Portland just adopted the Residential Infill Project, which will allow more density in single-dwelling zoned areas. As Portland redevelops over time, neighborhoods will be more supportive of transit, biking and walking for transportation, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. It will allow more people more equitably the option to make a home in close-in neighborhoods with access to jobs, schools, services, stores, and community gathering places. OEC is proud to have supported this historic zoning reform. Thanks to @PNWelcome @1000oregon and many others! https://bit.ly/2PIYfrg
