Have you got your tickets yet? Three weeks from tonight, don't miss *the* social event of the year for Oregon's affordable housing and community development industry - the Oregon ON Awards Gala, presented by Chase!
We are thrilled to welcome State Treasurer Ted Wheeler as our keynote speaker. We can't wait to see everyone and honor the great work of our members over the past year. Registration closes Sept. 17th!
It is exciting to see Metro making this push and investment:
"By convening all these folks together we can really activate areas that aren't already activated," said Councilor Craig Dirksen. "We can coordinate work with others that are already doing it."
Councilor Bob Stacey cautioned that the project couldn't turn into a report that just sits on a shelf. "One task that this project needs to accomplish is to provide reassurance to everyone… that we are not just going to do another study," Stacey said. "We should use this two years to advance a positive dialogue."
Thank you to Metro Councilor Sam Chase for your leadership on this initiative, and the entire Council for supporting this update and re-energizing of focus on affordable housing opportunity in the Metro region!
