In fall 2012 Salem's Urban Renewal Agency initiated the North Downtown Housing Investment Strategy (Housing Strategy) to better understand the demand and opportunity for housing in the area north of the downtown core, roughly bound by Union Street, Front Street, Market Street, and High Street (North Downtown). Johnson Reid consulting was selected to complete the analysis and generate recommendations. A stakeholder advisory group made up of real estate professionals, property owners, and other interested individuals, provided feedback on the Housing Strategy findings and recommendations. Focus groups and an online survey solicited feedback on the demand for housing in North Downtown, the type of housing, and other preferences. On August 26, 2013 the Urban Renewal Agency approved of the Housing Strategy report and recommendations.
