Legislative Watch: Restore Oregon Testimony re. HB 2007

Restore Oregon tirelessly advocates on behalf of our collective Oregon heritage and historical preservation. Part of our recent legislative policy action is to provide input on HB 2007, which aims to solve the affordable housing crisis impacting many communities throughout Oregon.

Though HB 2007 started out with good intentions, Restore Oregon is very concerned that the bill will do far more harm than good to both Oregon’s historic districts and to the overall livability of cities and neighborhoods. As an update on HB 2007, Human Services & Housing Committee and Joint Ways & Means Committee heard invitation-only testimonial from several community members on the bill, including our Executive Director, Peggy Moretti. Read her full testimony or listen to the entire HB 2007 meeting.

Watch Restore Oregon’s testimony below:

What’s next?

We will continue to monitor the bill’s progress and keep you up-to-date on changes and any necessary advocacy actions. In the meantime, we will only have 48 hour of notice before they announce the next hearing, so prepare your testimony and stay tuned!
