“To ensure the SW Corridor is a place of opportunity for all, we need to bring public and private partners together to achieve our common goals around housing affordability and choice.” — Mayor Ted Wheeler
The cities of Portland and Tigard have released the Discussion Draft of the SW Corridor Equitable Housing Strategy and an accompanying SW Corridor Equity and Housing Needs Assessment.
The future of the SW Corridor along Barbur Boulevard is taking shape! As the region plans for a light rail line from Downtown Portland to Bridgeport Village, the cities of Portland and Tigard, along with Metro, are developing an Equitable Housing Strategy for this major transportation corridor. The strategy will help ensure that homes along the new transit line meet the needs of households of different sizes and incomes. It will also support the cities’ and regional efforts to leverage a major public transit project with housing policies and investments so all people — regardless of race, ethnicity, family status or disability — have a range of affordable choices of where to live.
Watch Mayor Wheeler's address from the October 14 SW Corridor Community Learning and Listening Session on affordable housing.
