Recommended Draft includes amendments to short-term rental regulations
The Portland City Council will hold a public hearing on the Regulatory Improvement Code Amendment Package 6 (RICAP 6) Recommended Draft on June 4, beginning at 2 p.m. Public testimony on short term rentals and many other zoning code amendments will be taken at this time.
The Planning and Sustainability Commission’s Recommended Draft is based on input and testimony received during a 3-month public outreach period and a public hearing on April 22, 2014.
RICAP 6 includes many amendments to the zoning code, including changes that:
- Allow limited modifications of wireless facilities to conform with federal regulations.
- Clarify regulations on temporary activities such as construction staging, temporary filming and emergency situations.
- Extending zoning protections to designated historic resources located in the public right of way.
However, the public is most interested in the new regulations for short term rentals. Testimony on any of the recommended code changes is welcome at the City Council hearing on June 4.
