Listen in to our first ever Priced Out Podcast debate! Meg Hanson is a data activist and historic preservation advocate. Michael Andersen is a Senior Researcher at Sightlines Institute. We've interviewed both of these excellent folks on the show in the past (see below).
Today's edition is a grudge match debate about a City of Portland and statewide proposal to end single family housing as we know it. These two proposals are controversial. These types of homes and these types of neighborhoods have been the foundation of the American Dream for generations. Portland's Residential Infill Strategy would eliminate the single-family housing zone in the vast majority of the city, allowing for duplexes, threeplexs, and quads as the lowest available zone. House Bill 2001 would roll out a ban on single family zoning across the entire state.
Would such moves help to provide more housing and lower costs? Would outlawing single-family zones wind up displacing even more vulnerable people and bulldozing historic and popular neighborhoods?
