Alliance shows support for Mass Shelters and Housing Zoning Code update

The Alliance weighed in in support of the city of Portland’s proposed Mass Shelters and Housing Zoning Code Update that seeks to remove barriers to citing affordable housing projects, mass shelters and short-term housing.
The Alliance weighed in in support of the city of Portland’s proposed Mass Shelters and Housing Zoning Code Update that seeks to remove barriers to citing affordable housing projects, mass shelters and short-term housing. A number of the proposed amendments allow short-term housing and mass shelters to locate, subject to certain limitations, in commercial and employment zones. The proposal does not include amendments that would allow mass shelters in industrial zones. The Alliance expressed the critical importance of not subjecting industrial lands to other uses given that they are needed to maintain an adequate supply and promote middle-income job growth. Read the letter.
