||Residential Infill Project Open House set for people with disabilities on July 20
Age-Friendly Portland is hosting a Residential Infill Project Open House focused on people with disabilities and older adults on Wednesday, July 20, from 4 to 6 pm. This opportunity to provide input on Portland's zoning code changes for single-family areas will benefit from feedback concerning improving housing accessibility. The open house will be at Portland State University's Urban Center, 506 SW Mill Street in the Parsons Gallery on the second floor.
Portland is growing and the community's housing needs are changing. Nearly 123,000 new households are projected by 2035. About 20 percent of new housing units will be built in Portland's single-dwelling residential zones. Increased cultural and racial diversity and an aging population will also affect housing needs.
Portlanders have expressed concerns about the size of new houses, demolitions and the rising cost and lack of housing choices throughout the city. In response, City's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) is taking a fresh look at the allowances for development in single-dwelling neighborhoods. The Residential Infill Project proposes key code changes related to: scale of houses, housing types and historically narrow lots.
BPS has developed a draft proposal for public review and feedback. Feedback received will inform the recommendation to City Council in fall 2016. For further information and to participate in a survey, visit the BPS website here. Age-Friendly Portland has details about the July 20th Residential Infill Project Open House on its website.
