A Message From the Mayor
Welcome to the great City of Salem! A city full of rich history, great architecture, and a prominent future.
Salem City is located along the Salem River, with access to water and upgraded rail ways to support current and future industrial growth. Salem City occupies 2.8 square miles of residential, retail, commercial, and industrial community with great opportunities for private investment and city wide development.
Our City mission is to foster community pride that allows our residents to be active participants in the strategic, substantive and sustainable enhancement of resident’s quality of life, as the governing body stimulates citywide growth by demonstrating competent business savvy, transparent and trust worthy leadership and a commitment to delivering excellence in service.
Salem City is a reflection of the best Salem County and the State of New Jersey have to offer. We look forward to you getting to know Salem City and invite you to make our home your home.
