Bringing affordable homes to North Macadam

April 2, 2015

Yesterday, City Council took a number of important steps to meet the housing goals for South Waterfront that were established in 2003.

By adopting an amendment to the North Macadam Urban Renewal Area, and passing a Resolution introduced by Nick, the Council committed to spending at least $47 million to build affordable homes in South Waterfront. That translates to at least 270 new affordable homes for low-income families in a desirable neighborhood.

Nick was proud to partner with housing advocates, his colleagues, the Portland Development Commission, the Portland Housing Bureau, and former City Commissioner Gretchen Kafoury to honor the City's affordable housing commitments in South Waterfront.
