On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, the Residential Infill Project (RIP) kicked off a new round of public involvement at the Multnomah Art Center. More than 100 community members showed up to learn more about the project, ask questions and voice their concerns about new development in Portland's single-dwelling neighborhoods.
In response to community concerns about demolition and infill, RIP staff and the stakeholder advisory committee are exploring ways to adapt Portland’s single-dwelling zoning rules to meet the needs of current and future generations. Draft proposals to reduce the scale of new houses, allow more housing options and address issues around historically narrow lots are now available for public review and comment.
Portlanders will have many more opportunities to learn about the draft proposals, and staff will use the public input to refine proposals for City Council to consider in the fall. From June 15 to August 15, the public is invited to review draft proposals and take an online questionnaire.
More open houses are scheduled throughout the city in June and July to give community members a chance to review staff proposals. The presentations will be the same at all locations.
Please come to learn about the project, review the proposals, ask questions and share your feedback.
