Join the City of Salem and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) for a free workshop about housing on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Community Life Center, located at 401 Bridge St. in Salem.
Workshop participants will hear about the need for housing in Salem and how housing supply impacts prices and rents. Participants will then give input on two proposed tools:
Inclusionary Zoning, a tool municipalities can use to require the creation of affordable housing; and Potential changes to how accessory dwelling units are currently regulated so that more opportunities for affordable housing can be created.
This event is free and open to all. Spanish language interpretation will be provided. Childcare will not be provided, but parents are welcome to bring their children to the workshop.
