The community is invited to a public workshop on the design of multifamily housing on Tuesday, April 30, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at the Salem Public Library, Anderson Rooms, 585 Liberty Street SE. You can review and provide input on refined ideas for updating Salem's multifamily housing regulations.
This is the second public workshop for the City's Multifamily Housing Design project. The project seeks to update the City's regulations on housing developments with three or more dwelling units.
The City received a lot of input on initial code concepts at the first public workshop and through an online survey. The survey is open through April 5, so there is still time to participate.
The community's input is helping refine the initial code concepts and develop proposed code changes. The City expects to present the proposed code changes to the Planning Commission and City Council for approval later this year.
The Multifamily Housing Design project aims to help meet Salem's housing needs by removing barriers to multifamily housing development and ensuring new development is compatible with neighborhoods.
