Comments on the Discussion Draft are due by November 20, 2017.

Project staff are ready to share the draft code and map amendments with the community. Portlanders are invited to learn more about the Discussion Draft and give their feedback in the coming weeks. This outreach period is focused on familiarizing community members with the detailed amendments in preparation for the Planning and Sustainability Commission and subsequently City Council hearings later next year.


Materials for public review include a project summary and the Discussion Draft in three volumes:

  • Volume 1: Staff Report and Map Amendments — includes project overview and introduction, analysis of proposals, as well as the methodology for creating the Housing Opportunity Overlay – the new ‘a’ overlay.
  • Volume 2: Zoning Code Amendments — the actual regulations.
  • Volume 3: Appendices — includes Guidance from the Comprehensive Plan, FAR Background, R2.5 Catalog, Visitability Best Practices, Map Refinements, and Historically Narrow Lot Background.

Parcel-specific information that shows which amendments will affect individual properties is available through the Map App — an interactive online map.

Review all documents in the Residential Infill Project Discussion Draft
