What type of housing would you like to see in your neighborhood?

The city is launching a Housing Options Project (HOP) to identify housing wants and needs, as well as where and how additional housing types might be allowed in the city’s residential neighborhoods.

Plan to attend an upcoming community open house to learn about potential housing options (accessory dwelling units, duplexes, row houses and more!) and share your priorities, concerns and preferences for your neighborhood. Community feedback will help guide future efforts and influence project outcomes.

In Beaverton, topics like housing availability are important. There continues to be a shift in the type and location of housing people want, and a need for a greater variety of housing types at all income levels.

A broad goal is to approach this project in a balanced way that supports revitalization efforts while ensuring that our city is welcoming, inclusive and still within reach for everyone.

Potential outcomes include a housing options strategy to help guide future efforts, updates to the city’s Development Code that will consider neighborhood preferences, and an implementation plan for next steps. Learn more at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/HOP.

Housing Options Project Community Open House: Tuesday, Feb. 5 | 5:30-7:30 PM Beaverton City Library Room B (12375 SW 5th Street, Beaverton)
