Mary Close, of the Salisbury Affordable Housing Commission, was the featured speaker at the Salisbury Rotary Club’s 9/13 weekly luncheon.  Sharing information that distinguishes the Salisbury Affordable Housing Commission, Salisbury Housing Committee, and the Salisbury Housing Trust, she explained the need for affordable housing and the Town of Salisbury’s 2018 Affordable Housing Plan that proposes a specific goal of 75 housing units over the next ten years. Noting that “affordable” is defined as costing less than 30% of the income of a household earning 80% or less of the Area Median income, she added that individual circumstances need to be considered also.
