Project Description

A request by the City of Lake Oswego for amendments to the Community Development Code (CDC).  Proposed amendments are related to Clear and Objective Housing Standards and are being proposed to bring the Code into compliance with State requirements intended to reduce unnecessary costs and delays in permitting needed housing.

At its meeting on October 13, 2014, the Commission received public testimony and conducted deliberations on additional information related to classifying multiple duplexes on a lot as Minor Development.  On October 27 the Commission will review and make a recommendation on a revised draft of all the proposed code amendments, which incorporates comments from the August 11 and October 13, 2014 hearings.

In response to public testimony the Planning Commission will consider additional information at the continued hearing on Monday, October 13.  Public testimony will be accepted at the hearing.  Please see the notice (09/30/14), below, for additional information on how to comment.
