CUSTOMER AND COMMUNITY NOTIFICATION
On Wednesday, December 2, 2015 Portland City Council approved changes to City of Portland Title 33, Portland Zoning Code as part of the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability Regulatory Improvement Program, Accessory Structures Project.
The Accessory Structures Zoning Code Update project revises the regulations for accessory structures with a focus on detached accessory structures, such as garages, covered patios, storage sheds and accessory dwelling units (ADUs), as well as decks, trellises, ADA ramps and mechanical equipment. The amendments streamline the standards to create one set of regulations for all covered accessory structures that is based more on form (setbacks, height and bulk) rather than function (how the building is used).
