PDCC November General Meeting:
COMMUNITY HOUSING PANEL
Sunday, November 12th, 7:00p - 8:30p via Zoom
Agenda | Register
Come join us for a panel on Community Housing, led by Representative Grayson Lookner and Camille Gix!
Camille is a Public Policy Analyst, Housing Studies Scholar, and Research Lead for the Seattle Social Housing Citizens Initiative. Here is her comprehensive study explaining the model that the Housing Opportunities Commission is using, that Seattle is working to replicate.
Additionally, two other resources submitted by Rep. Lookner for your consideration!
First, here is a video from the Housing Opportunities Committee of Montgomery County, Maryland where this model has been implemented.
Second, an article from the New York Times on public housing.
We are excited to welcome these two as they discuss this model of community-owned housing, and how it might be realized here in Portland as a means of creating affordable and sustainable housing for Portland residents of all incomes!
In addition to this informative panel, we will also be electing a new Treasurer! Please consider stepping up and running for this important role on the team.
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you soon!
