BEAVERTON, Ore. – The draft implementation plan for the Metro Regional Affordable Housing Bond will soon be available for review. The draft plan will be presented at the May 7 City Council meeting; the document will be available at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/housing by May 3 for public review.
Join us for our next affordable housing community event to share your comments to the plan and learn about next affordable housing steps. The open house is Thursday, May 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Highland Park Middle School (7000 SW Wilson Avenue). This drop-in style event is open to all community members. Refreshments and Spanish interpretation will be provided.
In November 2018, Metro voters approved a $652.8 million bond—$31 million of which will be allocated for City of Beaverton projects. The city is creating a strategy to guide bond implementation and provide desperately needed affordable housing for our city.
In April 2019, the city hosted a community conversation to hear residents’ solutions about the future of affordable housing in Beaverton. Feedback received at the community event and from other listening sessions were incorporated into the draft implementation plan.
The city’s housing goals include strategies for housing stability for all community members, especially those who are most in need, as we continue to meet the growing demand for housing for all income levels. Community feedback is necessary to ensure bond implementation proceeds in an equitable and inclusive way.
