What UNR does, and why

Portland grassroots group United Neighborhoods for Reform seeks to stem the demolition of viable, affordable housing. Our demolition/development resolution, developed through significant neighbor outreach, gathered endorsements from 43 neighborhood associations citywide. We also regularly take our message to City Hall, starting in December 2014, continuing in 2015 on Feb. 12, June 3 (UNR presenters start at 51:20), Oct. 14 (UNR at 1:07:35), and Nov. 25 (UNR at 1:05); in 2016 on Feb. 17, Nov. 9 and 16, and Dec. 7; in 2017 on May 17; and in 2018 on Feb. 1.

Map changes almost daily

With more than 20 percent of the city's neighborhood associations in support
so far, the demolition/development resolution aims to green up Portland.
Highlighted areas on the map above show the neighborhood associations that have endorsed the demolition/development resolution. Some of the neighborhoods have seen a lot of demolitions, some have not, but all want to keep the city's unique store of affordable housing and see more beneficial development.
