Cleaned up references to detached and attached in original text and PDF.
HB 2001 has a public hearing and work session scheduled for June 11th.
I thought it would be instructive to see counts of missing middle and SF detached units for all of the Oregon House and Senate Districts.
I constructed a PDF HERE and embedded below with that 2017 data from ACS table B25024, Units in Structure.
Notes on the PDF file:
Grey shaded member names in the PDF are members of the House Ways and Means Economic and Transportation Subcommittee.
Columns to the right shaded in red indicate missing middle percentages below the statewide average (12%) or above the statewide single family detached percentage (64%).
Counts of "Missing middle" here include attached one unit properties, duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes.
I added member names (and party) to district numbers earlier this year; if you find any errors, please let me know.
There are more than 1.1 million detached single family units in Oregon and more than 202,000 missing middle units. That's 64%/12% of the count of total units in Oregon.
I count 32 House districts and 13 Senate districts where the missing middle % of all units is lower than the statewide average.
I count 39 House districts and 17 Senate districts where the single family detached % of all units is higher than the statewide average.
Among the 8 members of the Joint Ways and Means Transportation and Economic Development subcommittee 4 members represent districts where the missing middle % of all units was lower than the statewide average and 6 are in districts where the SF detached % of all units is higher than the statewide average.
