Springfield, like many Oregon cities, has a shortage of housing that is affordable across the housing continuum. Join us to learn more about the City of Springfield’s current efforts to address housing needs in the community, and to hear about additional work the City will undertake in the next few years. Recently, City staff provided Council with an update on the city’s housing efforts. That Briefing Memorandum is attached and can be downloaded here BREFING MEMORANDUM. City staff: Katie Carroll and Erin Fifeld, will provide an update to City Club.
Katie Carroll is the City’s Housing Analyst; she works on creating and administering programs to address the community’s housing needs. Before accepting this role, she worked part-time for the City on comprehensive planning projects.
Erin Fifeld has been the City’s Community Development Analyst for 8 years. She works mostly with community partners to increase affordable housing and address community needs for low-income and unhoused residents.
