The Oversight Committee is a community-based group formed to oversee the Portland Housing Bureau's work to address displacement in North and Northeast Portland. The committee meets every other month for progress updates and discussion on the N/NE Neighborhood Housing Strategy. These meetings are open to the public.
This month, join us to hear an update about the first Preference Policy application round, new affordable rental housing planned for N/NE Portland, and a report from Housing Bureau Director Kurt Creager on affordable housing expenditures (Tax Increment Financing or "TIF") in the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area.
The last 30 minutes of the meeting are reserved for public comment and questions on any of this month's agenda items. If you have questions or comments about any issues that are not on this month's agenda, contact us directly at 503-823-1190 or email NNEstrategy@portlandoregon.gov. Comment cards will also be available at the meeting.
Oversight Committee meetings will now be filmed by Portland Community Media and broadcast on Channel 30. The broadcast schedule will be available shortly.
The public is welcome. Meeting schedules and agendas are posted here.
