Reminder – Zoning Code Changes for Accessory Structures Took Affect December 2015

Zoning Code Changes for Accessory Structures

Changes in Accessory Structure Zoning Code were approved December 2, 2015 by Portland City Council. BDS sent a Customer and Community Notification with a high level summary of how the changes impact building accessory structures such as garages, storage sheds, home offices, and accessory dwelling units (ADUs). 

More detailed information about the changes can be found in the Draft for the Accessory Structures Zoning Code Update. A two page summary of the changes is available also on the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability website.
