We need housing options that work for every Oregonian. YES on HB 2001!

Oregon legislators have the opportunity to keep homes for middle-income families in the state’s job centers more affordable. HB 2001 would lift current restrictions that ban all but the most expensive housing options. Re-legalizing affordable choices like triplexes, duplexes, and quads (four-home buildings) in centrally-located, convenient neighborhoods means more Oregonians can afford to live near work, transit, and schools.

The legislation proposed by House Speaker Tina Kotek would commit Oregon cities, population 10,000 and larger, to allow a range of home types in more neighborhoods to increase affordable choices for households of different ages, sizes, and incomes.

 

ACT NOW: Contact your lawmakers in support of HB 2001.

You can call or email your lawmakers and ask them to support HB 2001. Here is a sample script:

Hello, my name [YOUR NAME], and I live in [CITY]. I’m contacting you to ask that you support HB 2001. This bill will ensure that every Oregonian has housing that works for them by allowing duplexes and multi-plex housing on residential land that is currently zoned for single-family homes. This is a simple and logical fix that will help Oregon families experiencing our housing crisis. Thank you!
