to attend, register using code "HonoredGuest". 


12-1pm session: recap of 2021 Oregon Legislative Session actions on Affordable Housing, with Representative Julie Fahey & others.


3-5pm: on the remarkable just-passed SB 458, allowing residential land parcels to be subdivided and separately owned. I think this is potentially a pathway to creating low-cost, small village-type housing clusters, and/or cooperative housing, throughout the state.

Thursday, October 7  Schedule of Sessions

Dear Tim,

The 2021 Oregon Legislative Session: Advancing Affordable Housing Through A Time of Crisis

Thursday, October 7:  12:00 pm Pacific

Grab some lunch and join a panel discussion with Legislative leaders and housing advocates who will reflect on the significant wins of this past session and the work left to tackle moving forward. Hear reflections on how these new resources and policies respond to the challenges we face brought on by the COVID pandemic and catastrophic wildfires while advancing long-term housing solutions that will chip away at ongoing systemic racial disparities we face.
