Affordable Housing Forums Will Help Decide Next Steps

Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives is focused on affordable housing.

Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives is focused on affordable housing.

Following a contentious series of discussions about development on the empty lot at NE MLK and Alberta Street, Portland Mayor Charlie Hales called for $20 million in affordable housing money for the Interstate Urban Renewal project (which includes that empty lot).

This week kicks off a series of community forums to decide how that money should be spent. Traci Manning, the director of the Portland Housing Bureau, will be on to look ahead to the forums.

Are you planning to attend one of the forums? How do you want to see the city spend this affordable housing money?
