Gov. Tina Kotek is proposing ambitious legislation that would stimulate needed housing development in population centers around the state.
The bill allows Oregon cities one-time expansions of their Urban Growth Boundaries for housing, allocates resources to infrastructure development, and establishes a new Housing Accountability and Production Office.
This is our opportunity to course-correct after years of state policy that has disincentivized housing development and led us to our current crisis.
With Oregon’s 2024 legislative session beginning on Monday, Feb. 5, we need housing providers from all over the state to let your legislators know where we stand on the issues as they begin to debate regulations.

The Portland City Council is considering a sweeping regulatory relief package for housing developers that will mark a significant turning point in our city’s efforts to stabilize the housing market.
As housing providers, we have to be vocal supporters this important policy package and encourage our elected officials to pass it immediately.
Already one of the highest such fees in the state, city staff are asking the council to approve this increase so they can increase compliance and enforcement resources, as well as fund a new homeless shelter inspection program.
