About this Event

ABOUT YIMBYtown 2020

YIMBYtown is a three-day gathering for grassroots community organizers, political leaders, educators, housing providers, and everyday people to identify problems, create solutions, and share resources and strategies. YIMBYtown offers inspiration, tools, and a network for those working to advance abundant, affordable housing and sustainable development in cities across the United States, Canada, and beyond.

Sightline Institute and local pro-housing group Portland: Neighbors Welcome are excited to host YIMBYtown 2020 this April, in the wake of some major housing wins. This summer, Oregon became the first state to legalize middle housing statewide, and Seattle passed the nation’s best ADU policy. There has been more inspiring progress on housing in the Pacific Northwest and around the country, including Oregon’s passage of anti rent-gouging protections, Austin’s plan to unlock all neighborhoods for below-market homes, and Minneapolis’ triumph making space for more neighbors by legalizing triplexes citywide.

YIMBYtown 2020: Fair and Sustainble Cities will also connect local movements with emerging national housing policy platforms, explore how smart land use can help cut carbon emissions, and highlight strategies to stabilize communities while cities grow.
