Portland has long been a national model for managing growth while preserving farms and open spaces near cities. A few months ago, we produced a map showing how Measure 37 threatens Portland’s legacy. Now, we’ve updated the map based on new data—and we’ve added a few touches to make it clearer.
In this map, each red dot represents 10 new people based on active Measure 37 claims.
In the counties on this map, more than 2,000 claims for new housing are active. Together, they set the stage for nearly 14,000 new housing units and 34,000 new residents, almost all of them are outside of Portland’s growth boundaries.
Here are the numbers, by county:
|county||active housing claims||new dwelling units||new residents|
Thanks tofor maps and analysis, and to Deric Gruen for the legwork.
