Who: Everyone is welcome. Childcare will be provided
Why: Learn about affordable housing needs in the corridor and provide input to help preserve and build more places for people to live
Something big kicks off this fall: a community effort to bring more housing choices and opportunity to Southwest Portland and Tigard.
We’re calling it the SW Corridor Equitable Housing Strategy. The arrival of light rail transit along the corridor will be a game changer. A unified housing strategy will help ensure the benefits of this once-in-a-lifetime investment are available to everybody.
Our first big community event will help you learn about the corridor’s affordable housing needs and what it will take to preserve and build more affordable housing. It will be an opportunity to shape the housing strategy and listen to your neighbor’s views on housing challenges and opportunities. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about how the housing strategy is being coordinated with the light rail project and how you can provide input into the transportation planning process.
“To ensure the SW Corridor is a place of opportunity for all, we need to bring public and private partners together to achieve our common goals around housing affordability and choice.” — Mayor Ted Wheeler.
