POLICY

PILLARS

WALKABLE, LIVABLE 

COMMUNITIES

By reducing regulatory barriers to dense walkable housing and mixed use developments, the market can produce the right product in the right locations to meet today’s needs, while giving long-time residents the ability to remain as neighborhoods grow. This will also bring  the effective cost of housing down to more affordable levels.

Elected leadership can help  correct Oregon’s current 

150,000  unit shortfall

APPROPRIATE

REGULATION

By aligning regulations to encourage housing production and mixed-use de velopment at all in-come ranges, housing costs will be reduced, and construction and manufacturing jobs will be cre-ated and sustained. 

Increased employment & housing affordability will support new opportunities for Oregonians

LEVERAGED PUBLIC

INVESTMENTS

By leveraging public investments in transit infra-structure with right type of developments we will generate positive fiscal and environmental outcomes. In addition, optimizing land use around existing public infrastructure investments will reduce long-term public operating and maintenance costs.

Truly sustainable communities 

can be supported at the least 

cost to the public

ALIGNING THE STATE’S LAND USE, TRANSPORTATION AND HOUSING POLICIES WILL LEAD TO A MORE ECONOMICALLY, SOCIALLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE OREGON.
