Portland’s Design overlay zones are getting an update, and project staff wants your input. The project’s Discussion Draft has launched, and public comments are welcome through April 12, 2019.
The DOZA project will revise the rules and processes that some new buildings go through to ensure people-oriented design serves residents, workers, and visitors in our most vibrant places.
Read the Discussion Draft documents.
Please send feedback or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
