There are more than 400 community-based organizations with hundreds of acres of buildable land in Portland. Many members of these communities want to help solve the housing crisis. This project, funded by a grant from Metro, will help them start the process.
The City of Portland is taking a fresh look at the rules that govern the types of housing permitted in our neighborhoods. The changes proposed by this project would allow more housing units to be built in residential neighborhoods, but only if they follow new limits on size and scale.
