Addressing the housing crisis in Salem and the Greater Boston area takes many tools—including regional partnerships and strategies. In Salem, the City is pursuing a number of ways to address the issues affecting the city and its residents including: changes to the accessory dwelling unit ordinance, inclusionary zoning, public land, special permitting and incentives, and other tools.
In addition to the housing work of Imagine Salem, the City is also engaged in number of community programs and partnerships including leveraging the Salem for All Ages Action Plan and the Point Revitalization Plan. In addition to work to develop strategies for new housing opportunities, the City continues to provide housing services and tools to residents.
