PUBLIC MEETING REGARDING SEVERELY RENT BURDENED HOUSEHOLDS (House Bill 4006)

PUBLIC MEETING REGARDING SEVERELY RENT BURDENED HOUSEHOLDS (House Bill 4006) Meeting Date, Time, and Location: Thursday, December 20, 2018; 7:00 PM Council Chamber, 380 A Avenue Lake Oswego, Oregon In early 2018 the 79th Oregon Legislature enacted House Bill 4006 (HB 4006), which requires cities to hold a meeting to discuss the causes and consequences of severe rent burdens on residents. The state is interested in learning about barriers to reducing rent burdens and possible solutions. The state defines severely rent burdened as a household paying more than 50 percent of their household income on gross rent for housing. The City of Lake Oswego is considered a severely rent burdened city because more than 25% (29%) of its renter households pay this much for housing according to the U.S. Census Bureau. By comparison, 28% of Portland residents and 20% of West Linn residents are severely rent burdened. You are invited to share your perspective on rent burdens that residents face and possible solutions. The city has invited representatives from Clackamas County Housing Authority and local non-profit housing providers to assist in the discussion.
