The Community Oversight Committee is a community-based group formed to oversee the Portland Housing Bureau’s work in North and Northeast Portland to increase housing opportunity and address displacement. (Click here for a list of committee members). The committee meets quarterly to hear progress updates on the N/NE initiative. These meetings are open to the public.

This month, the committee will hear and discuss updates on the following items:

  • The Preference Policy — a new policy being finalized that is designed to give preference to historically marginalized families in North and Northeast Portland for new rental housing and homeownership programs.
  • Grant Warehouse — affordable rental housing being developed on NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd (between Cook and Ivy streets). Click here to learn more.
  • Homeownership Programs planned for the N/NE Portland community.

The last 30 minutes of the meeting are reserved for public comment and questions on any of this month’s agenda items. If you have questions or comments about any issues that are not on this month’s agenda, we encourage you to contact us directly by phone at 503-823-1190 or by email at NNEstrategy@portlandoregon.gov. Comment cards will also be available at the meeting.
