DOZA featured at Design Week Portland; Discussion Draft comments deadline extended

Design is an important part of any good urban space. That’s why the City of Portland is updating its design overlay (d-overlay) zone to ensure our public spaces meet the needs of current and future residents.

The Design Overlay Zone Amendments (DOZA) project is updating the rules and processes for Portland’s d-overlay and design review program, and we want to share the latest drafts of changes to the process and tools for design review across the city.
