Housing Initiatives

Housing is an essential part of what makes Salem a strong and welcoming community and is an essential part of Salem’s wellbeing; however, the market is not supplying homes that are affordable for long-time Salem residents or local Salem workers.

What can Salem do about this? The City is eager to implement a housing agenda with a myriad of strategies that work towards preserving and increasing the city’s housing stock.

Homes for Salem

To help residents better understand the housing crisis in Salem and what can be done about it, the City and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council launched Homes for Salem, a four-part video series, that explains the importance of creating affordable housing policies in Salem.

Mayor Driscoll, Cynthia Nina-Soto, Andrew DeFranza, and Deputy Chief Dionne are among the many voices appearing in Homes for Salem.
