Oregon Housing Affordability Legislation

A looming shortage

The Register Guard Editorial Board weighs in on the increasing housing affordability problems Oregon is facing, and provides updates on the current efforts from the Oregon Legislator to address the problem in this editorial. We should know what happens with these bills, which provide additional protections to renters and would life Oregon's inclusionary zoning ban, within the next few days.

The one thing almost everyone seems to agree on is that Oregon is facing a shortage of affordable housing that isn’t going to go away on its own, and that it has in fact been getting rapidly worse.
