They discuss how IZ was implemented along with statistical data about the percentages of units dedicated to Inclusionary Zoning as well as the continuing efforts to encourage (and possibly force) developers to dedicate more percentages of new developments towards Inclusionary Zoning.
IZ Efforts in Oregon
