ASTORIA, Ore. — Astoria officials are considering rezoning portions of the city to allow for more affordable and higher-density housing.
The discussions, first reported by the Daily Astorian, come as Mayor Bruce Jones confirms Astoria is indeed facing a housing shortage, like many other cities up and down the West Coast.
“I was just reading articles in the New York Times this morning about the nationwide shortage of available housing stock, and everything that was in that article applies to Astoria,” Mayor Jones said in an interview Friday.
