Oregon ADU Zoning Updates: HB2001 & Portland RIP

Gain ADU implementation updates per OR House Bill 2001 & PDX Residential Infill Project

Close More

Join us for a special edition 1.5-hour ADU update webinar providing the latest in ADU zoning changes for Oregon housing markets.

Oregon House Bill 2001 was passed into law in 2019 thereby requiring Oregon cities with more than 2,500 people to update their ADU codes to eliminate occupancy requirements and off-street parking requirements by January 2020 (see map of affected cities and overview summary).

The City of Portland recently passed the Residential Infill Project that will result in a substantial overhaul of single family residential zoning regulations that was nearly five years in the making and that will go into effect in August 2021 (see infographic).

The changes under both the House Bill 2001 and Residential Infill Project are broad and sweeping in terms of ADU development opportunities on residential properties. This training will cover both of these legislative topics, and then provide an opportunity for people to consider how these zoning changes impact their development entitlements through live Q&A.

Q&A with Special Guests

The webinar will conclude with a 30-min Q&A session that will feature the primary webinar presenter, Kol Peterson, and the lead authors of the two regulations: Morgan Tracy, project manager for Portland’s Residential Infill Project, and Ethan Stuckmayer, Senior Planner for Oregon’s Department of Land Conservation and Development.
