Patriotic murals on Salem’s business have sparked questions and controversies this week.

Artists claim that the city is forcibly removing a mural depicting the iconic image of a flag-raising American soldier following the Battle of Iwo Jima, and the artwork has been attacked for its content. Claims to be.

However, city officials say no removal orders or fines have been imposed.

City officials said the 4910 Turner Road SE mural on the side of Valley Roofing is at the code compliance crosshair because it is large enough to require a permit.

A review of the history of real estate by Salem’s planning department has shown that it has not been signed, applied for a mural permit, submitted or approved, city officials said.
