Provide Your Input Online: Lake Oswego Code Streamlining and Updates Project

Posted Fri, 01/18/2013 - 3:03pm

If you were unable to attend the public open house for the Phase 2 Code Streamlining and Updates project held on December 13, you have another opportunity to review the Commercial Code Concepts and send us your comments online.
All of the materials from the December 13th public open house, along with a comment form that you can fill out and submit online are available at the following link:

The materials outline the draft code concepts for streamlining commercial zoning and land use standards and removing barriers to mixed use development in these zones.  The online comment forms are due by January 31, 2013.

The Phase 2 Community Development Code Streamlining and Updates project continues the work of the 2010 Community Development Code Audit and the Phase 1 Code Reorganization project completed earlier this year.  It also supports the We Love Lake Oswego Comprehensive Plan Update.  The goal of this initiative is to make the Code more clear, concise, adaptable and user-friendly.  The updates are also intended to facilitate future housing and job growth in existing commercial and mixed use areas instead of in low density neighborhoods.

(Please note that this online open house will only address the commercial and mixed use zoning component of the overall project.)
