Portland, the nearest big city to Eugene, is facing a major housing affordability crisis... we want to avoid a similar situation in Eugene. A couple updates from our neighbor to the North's attempt to address this issue:
- Bike Portland: Portland's best model for population growth without catastrophe is right in front of us. How did Portland handle is population growth 100 years ago? What worked back then?
- Oregon Live: Housing Crisis: City Club membership reverses position on single-family neighborhoods. The General Membership of Portland's city club voted to amend its report on housing affordability to include a recommendation to re-zone single family neighborhoods for increased density. (And an opinion piece on the same topic.) (And the full report from the City Club.)
