Our Salem: Neighborhood Hub Survey

Thank you for participating in this Our Salem survey. We have heard a lot of community support for creating neighborhood hubs in Salem. These are small-scale shops and services in residential neighborhoods.

Neighborhood hubs are a newer idea in Salem, so we need your input as we start working out the details. What kinds of businesses would you like in your neighborhood? What should they look like? Where should they be located?
