Municipal and religious overlay district moves to City Council


On September 5th in Salem, the Municipal and Religious Overlay District ordinance progressed through the Ordinance, Licenses, and Legal Affairs (OLLA) subcommittee to be back on the City Council’s agenda. This is the next step of forward progress for the ordinance. 

NSAR has been following this issue in support since its proposal last year.  Passage of the Overlay District will clear the way for development of much needed additional housing units now and in the future.  Development proposals already have even been held in wait until the passage of the ordinance. 

The next City Council’s meeting is September 12th, just in time before the ordinance’s deadline of September 15th.
