Planning Consultant Services for House Bill 2001 Middle Housing Code and Comprehensive Plan Updates


The City of Lake Oswego is seeking an experienced consultant to conduct research and analysis related to future amendments to the Lake Oswego Comprehensive Plan and Community Development Code (CDC) that comply with the provisions of House Bill 2001 (HB 2001) regarding middle housing.

The City has been awarded a Planning Assistance Grant from the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) and has budgeted additional funds to conduct research and analysis in order to prepare conceptual alternatives for Comprehensive Plan and CDC amendments that comply with the middle housing requirements for large and metro cities under HB 2001. Additional scope of the project includes ensuring that recommendations for HB 2001 compliance address the varying neighborhood conditions in Lake Oswego through an in-depth study of existing neighborhood character. The final deliverables for this project are intended to provide a baseline of information with which to conduct a neighborhood outreach process and guide discussions with Lake Oswego residents on how HB 2001 should be implemented locally.

The desired consultant team skills include the following:

  • Demographic research and analysis;
  • Housing policy;
  • Development code writing;
  • GIS;
  • Comprehensive land use planning; and
  • Urban design.

City staff will lead future public involvement and provide planning, public finance, GIS, and engineering expertise.
