The City of Salem has published a survey to solicit public input on the proposed bridge from Riverfront Park to Minto-Island Park. There are questions about cost, bridge height, bridge design, and likely use. Some of the considerations are purely practical, others are aesthetic.
Take the survey here. It's only 8 questions, has a couple of large photos of proposed designs, and looks pretty easy. Complete the survey and let the city know what you think!
