Madsen & Helfrich Named To Governor’s Housing Council

There will be two local members on Governor Tina Kotek’s Housing Production Advisory Council that will be charged with developing an action plan to meet her goal of 36,000 new housing starts per year in Oregon.  Mid-Columbia Housing Authority and Columbia Cascade Housing Corporation Executive Director Joel Madsen is one of the 18 gubernatorial appointees on the Council, while 52nd District State Representative Jeff Helfrich is one of four legislative appointments.  The Governor’s order established an annual housing production goal of 36,000 additional housing units at all levels of affordability across the state to address Oregon’s current housing shortage and keep pace with projected population growth.  It’s about an 80 percent increase over current construction trends.  The Council will convene for the first time on Friday and is scheduled to provide a recommended framework for their action plan by April 1.
