In the humble neighborhoods of Southeast Portland, residents seem to be entangled in an unwanted dilemma. A maze of tents and ramshackle RVs characterizes the face of the city, casting a gloomy shadow on the picturesque homes that are fighting to preserve their curb appeal. Homeowners, like a local woman whose quaint three-bedroom house has been in the market for three months, are starting to feel the sting of policies that prioritize inclusivity over regulation. The idyllic charm of the streets is being substituted by unsanctioned camping sites and bustling drug havens.
Ironically, potential buyers aren’t flocking to these properties. Every ‘for sale’ sign seems to translate into an invitation for squatters rather than potential homeowners. The city’s laissez-faire approach towards the rampant encroachment is creating the perfect habitat for homelessness and addiction, turning once-desirable neighborhoods into modern-day ‘Skid Rows’. Homeowners are caught in the crossfire of compassion and governance, left wondering whether they are the unintended casualties of the city’s utopian visions. Residents are finding themselves in the backseat of their own lives, left with no other choice but to accept the depreciating value of their most cherished assets and consider moving elsewhere. They fear that the city’s promise of inclusivity, albeit noble, is placing the burden on their shoulders, forcing them to shoulder the external depreciation of their properties and the deterioration of their peace.
