If you’re interested in housing, development, construction, and affordability, you might be excited to join Portland for Everyone’s happy-hour presentation and social hour on Thursday, July 7.
Portland’s affordable housing challenges are increasingly evident, and we must act now.
Due to growing demand, limited supply, and outdated zoning codes, many Portland residents are unable to find affordable housing options that serve their needs – and for many more, this has been the case for far too long. With over a thousand people a month moving to Portland, a trend that may result in the addition of 260,000 residents by 2035, our city is at a crossroads.
David and Madeline will give an overview of upcoming land use and policy decisions that the City of Portland is tasked with making over the next eighteen months, and implications for housing supply and affordability. Currently, the discussion is focused on the Residential Infill Project, tasked with advising the City on what types, sizes, and amounts of housing options Portland will allow in its residential zones. David and Madeline will give an overview of key strategies including “Missing Middle” housing types, reducing allowed home sizes, and other issues currently being discussed in relation to infill housing. They will then share some ways to get involved in the Portland for Everyone campaign as an individual or organization.
Discussion, Q&A, & social hour: until 7:30pm
