Planning and Sustainability Commission Holds April 22 Public Hearing on Regulatory Improvement Code Amendment Package

The Planning and Sustainability Commission will hold a hearing on the Regulatory Improvement Code Amendment Package (RICAP 6): Proposed Draft on April 22, beginning at 6 p.m. Public testimony on short-term rentals and the other proposed code amendments will be taken at this time.

The Proposed Draft was refined based upon input received over seven weeks of outreach during the review of the Discussion Draft. While RICAP 6 includes more than 40 code amendments based on public requests, including improvements to wireless facilities and clarifying regulations on temporary activities such as construction staging, emergency situations and on-site filming, the greatest interest expressed by Portlanders was on the proposed new regulations around short-term rentals.  A summary memo of the feedback on the initial short-term rental proposal captures the key ideas in support of and opposition to the proposed code amendments and contains staff's responses to questions and concerns.
