive.com, a comprehensive website of Salem events, has been created.

Travel Salem provided the TravelSalem.com website as a host for SalemAlive.com. Residents and visitors can easily access additional information regarding attractions, special packages, and promotions to encourage the discovery of their community and the two-county region.

One of the Vision 2020 goals, identified in community conversations last year, was to better coordinate the marketing and advertising of City Center activities. A subcommittee was formed specifically tasked with creating a broad-reaching, single source of events information to bring Salem residents and visitors to the City Center. The subcommittee includes several local businesses including Travel Salem, Grand Hotel in Salem, Willamette University, Mission Mill Museum, , Go Downtown Salem!, Chemeketa Community College, Chamber of Commerce, Salem Health, and Elsinore Theatre.

SalemAlive.com went live on March 30 and allows residents to search for activities within the City Center, by location or interest area. SalemAlive.com also offers residents the ability to “self-submit” events that may be of interest to residents and visitors alike.
