On December 21, 2016, City Council voted unanimously to amend Portland’s Zoning Code and Housing Code to implement an Inclusionary Housing Program. The following projects are subject to the new requirements:
Effective Date of Inclusionary Housing (IH) Program Requirements
The new Inclusionary Housing (IH) Program requirements go into effect on February 1, 2017. For background information on the new requirements, visit the Inclusionary Housing Program website and for information about the related changes to the zoning code, see the Inclusionary Housing Zoning Code Project website.
The zoning code provides three alternative ways to meet the requirements:
The percentage of dwelling units required to be affordable, and the minimum rates of affordability vary. These requirements are found in the zoning code, in chapter 33.245:
Vesting A Project Under Existing Zoning Code Regulations
To learn more about how changes in land use regulations may affect Land Use Review and Building Permit applications please see our Vesting FAQ.
Minimum Submittal Requirements
We encourage Land Use Review and Building Permit applicants interested in vesting projects under current Zoning Code requirements to contact us with questions and submit applications as early as possible. This will help ensure that minimum submittal requirements are met, the application can be deemed complete and intake review fees can be paid. To ensure multi-family projects conform with minimum submittal requires, until February 1, 2017, BDS is temporarily suspending the use of the “Straight to Intake Form” for all multi-family projects with 20 or more units.
