Mayor Ted Wheeler has directed Bureau of Planning and Sustainability staff to bring a recommendation on the RIP housing overlay zone boundary to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) for public hearings and deliberations. The boundary will reflect the goals for the project as well as constraints, such as whether transportation and sewer infrastructure can handle the additional demand. The boundary may also be adjusted based on physical barriers and natural features and will be reviewed for potential economic, housing affordability and equity impacts.
This fall, prior to the PSC hearings, community members will have an opportunity to review the draft code changes and zoning map amendments. The PSC is expected to forward their recommendation to City Council by Spring 2018.
Staff is planning to conduct a check-in with the community later this spring. Stay tuned for more information on the timeline and upcoming ways to participate in the project.
