How is the Residential Infill Project addressing services and infrastructure?

In addition to the benefits of added housing choice, providing for more people in complete neighborhoods offers more efficient delivery of services, reduces costs for related system and infrastructure upgrades as well as transportation system impacts.

Project staff coordinated with the City’s transportation, stormwater and sewer, water, fire, police, parks and housing bureaus to evaluate infrastructure and service capacity and availability as we considered increasing households in these areas. In addition, staff coordinated with TriMet (the regional transit agency) and school districts to ensure additional housing units can be supported. Staff received letters of support from Metro and TriMet in response to the project’s Discussion Draft.
