Historic and conservation districts

 Homeowners in Portland’s historic and conservation districts will have an easier time making minor modifications to their homes when a proposed set of code amendments is adopted.

In response to community concerns about the time and expense involved in historic design review, the Bureaus of Planning and Sustainability and Development Services developed this proposal in collaboration with homeowners, remodelers and historic resource advocates.

The City Council is expected to hold a hearing on the code amendments at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27.
