Join us at a Community Learning and Listening Session to share your ideas on the equitable housing strategy

Community members are invited to a Community Learning and Listening Session on Affordable Housing on Saturday, October 14 to share experiences and provide input on housing challenges and opportunities to shape a new SW Corridor Equitable Housing Strategy.

The event will be an opportunity for community members to learn about affordable housing needs in the corridor and provide input to help preserve and build more places for people to live.

Residents can get involved by connecting with neighbors, learning how to volunteer with local housing organizations and sharing their comments on the transit planning process.

Featured speakers will include Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Tigard Councilor Tom Anderson. They will talk about the importance of inclusive communities with more housing and transit. Housing experts from the Community Alliance of Tenants and Community Housing Fund will talk about the challenges lower income residents in Southwest are facing and what resources are available.

Join us for a fun family-friendly event with childcare, food and entertainment. We hope to see you there!
