The Community Oversight Committee is a group of community representatives that was formed to hold the Portland Housing Bureau and our partners accountable to the N/NE Portland community and the goals we put forward in our housing plan earlier this year. (Click here for a list of committee members).
How it works: The Portland Housing Bureau and the partners we fund through the N/NE initiative will update the committee on our progress at quarterly meetings. The committee will report back to City Council annually and let them know how we're measuring up against our goals — from the community's perspective.
The committee begins meeting this month and will hear updates next week on:
- Grant Warehouse — affordable housing planned for NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, between Cook and Ivy.
- N/NE home repair and homeownership programs.
- The Preference Policy — how the City is moving forward with a policy to help displaced households (and their descendants) return to N/NE.
- Homeless services for African Americans.
These meetings are open to the public.
