Shannon, the way to keep residents safe from impending sea rises, higher tides and flooding is to NOT build on this site. Several years down the road when the site floods and is unlivable, where will the residents go? That is where any building should take place, not in a flood plain.

Thanks for your response. I still think building anything on or above a flood plain is tempting future disasters. And, if I understand your response correctly, only the Salem residents now living at Leefort Terrace will have certain housing. So, how do other residents get chosen if all are needy? Is it first come, first served? Is their a larger state list of needy people and the new residents are chosen from that list. So, it could be that none of the new units will be available for Salem residents. How does that help Salem with it's need for housing for current Salem residents?

Why are you building on coastal land that will flood in a few years? How will people reach their stairs that are in water - by boat? Will elevators, run by electricity, work in a flooded area? How will it be handicap accessible?
Will all the units be for low or middle income people who live in Salem? Will there be a list for applicants that include applicants from anywhere in the Commonwealth?

Right Rachel. What is happening at that site? Is there any planning going on? What can the neighborhood expect and when???
