In every city around the world, neighborhoods are constantly changing. It’s important we work together as a community to make sure that change is for the better and includes all of us. Our city’s popularity and existing zoning rules have enticed home builders to construct large, expensive new houses at a time when families are getting smaller and more people need a place to live.
To address these issues around growth and change, the City of Portland is taking a fresh look at the rules that govern the types of housing allowed in our neighborhoods. The proposed changes allow more housing units to be built in residential neighborhoods, but only if they follow new limits on size and scale.
A proposed draft of these new rules is now before the Planning and Sustainability Commission. And they want to hear from you. Whether you own a home or rent, it’s important that they hear from Portlanders of all ages, incomes, backgrounds and abilities. Because we all need a place to live.
