Cottage Cluster PrototypeRe-Legalizing Portland, the Happy Hour
Thursday, October 12, 6:00 – 7:30pm at Pizza Baron, 2604 SE 122nd Ave.
Having trouble paying your rent? Can’t afford to buy? Need better access to transit? Portland faces a housing shortage. Portlanders also wonder sometimes why more neighborhoods in the city aren’t being built to resemble the ones within a few miles of downtown that are in such high demand. Part of the reason is that it’s currently illegal to build neighborhoods like those. Newer neighborhoods won’t achieve walkability, or frequent transit, unless we change the rules around housing, too. Join us for pizza, and a talk about Portland’s brief window of opportunity to help address these issues in East Portland. Followed with a Q&A. Space is limited, so register asap!

Build Small, Live Large Summit 
Portland State University, November 3-5 
The Build Small, Live Large Summit is a gathering place for leaders and policymakers from around the country and across sectors to explore smaller homes as a local response to housing shortages and climate change. Smaller homes use less energy and materials, add to the supply of housing options in walkable, high-opportunity neighborhoods, offer flexibility as households change over time, and provide homeowners with a way to offset their mortgages with rental income. This year’s Summit is focused on homes most commonly referred to as accessory dwelling units, or ADUs. Common names for ADUs include backyard cottages, mother in law apartments, garage studios, and attic and basement apartments. Learn more & register here.
