In 2018, voters across the region supported a $652.8 million bond measure to fund affordable housing. The Housing Bond Community Oversight Committee makes recommendations to Metro Council to ensure that investments meet the regional goals and desired outcomes of the housing bond.
The Metro Council has appointed a community oversight committee to provide independent and transparent oversight of the housing bond implementation. The community oversight committee will meet at least four times annually throughout the life of the affordable housing bond program. The meetings are open to the public. A period for public comment will be provided during each meeting; check the meeting agenda for details.
This is an optional drop in session focused on members discussing preliminary findings and recommendations elevated at their previous meeting that inform their annual report to Metro Council.
Members are free to drop in for any part of these two hours and share thoughts and questions there.
Public testimony will not be received at this session, though the public is welcome to attend and observe.
