Residential Infill Project (RIP) Public Comment Ends Nov. 20th

The project team drafted code and map concepts for public review. Presentation was at the Sept. 14th LUTOP meeting @CNN.

Since City Council’s adoption of the Concept Report in December 2016, project staff have been developing code and map changes to implement the adopted concepts. Staff are also responding to mayoral direction to draft a housing opportunity overlay zone boundary for the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) to consider.

This fall the public will have an opportunity to review proposed code changes and Zoning Map amendments prior to the PSC hearings in winter 2018. The seven-week public review period ends Nov. 20th.

HOW TO COMMENT

Comments are due by Nov. 20, 2017. You may submit comments on the Discussion Draft in several ways:

City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability
Attn: Residential Infill Project
1900 SW 4th Avenue, Suite 7100
Portland, OR 97201

How will my comments be used?

Comments on the Residential Infill Project Discussion Draft will be directed to City staff, who will use the feedback as they develop a proposal for the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC). This Proposed Draft will be considered by the PSC early next year, and Portlanders will be able to give formal testimony on the Proposed Draft at that time.

What is this project about?

In response to community concerns about demolitions and the scale of new homes, as well as the supply of housing in Portland, the Residential Infill Project is updating Portland’s single-dwelling zoning rules to better meet the changing housing needs of current and future residents. The project addresses three topic areas: scale of houses, housing opportunity and narrow lots.

Neighborhood Contact Requirement Project

A new project kicks off to improve how we inform residents about new development.

This project will review the “Neighborhood Contact” requirement in the Zoning Code (33.700.025)( https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/53464), exploring ways to create a workable and effective process that meets the goals of information sharing and early dialogue with community members. This was an element of the Code Reconciliation Project, but has now been moved to a separate project.
