Next Salem Housing Forum is April 23rd

4.9.19

Over 200 people attended the Salem Housing Forum on March 5th. As a follow up to that discussion, on April 23rd a Salem Housing Workshop on Inclusionary Housing and Accessory Dwelling Units will be held.  The forum will focus on discussion of the city's housing challenges + review these two potential tools to help meet housing needs.

Many young adults, working families and seniors are struggling to find adequate, affordable housing in Salem. This has an impacts the entire city and threatens the character and livability of our community. Many municipalities have local laws requiring a percentage of new affordable units as part of any new development (inclusionary housing). In addition, cities/towns are increasingly looking to utilize existing housing stock to enable in-law units to help address their housing needs (accessory dwelling units).

 These options and a look forward to continuing an important dialogue on housing needs and tools that can put in place to help address this in Salem takes place on April 23rd at the Community Life Center, 401 Bridge Street.  6pm-8pm
