Economy & Housing

The city cannot be its best without a diverse workforce and thriving businesses.  We need to provide ample affordable housing for all families to live, which leads to better communities, businesses and overall economy.  City government can assist with these issues by allowing streamlined processes and reducing tax burdens to attract small business.  Only by working together can we all progress together.


Our Plan:

  • Establish ongoing communications with the city of Portland regarding the link between a healthy housing market and the economy.

  • Promote a faster, streamlined process for developers to obtain permits.

  • Consider making the design review process advisory.

  • Consider forming two different commissions:  one for planning and development and the other for sustainability and the environment. 

  • Work to reduce barriers i.e., tax burden.

  • Promote economic development and business retention.

I would like more information!
