Rogue Advocates Opposes HB2708

  • Perpetuates the false notion that just adding more land means housing will be more affordable.
  • Distracts from what cities should be doing: increasing housing opportunities inside UGBs, close to the things families need — schools, grocery stores, jobs, etc.
  • Ignores that the 50-acre UGB expansion for affordable housing was passed as a PILOT PROJECT a few sessions ago, and the two cities that applied for the pilot project — Bend and Redmond — are in the beginning stages of their pilot projects.
  • We need to stop treating resource lands as vacant land for any other use. We need to preserve farms and forest lands for their intended uses.
