Over 7,000 people participated in the online infill survey, now the Residential Infill Project gears up for all-day stakeholder charrette and public open house

The Residential Infill Stakeholder Advisory Committee will spend Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016 discussing regulatory options for future residential development in single-dwelling zones. At the conclusion of this work session, the public is invited to an open house to learn more about the project. 

Charrette and public open house  

The charrette and public open house will be held at the Portland Building, 1120 SW 5th Avenue, Second Floor, Room C. The event will include parts:

  • SAC charrette (9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)

SAC members will be discussing scale of residential infill in single-dwelling zones and appropriate locations for narrow/skinny houses. All SAC meetings are open to the public, and there will be general seating available for the public to observe throughout the day.

  • Public open house (5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.)

Project staff will give an overview of the project, share initial results from the online infill survey, and describe highlights from the SAC’s discussions during the charrette. Materials, graphic illustrations and maps from the charrette will be on display.

Online Survey

Thanks to everyone who completed the residential infill online survey. More than 7,000 surveys were received during the five-week survey period (December 9, 2015 through January 12, 2016). A final report of the survey results, including all written comments, will be posted on the project website by mid-February. Staff will use the results to help identify key community values as alternatives for regulating development in single-dwelling zones are developed for community review later this spring.
