More affordable housing options encouraged under Oregon bill

Published August 8, 2019

An article by The Associated Press quoted Robert Silverman on a new Oregon law meant to encourage local cities to construct denser, more affordable housing options. He said, “If a community is filled with only large and expensive homes, that often restricts who can move there. Couple that with the other historical barriers that have prevented minorities from homeownership, and this all works to perpetuate segregation in communities.”
