Batch Submittal and Review Process - for projects of three or more units


Projects that include three or more structures built to the Oregon Residential Specialty Code or Inter-national Residential Code and are either located on a single tax lot or attached to each other are applied for through the Batch Track. Examples of Batch Track Projects could include three townhouse units on one tax lot, three townhouses on separate tax lots, or a group of three single-family homes on one tax lot.

These projects necessitate Batch Track processing due to the unique Planning and Zoning requirements for these projects that differ from those which apply to standard single-family development. In addition, projects involving multiple structures on one tax lot require a separate Site Development permit for the common infrastructure elements such as driveways, utilities, and landscaping.
