PSU Real Estate Director: Metro's Urban Growth Plans Will Harm Economy

In a study posted to the PSU Center For Real Estate's website yesterday, academic director Gerard C.S. Mildner analyzed Metro government's 2014 Urban Growth Report released in September. His damning analysis said increased density will drive up housing costs, burden the poor and cost local governments billions they do not have.
"This report deserves special attention by citizens and professionals in the local business community because it distorts economic data and will lead the region to make decisions that will harm economic growth."
A story by reporter Jim Redden appeared today on the Portland Tribune website.
