Open Source Advocacy

Is your community ripe for zoning reform?

Great work is being done in Portland and around the country to support housing types that use land, space, and energy more efficiently; are well-served by transit and neighborhood services; are designed to strengthen our local communities; and people can afford.

Below, please find resources from advocates, developers, and others we think might help accelerate this critical evolution in local planning around residential development. We’ve mixed in some articles and op-ed’s that do a great job of communicating these issues to the public. So don’t start from scratch … take, adapt, & use away!
