Lake Oswego Mayor Comes out for Mandate on Affordable Housing in Foothills.

Interesting Oregonian column from Lake Oswego resident Steve Duin HERE on affordable housing and loss of families in Lake Oswego. Says that Mayor Hoffman is "with me" on the need for LO family friendly policies: 
LO Mayor Jack Hoffman is with me on this. When the city or its council decides that young families are a priority, he reminds us, there are numerous ways to welcome them: tax breaks, zoning changes, reduced utility rates, a mandate for affordable housing in the Foothills. 
This is good news. 

The even better news is that the opportunity to demonstrate that support for affordable housing will be readily available in a series of Foothills related meetings occurring over the next month.
