This report is spot on. It's been almost 30 years since Measure 5 passed. It is time to address this issue.

That's the drum Homer Williams is beating: he asserts low-income Boomers are about to exacerbate Oregon's housing crisis exponentially. (Also, what planet am I on that I didn't know this conversation was happening? I'll have to go watch the recording!)

Mike Kingsella: Coalition is key. The only way to effect needed change is to bring all affected stakeholders to the table to speak in a united voice about the urgency of the problem, and the effectiveness of the right solutions.

My mother always said people don’t really believe what they say before the BUT. So when a neighborhood assn rep starts a question “We need to take action to support equity in Portland, but...” its hard to not be skeptical of their commitment to equity.

We are here at , and we agree with : the biggest missed opportunity at the state level to address our housing crisis was the failure of to pass HB 2004 and protect people who rent their homes.

nailed her answer to Q1 at City - When the lot costs $300k, you can't build a home that sells for $200k! Land cost shared among a duplex, triplex, quad however . . . now we're talking! Pay attention !

Audience question: Isn’t the YIMBY/NIMBY construct just another attempt to divide and conquer by powerful interests?

Land is expensive, so we need to make the most of it—fit more housing units on a piece of land. They won’t all be spacious single-family homes, but more people will have an affordable place to live. -

Because home owners are a cartel who want to restrict supply to keep up housing values.

Madeline Kovacs for says the dirt alone in Portland cost more than that, so must build multiple units. High lands costs mean we we have to share costs in order bring costs down.

"The cost of the dirt under the land in central Portland is over $300k, before you even put a building on it. The best way to drive down prices is to put more homes on that $300k plot so families can split it." - , just dropping mics left & right.

The moderator asks the big question: Are attempts to reduce barriers to housing merely thinly veiled efforts to grow developer profits?

Mike Kingsella: Housing is a human need and developers must be part of the solution. We will only solve this crisis by producing more housing. In a food shortage, farmers would not be demonized as profiteers but would be supported and enabled to produce more food.

"The Residential Infill Project has been going on for FOUR YEARS NOW. Our city government's inability to take action on ending exclusionary zoning is a HUGE missed opportunity." -
