About North Shore CDC

North Shore Community Development Coalition carries forward 40 years of collective experience and successful community investment on the North Shore, having reorganized as a regional community development organization in 2011.

As the only regional community development organization serving the North Shore, North Shore CDC is positioned to bring our neighborhood development model to communities throughout our region. Focusing on low-income and distressed neighborhoods, we’ve committed to transformational, sustainable revitalization in Salem, Peabody, and Beverly.

What is creative placemaking? Who does it? Who does it benefit? When is it appropriate? Where does it occur? How can creative placemaking be used as a tool for public safety or neighborhood revitalization? What is the interplay between creative placemaking and gentrification?
