City of Portland Apartment Inspection Program a/k/a Quality Rental Housing Workgroup (QRHW)

At HFO's recent Roundtable, Andrea Matthiessen -- program coordinator for the City of Portland's Bureau of Housing and Community Development and staff to the Quality Rental Housing Work Group -- gave an update on the workgroup’s activities.

The rental housing workgroup is made up of various stakeholders in the community and has been meeting regularly to explore ways to improve and integrate the city’s various systems of inspection and enforcement. Its goal is to come up with a proposed solution for adoption by the Portland City Council this summer.

Timelines:
Mid-July: Workgroup vote on DRAFT recommendations
September 3: HCDC Public Forum
September 18: Workgroup vote on FINAL recommendations
October: Present final report to Portland City Council
