Point Neighborhood Vision and Action Plan


The Salem Point Neighborhood Vision and Action Plan outlines a vision to improve the quality of life in the Point neighborhood and an action agenda that the City of Salem, North Shore CDC and other community partners will work together to implement over a seven-year period from 2013-2020.

This Plan is a product of a year-long grassroots, neighborhood-level visioning process where city officials and community leaders, residents, students, service providers, property owners, and others engaged in a series of conversations to consider practical approaches for building upon the assets of the Point and making it an even better place to live, work, study, and visit. The Action Plan was completed in August 2013. – Spanish version (key sections translated) here.

North Shore CDC was one of the leading partners of this effort and led the community engagement that informed the plan. The report was prepared by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council.
