Building on tradition
not sprawl

An initiative by

Greater Portland Council of Governments
Residential Housing Complex

Greater Portland needs 24,000 new housing units by 2030 just to meet demand. Studies have shown that creating more supply is critical for reducing the cost of housing.

The housing will have the least environmental impact if we build it near transit lines and near where people work and shop.

Developers will meet demand by building housing in the wrong places — on productive woodlands and farmland located far from where people work and shop — creating more traffic and more auto emissions that contribute to the climate crisis.
