For a number of years the City of Portland and Multnomah County have experienced a heightened awareness of the increasing demand for sanitary, and affordable housing for people with specialized needs. The City Council, in February 1982, and the Multnomah County Commissioners, in April 1982, approved resolutions which established a Special Housing Needs Task Force. The Resolution requested the Task Force to provide the following: description of the various types of special needs populations and associated problems of those with "special" housing needs. A description of the resources presently available to meet these needs, and additional housing resources required. Recommendations for changes in City, County, or State codes, licenses, and other regulatory tools which affect the provision of adequate housing to meet the specialized needs of this population.
