Salisbury Takes a New Look at Its Housing Continued from page 1

The homes at 12 Beach Road will be within walking distance to Salisbury Square. It will offer more green space and front porches and de-emphasize asphalt and automobiles. Conceived by Seattle, WA-based architect Ross Chapin, pocket neighborhoods have flourished on the West Coast for many years. They are new to Salisbury and to much of the East Coast. Town planning director Lisa Pierson called the Village at Salisbury Square “a great concept.” The arrival of the pocket neighborhood comes at a time when Salisbury is grappling with the complex issues of how to provide quality housing to all residents who want it. Seven years have passed since Salisbury updated its master plan on the quality, affordability and availability of its housing. The town's Master Plan Implementation Committee will begin Monday

to update the housing plan and determine what progress has been made in recent years to meeting the goals set out in 2006. The committee will hold a public meeting on the state of Salisbury housing at 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27 at the Hilton Senior Center. Despite having spent much of the past six years in a housing recession, Salisbury has seen several changes in its housing stock and more appear to be coming. More rental units are available. And revised zoning has created new opportunities for developers like that at Salisbury Square. One of the large challenges for Salisbury and most municipalities in the Commonwealth is meeting the state standard that 10 percent of the housing must be affordable to low and moderate-income owners. “Salisbury has needs for safe, decent, affordable homeownership not only among moderate income renters, but also moderate income homeowners living in homes they

can afford,” the 2006 analysis stated. Another issue the Master Plan Implementation Committee will have to address is the quality of the housing stock. While some new housing is being built, Salisbury has a large number of housing units that are aging and poorly maintained. It also has a large stock of mobile homes that are difficult for owners to maintain because they do not own the land. The report seven years ago set a goal of adding 174 low and moderate-income residences by 2010, when the last census was taken. That would require that the town add 26 low and moderateincome residences per year to reach the 10 percent state mandate under Chapter 40B. Pierson believes the town is making progress in developing more lower-income housing, including turning for-sale townhouses into rental units. But more will need to be done in coming years, she said. “We may have to go out and

attract new developers,” Pierson said. The Village at Salisbury Square has arrived at an opportune time. It creates a new housing dynamic in this city and for other towns and cities along the North Shore. Subdivisions traditionally have been planned around cars and roads, according to the developer. The homes face the street with garages on the front. In pocket neighborhoods, the fronts of the homes face one another across a green space that is both attractive and a place families can play. The garages are on the back of the home, accessed by an alley. The goal is to create more pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods. This type of development was made possible in Salisbury because the zoning was changed by the Town Meeting in 2006 for the Salisbury Square area. For more information on the 2006 plan, visit www.salisburyma. gov/PB-CC/PBHousingPlan.pdf.

which is National Service Day, 50 volunteers will be needed for each of three four-hour shifts. Food and daycare will be provided. “That is quite a gap to fill,� said Michele Gagne Wertz, a project leader. To sign up to help assemble the playground, visit http://www. winthropplayground.org/signup. The new playground is not costing the taxpayers a dime or diverting money from the school budget. The estimated project cost of $250,000, plus donated materials and supplies and many hours of volunteer time, will come entirely from private donations. “It probably would have been easier to get something passed at Town Meeting,� Deangelis said. But then the townspeople would not feel like the playground belongs to them and to their children, he said. The effort began last fall when Deangelis and others asked the question: “What's up with the playground?� Several attempts had been made in the past to upgrade the playground. But the task had always proved too much and too expensive – until now. The committee, headed by Kristen Buxton-Vigsnes and Chubb Whitten, are determined to succeed this time. They are assisted by a variety of volunteers, including Nicole Whitten, Deb Trevarrow, Susie Glessner, Katie Hertz and Kate Eliot. “It has gone really well,� said Buxton-Vigsnes. The challenge was not just to replace the aging equipment, but to resolve long-standing flooding issues. Storm water from the hill behind the school flooded both the play area and the interior of the school. About 50 percent of the total costs will go to fix the drainage issues. In designing the new playground,

the committee conducted months of research, interviewed playground vendors and surveyed faculty and staff about what the students needed in a playground. What they learned was that a playground should not be just a place to escape outside for a few minutes during and after the school day. It should be an integral part of the curricula, where students can learn about nature, develop new skills, strengthen their bodies and improve their physical and mental abilities. The committee, working with school principal, Sheila McAdams, hired a communitybuild playground company, Play By Design of Ithaca, NY, to lead the design of the playground structures and elements. To complement their work, local architect Maryann Malarkey designed natural features and created a plan to address the drainage issues with site work and plantings. The designers and architects also met with the students and listened to what they wanted in a playground. Once the designs were etched out last spring, the designers and architects presented their ideas to a standing-room-only crowd of students, parents and school personnel. “That is when a lot of buzz started about the project,� Gagne Wertz said. When finished on Sept. 15, the long linear, sloping area behind the school will feature a variety of equipment and instructional elements that are natural and manmade. In the multi-purpose playground there will be an amphitheater, a rain garden, a river bed, six raised vegetable beds for each grade to plant and tend, a human sundial, boulders to climb, a log hop, a tree house, a zip line and two slides built into the hillside. To stimulate interest in nature and science, there

This couple is representative of the consumer group whose homes will be coming on the market this fall. Another consumer group with homes coming on the market are those who have been “under water” with homes for which they owed the bank more money than they could sell their homes for. The rising prices will make it possible for some homeowners to get out from under homes that no longer meet their needs. There is another consumer group of homeowners who have been waiting several years to put their homes on the market….. not because they had to wait, but rather because they have been waiting for a time when they could get better prices for their homes. This group will be coming on the market as well. There are homeowners who have been landlords for the past several years who are as I write thinking about putting their homes on the market as well. This move by such homeowners will add to the scarcity of rentals that has already been so difficult in the market. So if all these properties are coming on the market, won’t that alter the supply and demand? Not a whole heck of a lot. Picture a sponge that has been sitting in the sun for too long. It will soak up a lot of water before it begins to drip because it has been so dry for so long. The market will “soak up” a lot of buyers before the tide turns ever so slowly (and it will.). What is just as important to “figure out” about the real estate market is to have as clear an idea as possible about what you want from it. If the walls were closing in before the ultra sound discovered the triplets, when you tuck your two year old daughter

tonight, you may just be one of those homeowners we’ll see on the market soon. For now, enjoy the end of the summer and for those of you watching and waiting,…like the song says… “See you in September.” Broker/REALTOR® Janet Hilton is a former practicing attorney and critical care RN who with her husband retired Lynn Fire Lieutenant George Hilton owns and operates Country Crossroads Realty Associates.

“What in the world is going on with the Real Estate Market? Just when I thought I had it figured out, everything changed again!” Well, I’d like a dollar for every time I’ve heard that sentiment expressed. The one constant fact about real estate is that there will be change. When there are more properties on the market than there are buyers, we work within a “buyer’s market” and buyers benefit from being in the driver’s seat. The exact opposite is true when there are more buyers than there are properties to sell. We begin seeing multiple offers on properties with sale prices increasing. Supply and demand rules the day and today the inventory of properties for sale or for rent is as historically low as are the rates. Although few dare forecast the future trends of real estate, there are globally recognized economists whose opinions matter a great deal. Two such economists are John Case and Robert Shiller whose Case-Shiller report/research sets the housing index for Standard and Poor. Such opinions and economic interpretation of data carries weight with Wall Street and it carries weight within the real estate industry. Case-Shiller predicts a 3.3% appreciation in real estate every year through 2017. We are seeing increasing sales prices consistently for the past 12 months. There are not enough homes on the market for either purchase or rental as of this writing. I recently met with a couple whose decisions in life have been right on the money as they raised their family and now find themselves on the brink of change.

Gospel or Heresy?

BY J. PETER ST. CLAIR, DMD

In an online report I recently read by Men’s Health Magazine, they listed 9 “healthy” habits that they claim are a waste of time. Three of them had to do with oral health. Let’s take a look. The first on the waste of time list was to see your dentist twice per year. I have seen this reported somewhere else in the media recently. According to Men’s Health, close to 30 studies have apparently found no conclusive evidence supporting a need to see a dentist every 6 months. They went on to say, “If your teeth and gums are healthy, once per year is enough to catch developing problems.” I absolutely agree. There are definitely people who only need to see a dentist/hygienist once per year. Most dentists use a classification system to rate a patient’s periodontal (gum) health. Type I patients are the ones that only need to see a dentist once

per year. They are healthy, they have good homecare habits and are low risk for disease. In the average dental practice, I would say this is about 10-15% of the population. Type II patients are those with gingivitis and should be seen twice per year. This group makes up about 50% of the typical dental patient population. Many of these patients could move into the Type I group if they had better homecare habits and technique. Type III & IV patients are the remaining 30-35% of the population who should be seen every 3 or 4 months and in some cases even more frequently. Because of genetics and/or bad habits, this group has active disease and is at high-risk for problems. Let’s also not forget the other 50% of the population who doesn’t even visit a dentist once per year. While I think there are people that can be healthy and see a dentist once per year, it is irresponsible to make it seem that it pertains to everyone. It should be up to you and the dentist you trust. The #7 waste of time reported was to use a hard toothbrush. According to the report, a soft one cleans your teeth just as well and is less damaging to your teeth and gums. This is old news and is true. The next one shocked me. The #8 waste of time – brush and floss twice per day. So, according to

August 1 - 7, 013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Impatience with those who don't keep up with you can cause resistance, which, in turn, can lead to more delays. Best to be helpful and supportive if you want results. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surprise announcement from a colleague could put you on the defensive. Gather your facts and respond. You'll soon find the situation shifting in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Time spent away from a project pays off with a new awareness of options you hadn't considered before. Weigh them carefully before deciding which to choose. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Consider confronting that personal conflict while there's still time to work things out. A delay can cause more problems. A longtime colleague might offer to mediate. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some emerging matters could impede the Lion's progress in completing an important project. Best advice: Deal with them now, before they can create costly delays. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your aspect continues to favor an expanding vista. This could be a good time to make a career move, and taking an out-of-town job could be a good way to do it. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Disruptive family disputes need to be settled so that everyone can move on. Avoid assuming this burden alone, though. Ask for -- no, demand -- help with this problem. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Patience is called for as you await word on an important workplace situation. A personal circumstance, however, could benefit by your taking immediate action. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Don't lose confidence in yourself. Those doubters are likely to back off if you demand they show solid proof why they think your ideas won't work. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A temporary setback might cause the usually sure-footed Goat some unsettling moments. But keep going. The path ahead gets easier as you move forward. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) There's welcome news from the workplace. There also could be good news involving a relationship that has long held a special meaning for you. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might still need to cut some lingering ties to a situation that no longer has the appeal it once held. In the meantime, you can start to explore other opportunities. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of what's right can inspire others if you remember not to push too hard to make your case. Moderation works best for you. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. mmon The Town Co
