High-Density Zoning Update

Portland has some interesting new higher density zoning coming our way.  There’s a plan in the works that changes the density of some of our neighborhoods, especially along transit corridors.  It’s big. We’re happy to chat with anyone about what’s happening behind the scenes if you’re curious. 

Think ‘that’s not me, I live in a single family zone’? Currently in-process in the House of Representatives is a proposal from House Speaker Tina Kotek to allow multifamily in single family residential areas.  It’s a throwback to the old days when Portland neighborhoods were a mix of single family and a few duplexes and triplexes mixed in.  The proposed plan adds duplexes to single family zoning in Oregon cities with a population of 10,00 or more and cottage clusters and up to fourplexes in Oregon cities with populations above 25,000.
