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.
