Legislative findings

The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:

(1) There is a serious shortage of decent, safe and sanitary housing available and affordable to low and moderate income households in the State of Oregon.

(2) The inadequacy in the supply of decent, safe and sanitary affordable housing endangers the public health and jeopardizes the public safety and general welfare of the state.

(3) To obtain the benefits of covenants and restrictions that seek to preserve and maintain affordable housing, the Legislative Assembly authorizes the creation and enforcement of affordable housing covenants. [2007 c.691 §1]
