PP 21-0002: Boones Ferry Road Affordable Housing Initiative
In June 21, 2022, the City Council approved an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Metro to sell the Boones Ferry Road Construction Staging property (1.4 acres at the southwest corner of Boones Ferry Road and West Sunset Drive) for development of affordable housing. The Council also approved a separate IGA with Metro and the Housing Authority of Clackamas County (HACC) for the purposes of preparing a solicitation for development proposals, with the goal of issuing a solicitation in early 2023.
Additional information can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions document found in the Public Records folder.
On December 20, 2022, the City Council approved a Request for Qualifications for developers prepared by Metro. For more information about the project including the development solicitation, please refer to the Metro website: https://www.oregonmetro.gov/public-projects/affordable-homes-greater-portland/site-acquisition.
Metro completed a stakeholder engagement process with support by the City and HACC during the summer and fall of 2022 to aid in the development of the solicitation. Specifically, the engagement helped identify values and priorities for the development project focusing on the needs of current and future city residents and the surrounding community. The final stakeholder engagement report is available here: https://www.oregonmetro.gov/sites/default/files/2022/12/21/Engagement-report-new-affordable-housing-in-Lake-Grove.pdf
