Commissioners made suggestions at the conclusion of public hearing on the proposal to increase the number beds and locations for temporary housing for people experiencing homelessness
Staff with the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) presented the Mass Shelters and Housing Zoning Code Update Proposed Draft at a public hearing with the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) on September 14.
At the conclusion of the hearing, commissioners deferred making a decision until September 27 and asked staff to consider some changes to the BPS proposal.
Staff have released a memo with their response to these suggestions in anticipation of the September 27 work session. The PSC will determine whether to accept the amendments within the memo prior to making their recommendation to City Council.
City Council will hold a public hearing and consider testimony on the PSC Recommended Draft in early November.

Over the course of two months (from June 15 to August 15), hundreds of Portlanders reviewed and commented on draft proposals for new regulations in single-dwelling neighborhoods. The proposed zoning for new houses and remodels would affect scale, housing types and narrow lot development in single-dwelling residential areas.
During the eight-week public review period, staff collected more than 1,400 public comments from an online questionnaire, comment forms, chart pack notes at open houses, as well as emails and letters. Thanks to everyone who took the time to learn about the proposals and give feedback, including concerns and suggestions.
A summary report of the feedback on the Residential Infill Project draft proposal is now available on the project website. The summary report includes six appendixes that provide the entire text of the comments received, the notes from the open house Q & A sessions, and demographic cross-tab tables for the questionnaire data.
While the comment period has ended, the online open house of draft proposals will be available to review through September.
The project team is using the feedback on the draft proposals to develop recommended concepts for City Council to consider at a series of public hearings in November. The recommended concept report will be available later in October for the public to review.
City Council is expected to give staff direction to develop Zoning Code language that will implement the recommended concepts. The code development process will begin in 2017 and include a Discussion Draft public review period, followed by public hearings at the Planning and Sustainability Commission, before going back to City Council for a final decision.
