The City’s Middle Housing project is moving to the City Council review process. After many months of thorough and thoughtful review, the Planning Commission unanimously voted to recommend approval on a set of land use code and plan amendments.
Now, the middle housing code proposal moves into the City Council review process, which includes a public hearing on April 18, as well as work sessions in April and May. The State of Oregon’s deadline for implementation of House Bill 2001 is June 30, 2022.
In advance of these upcoming meetings, the team is planning an array of opportunities for interested community members to learn about the Planning Commission’s recommendation and prepare to participate in the Council proceedings.
Community information sessions will be held over Zoom, on the following dates:
- February 18 at 12:00 – 1:30 pm
- February 22 at 5:30 – 7:00 pm
- March 3 at 7:00 – 8:30 pm
The community is encouraged to check out the Guide to the Planning Commission Recommendation for links to project information, summaries of the Planning Commission’s proposed code, summaries of Land Use Code incentives, how to get involved, and more!
Community members can send public comments to email@example.com. Staff will share comments with City Council as the April 18th public hearing date approaches.
