The aim of this report is to support North Shore efforts to build a regional approach to housing.
The report explores the housing needs of people who are caught in the squeeze between low incomes and high housing costs. The report has two goals:
- to provide information for understanding the need to expand below market rate housing;
- to illustrate that need by providing detailed documentation on the situation in Gloucester, Peabody, and Salem.
The report is not intended to propose solutions, but to provide groundwork for solutions.
