Salem News: A nearly $1 million grant coming to the city won’t put Salem [MA] in competition with Gloucester, but a large project to open the city’s first commercial marina will be ready for business by next summer. Salem has landed a $928,000 grant from the state’s Seaport Economic Council, a recently rebuilt task force that aims to spur economic growth in coastal communities.
