What is the Type B permit process?

Type B Accessory Short Term Rentals must be approved through a discretionary Type II or Type III Conditional Use land use review. For more information on this review process, please see the BDS website: Conditional Use Review | Land Use Review Types | The City of Portland, Oregon or visit a BDS planner in the Development Services Center or phone them at (503) 823-7526 to discuss a Type B Accessory Short-Term Rental and the Land Use Conditional Use Review process. 

See application fees for a Type II or Type III Conditional Use review. The land use review must be approved and the decision recorded with the Multnomah County Recorder before the permit process is completed. It is not necessary for you to complete an additional Accessory Short-Term Rental application form or complete any other neighborhood notification. As part of the Conditional Use land use review, your application will be reviewed for compliance with the use-related regulations and standards of 33.207.050, including verification of occupancy by submittal of a copy of an Oregon Driver’s License or Oregon Identification Card for the resident.

For an overview of the Type B Conditional Use process and guidance on issues to consider before applying, see this handout.
