The 2035 Comprehensive Plan Early Implementation Package included many changes (amendments) to Portland’s Zoning Code, including the Mixed Use Zones, Campus Institutional Zoning and Employment Zoning projects. The City also recently adopted new Inclusionary Housing Zoning provisions.
Because of the connections and relationships between code sections, some items in the existing code will need further amendments to function properly. The Code Reconciliation Project will amend the Zoning Code and other City regulations to ensure compatibility with Zoning Code amendments adopted by Portland City Council in December 2016.
In addition to minor technical amendments to correct code references and other provisions in the Zoning Code, this project will include code changes with possible policy implications. These include code changes to ensure consistency with the new Inclusionary Housing program, alignment of floor area and bonus allowances in some plan districts, and potential revisions to the neighborhood contact requirements, among others.
