Inclusionary Zoning Webinar: Affordable Housing Silver Bullet or Trojan Horse? Webinar Recorded | Tuesday, 28. March 2017
The 2016 Oregon Legislature lifted the ban on inclusionary zoning in Oregon, allowing cities to require developers to build affordable housing units in buildings with 20 units or more. Now the City of Portland is in the process of developing and adopting an inclusionary zoning policy and program. Given that over 80-90% of housing in the City of Portland over the last five years has been in multi-family buildings with over 20 units, the City has the potential to see a significant increase in affordable housing through the implementation of inclusionary zoning. What challenges and opportunities will the City ****, and what can they learn from programs across the country? Join us in a presentation and discussion with Matthew Tschabold, Equity and Policy Manager at the Portland Housing Bureau and Lorelei Juntunen, Partner and Project Director for ECONorthwest. ECONorthwest is working with both the City of Portland locally, and nationally, on inclusionary zoning issues.
