There is a concern among community members about the availability of high-quality affordable housing in Wilsonville. The City’s 2018 Community Survey indicated that only 38% of residents rated the availability of affordable quality housing as excellent or good. This percentage is lower than previous surveys in 2012 and 2014, when nearly half of those surveyed believed Wilsonville had sufficient affordable housing.

In response, Wilsonville City Council directed City staff to look into programs, policies, and potential legislative changes to address these concerns and to respond to changes in the housing market. An Equitable Housing Strategic Plan Task Force has been formed to evaluate current data, consider public input, provide technical expertise, and develop policies and strategies to address the gaps in Wilsonville’s residential housing stock.

We want to hear from you! Share your opinion with us about housing strategies by taking the quick poll to the right! The poll is available in both English and Spanish.

    Quality Education for my children

    by SW39, 9 months ago

    We moved here in 2012 so I could attend online nursing school. We could have lived anywhere in Oregon, but I chose Wilsonville because of the quality of the schools. Last week my twins who were at Inza Wood, then Wilsonville High, enrolled at University of Arizona in engineering and science majors. One of them has a $38,000/year engineering scholarship. The Wilsonville schools prepared them to succeed at the highest levels of endeavor in our country.

    Why I Live in Wilsonville

    by Citizen A, 9 months ago

    I live in Wilsonville because I was able to get low income housing here. That has made all the difference. Now my social security payment stretches to cover my monthly expenses instead of just covering rent. I can’t say how grateful I am for my housing situation.

We knew how to save money, be frugal, and at 23 I was making enough as a manager to buy a condo in downtown Portland. I thought I was too young and I would buy when I was ready to settle down. We both did Dave Ramsey as young college students.

    When it came time to settle down Oregon had changed. I no longer got jobs just by applying. My husband had been in the luxury tech design business in the... Continue reading

    2 bedrooms 1 bath

    by Cberk, 9 months ago

    I love in Wilsonville because of the location to I-5, and the school district. I started at apartments on Rose Way. Two bedrooms two baths on the fourth floor.i could barely afford it but it was close to Boeckman Creek and it was available, also the lease terms where reasonable. After our first year there ,the rent increased and it was no longer affordable. My son had started kindergarten and we moved to my mom's house in Hubbard. We finally found a two bedroom one bath room second floor apartment on SW Bailey. The rent was 700 + about 150... Continue reading
