• 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. For more information visit the project website at: www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/infill

  • Public review of the Residential Infill Project preliminary code and map amendments to begin in October.

    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 for the project’s three topic areas: scale of houses, housing opportunity and narrow lots. The Discussion Draft Report and accompanying Map App—an interactive online map that shows how the proposals will affect each specific property—will be available the first week in October.

    Please hold the date for the Project Kick-off Meeting


    Tuesday, Oct 10th at the Portland Building Auditorium, 1120 SW 5th

    Staff will be available to answer questions and distribute reports starting at 5:00 pm; presentation on the proposals at 6:30 pm.

    Staff will be available at a series of district drop-in office hours as well as other meetings and events during the 7-week public review. You will be able to submit comments through the Map App as well as an open-ended comment form, available both online and in paper form. Comments received will inform changes made to the Proposed Draft for the Planning and Sustainability Commission. Efforts will be made during the public review to familiarize interested parties with the proposals in preparation for their testimony to the Planning and Sustainability Commission and subsequently City Council later next year. (see timeline below)

    Stay tuned … next week we will send you more information about upcoming public review opportunities.
