FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Let’s Talk Housing! Join the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability for an online open house featuring the Housing Production Strategy 

Join an online open house on April 3 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the City of Portland’s five-year action plan to meet a wider range of Portlanders' incomes, household types and preferences.

Portland, Ore.— The City of Portland is preparing to meet our community’s current and future housing needs with a new Housing Production Strategy

Join the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability’s (BPS) housing team as they share the draft strategy at an online open house on April 3 at 6 p.m.

City staff will share a preliminary list of actions to address housing affordability and homeownership, barriers to development, equitable access to opportunity-rich neighborhoods, climate-friendly and healthy homes, and age- and disability-friendly housing. 

Register in advance for this meeting.

After the presentation, participants will be invited to discuss the strategies with each other and ask questions of staff. This is an opportunity for the media to explore how policy and community actions can work together to increase Portland’s housing supply. 

About the Housing Production Strategy

Portland faces a wide range of housing needs — and challenges — to meet them. And the 2045 Housing Needs Analysis (HNA) recognizes that some communities face bigger challenges than others: Low-income households, communities of color, elders, people with disabilities, and people experiencing houselessness all face greater challenges to finding housing that meets their household needs. 

So, the City of Portland must accommodate a variety of Portlanders with a range of unit types, prices and locations, including for low-income populations, communities of color, and people of all ages and abilities.  

The Draft Housing Production Strategy (HPS) is a five-year action plan designed to expand housing choice, focused on more equitable and affordable housing options for a wider range of incomes, needs, and preferences.

Learn more about Portland's housing needs analysis and housing production strategy, the Discussion Draft of 2024 Housing Production Strategyand/or the Buildable Lands Inventory.
