Salem Public Hearings Conclude


Yesterday, Public Hearings for the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Ordinance and the Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance were concluded during a joint meeting of the Salem City Council and Planning Board.

The vote to conclude the Public Hearings moves the ordinances to the Planning Board for their recommendation.  The Planning Board may make recommendations for changes upon review of the ordinances.  Two possible changes that were discussed during the meeting were to require special permits for ADUs in new construction and the removal of R1 zones from the ADU ordinance.  NSAR will continue to monitor the ordinances as they move through the Planning Board and City Council.

NSAR had a letter of support for the ADU Ordinance read into the record by NSAR President Cynthia Nina-Soto at the first Public Hearing.
