Wilsonville Planning Commission to consider housing strategy
The City of Wilsonville Planning Commission is scheduled to discuss the City's nascent Equitable Housing Strategic Plan at a meeting 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 12 at City Hall.
Through the strategic plan, the City hopes to gain a better understanding of its current housing supply. And based on the results, it will then adopt strategies for providing affordable housing to a wider swath of the population. The analysis for the project is expected to take place this summer and the plan to be considered this fall.
"We want to understand if we have enough housing for people who make 100% of area median income, 50% and over 120%. We want to look at people across the spectrum from high income to low income," Wilsonville Planning Director Miranda Bateschell told the Spokesman in April.
At the meeting, City staff will provide the Planning Commission background information and address policy objectives for the plan.
