How does the city plan to work with and for the Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) communities to ensure greater home ownership within these communities?

By expanding what housing types are allowed in residential neighborhoods, and by reducing the minimum lot size required for newer housing types, over time more housing should be available, to buy or rent, at a variety of price points in many neighborhoods. Still, new housing can be expensive. With that in mind, we are meeting with affordable housing providers, such as Habitat for Humanity and Proud Ground, to explore how we can better support their mission to provide affordable housing. And we are working closely with Beaverton’s Housing team to identify other strategies that could ensure greater home ownership within these communities.
