Join Living Cully, the Cully Housing Action Team (CHAT!), and other housing advocates and head to the City Council hearing at Parkrose High School on Thursday, December 10th! The Anti-Displacement PDX (ADPDX) coalition has worked hard to include anti-displacement and affordable housing measures in the city’s new 20-year Comprehensive Plan. The group’s efforts resulted in over two dozen measures being added to the draft plan adopted by the Planning and Sustainability Commission in July. However, despite unanimously declaring a housing “state of emergency” in October, not one of the five City Council members has publicly endorsed the Comprehensive Plan measures championed by ADPDX.
We are calling on the City Council to “just say yes” to the policies that are already included in the draft plan.
City Council’s vote on the final Comprehensive Plan is not expected until early next year.
