The city of Portland held a hearing on policy changes recommended following a stakeholder process to identify ways to encourage middle-income housing within the city. While the Alliance supports many of the recommendations, such as providing opportunities for more duplexes, triplexes and garden apartments, we expressed concerns that some of the proposals are overly restrictive and limit development flexibility. A vote is scheduled for Dec. 7, which will be followed by the development of specific zoning code changes to implement the policy. Read the Alliance letter.
