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; in 2018 on Feb. 1; and many, many other dates since.

Portland planners drew up local shopping list for Wall Street

Portlanders, was your place for sale?
As our once fiercely independent city got ready to RIP, Portland planners worked to ensure speculators could get the real estate deals of the century under the radical upzoning of the Residential Infill Project (that's yer RIP). Read the details and visit a scalable version of the suppressed map here.

As suspected, the most profitable places tagged for redevelopment generally are the ones where lower-income people and renters live.

More and more the truth of RIP bubbles to the fore.
