No matter if you are a renter or looking to own, housing in Oregon is becoming less affordable, available, and attainable. The City of Independence is no exception. Currently, there are limited housing options to meet the needs for both existing and future residents , and there is no established roadmap for understanding and determining the types of housing that are most needed, and to what degree.
Luckily, the City of Independence has been awarded funding through the State of Oregon to create a Housing Needs Analysis to begin to address this problem. The project will:
- Evaluate the city’s housing needs and
- Identify actions and solutions to address those housing needs.
