Curious about Portland housing issues? How to create affordable options in our community? What does that mean for your neighborhood? Due to growing demand, limited supply, and outdated zoning codes, many Portland residents are unable to find affordable housing options that serve their needs - and for many more, this has been the case for far too long. With over a thousand people a month moving to Portland, a trend that may result in the addition of 260,000 residents by 2035, our city is at a crossroads.
We are pleased to announce that Eli Spevak, representing the new Portland for Everyone campaign will be giving a presentation at the P4E Social Hour atCommunitecture's office. Mark Lakeman will also share his vision for providing housing for everyone in Portland. Please join us for light refreshments and an informative presentation about proposed zoning changes to encourage affordable housing development.
About the speakers: Eli Spevak is the owner of local development company Orange Splot LLC, and currently serves on the Portland Planning & Sustainability Commission.Mark Lakeman is the owner of Communitecture, Inc. Architecture | Planning | Design and the founder of the City Repair Project.
