BBPDX Seeks Member Input on Affordable Housing Bond

We are gearing up to take our first-ever position on a ballot measure, and we want to hear from our members!  Understanding that addressing housing affordability is a complex issue, we are convening a members-only work group to determine whether BBPDX should endorse this measure. 

"The proposed $652.8 million bond measure could fund the construction, acquisition and renovation of affordable housing for approximately 7,500 to 12,000 people in the greater Portland region."
- Excerpt from Metro article,"Proposed Regional 
Affordable Housing Bond Information"



“I’m excited by the energy, vision, and commitment Business for a Better Portland has shown. At this critical time in our history, local businesses must step forward to positively influence the direction of our community. A progressive coalition like BBPDX can truly make a difference in this effort.”
