Mixed Use Considered For Salisbury Square

Salisbury, Massachusetts is considering a zoning change that would improve walkability, allow for more residential units, and help expand businesses in Salisbury Square.

Town leaders are asking residents and business owners to weigh in on a plan to allow more apartments in Salisbury Square, a zoning change some believe would attract more businesses.

"The thought is if we permit apartments above first-floor retail shops and offices, businesses would be more interested in locating in the square because there would be more pedestrian activity," Klima said. "As it stands now you can have one residential unit that is part of a business in a general business zone, but that's pretty much it."
