<br />DATE: July 18, 2019
<br />This memorandum presents an overview of key provisions of two complex bills adopted by the
<br />2019 Legislature: HB 2001 and HB 2003. It is for information purposes only. Staff analysis of
<br />the bills and their effects will be presented at a study session anticipated to be scheduled for
<br />this fall.
<br />Each bill is awaiting the Governor's signature.
<br />HOUSE BILL 2001 (2019)
<br />Unless indicated otherwise, the summary lists requirements that apply to Lake Oswego and
<br />other cities within the Metro boundaries that have populations greater than 1,000. Some
<br />requirements may differ for smaller cities or cities outside the Metro area having their own
<br />urban growth boundaries.
<br />Middle Housing Defined.
<br />HB 2001 defines "middle housing" as duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, cottage clusters, and
<br />townhouses. The bill defines "cottage clusters" as groupings of no fewer than four detached
<br />housing units per acre with a footprint of less than 900 square feet each and that include a
<br />common courtyard. "Townhouses" are defined as dwelling units in a row of two or more
<br />attached units, where each unit is on an individual lot or parcel and shares at least one common
<br />wall with an adjacent unit.
