Do you Love Salem? If so, I hope you’ll consider attending Tuesday night’s Housing Forum. In order to maintain our nearly 400 year old history as a community that is home to young adults, families and seniors of all income levels and backgrounds we need to think about and shape our current housing policies.

Whether you are safe and secure in a house that you love or worried about the ability to live in the city where you work, where you were raised, or where you hope to grow older and bolder, we need your voice in this discussion. This won’t be the only opportunity to engage in helping shape housing policies, but it’s a good first chance to hear more about the challenges and weigh in on potential strategies.

In order to have a strong economic base that supports a wide range of jobs and encourages thriving restaurants, retailers and experiences, we need people who work in Salem to be able to live here. We also need people who live in Salem to be able to support shops and patronize businesses here.

Our community is an ecosystem and we want it to be healthy, balanced and alive! Hope to see you at Tuesday night at the Community Life Center from 7pm to 8:30pm. Please share this message with your friends and neighbors.

p.s. We will have Spanish translation services available at the Housing Forum. We won’t have child care available, but the room should be child friendly, so feel free to bring your little one.
