MROD Projects Get Green Light


The Salem Planning Board has given the green light to two North Shore CDC projects that were able to apply for special permits because of the Municipal and Religious Overlay District.  NSAR wrote in support of the overlay when it was considered by the City Council last year.

The two projects, previously vacant religious buildings, will create a total of 62 apartments and add much needed affordable housing. The Immaculate Conception project will offer preference to those working in the arts. The St. James project will give preference to residents 55 and over.

Next step will be coordinating and receiving funding for the project.  You can read more about the wait for funding here.
