In one of her first acts, Governor Tina Kotek (D) created a Housing Production Advisory, which will be responsible for proposing an action plan to meet the annual 36,000-unit goal outlined in the executive order. Eighteen of the 25 spots will be appointed by the governor, who is seeking housing developers with expertise in permanent supportive, affordable and market-rate housing, representatives of rural and coastal communities, communities of color, local government representatives and experts in land use, fair housing, permitting, workforce development and construction. Applications should be submitted via this link by Feb. 15, 2023. Appointees must be Oregon residents and taxpayers and will begin work on the Council in early March.
