"Metro's War on Single Family Housing Continues"

John Charles, of the Cascade Policy Institute, wrote an article titled, "Metro's War on Single Family Housing Continues" that can be seen on the organization's website.  

"For more than a decade, the regional government, Metro, has been quietly herding people into high-density neighborhoods.  For those unaware of this policy, the recently announced plans for 80 acres of development near the light rail station at Sunset Transit Center should be a wake-up call: The developers plan to build 2,175 new housing units, and none of them will be single-family homes.  In order to meet Metro-imposed density requirements, the project will be dominated by mid-rise apartment complexes, along with commercial and retail buildings."

And it's not just coming from Metro, and it's not just happening in Beaverton.
