Salem ADU Ordinance Gets Positive Recommendation


The Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) ordinance in Salem continues to make forward progress as the Planning Board gives its positive recommendation. 

The City Council referred the matter to the Ordinance, License, and Legal Affairs (OLLA) sub-committee on September 12th.  OLLA will have its next meeting tomorrow, Thursday October 10th at 6:30pm, where the ordinance could be voted out of committee for final consideration by the City Council.  The City Council must vote on second passage by November 13th to meet the 90-day statutory requirement for action. 

The OLLA meeting is open to public attendance for a show of support.  ADUs provide units that can be integrated into existing single family neighborhoods to provide low priced housing alternatives that have little or no negative impact on the character of the neighborhood.
