We have an affordable housing problem. Our city is beautiful and as such, many people have a desire to live here. The Urban Growth Boundary continually gets challenged to be moved out to allow for growth while we fail to ensure that the city can maintain it. Public safety, roads, transit, schools, and many other factors play a vital role in our city's sustainability. We are lacking in the necessary services to accommodate our growth rate. Attracting new growth is important to sustain our city but this can not be done at the expense of our current residents. We need truly affordable housing that the majority of Newberg, the working class, can afford. High density zoning is already being approved by the council which will only detract from our city's beauty and appeal. We need to shift our focus to current residents and work with developers to create realistic affordable housing.
