Salem Using MassHousing Grant to Implement Mixed-Use Zoning Vision
May 08, 2019

Using a $59,000 Planning for Housing Production Grant from MassHousing, Salem is implementing its "Imagine Salem" plan, a new mixed-use zoning district in the City’s Bridge Street Neck neighborhood.

Officials are conducting a citywide public engagement campaign around affordable housing need and advancing a new inclusionary zoning ordinance. The project supports Salem’s efforts to meet new housing demand, estimated by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), of 2,700 new housing units by the year 2030.
