Overview

Join us for this special edition 2-hour update webinar providing the latest in HB 2001 zoning changes for Bend and other larger 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 as of January 2020 (see map of affected cities).

The city of Bend’s code was updated on November 5, 2021 to reflect this change, while HB2001 will go into effect statewide on July 1st, 2022. This class covers how these new residential zoning regulations under HB2001 will dramatically change what can be done on residential properties, including duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhouses and cottage clusters. 

Simultaneously, Oregon Senate Bill 458 will be going into effect statewide on July 1, 2022 which will allow for fee simple land divisions of middle housing. This will allow a lot to be divided into multiple smaller lots, which will hopefully foster the creation of lower cost housing options in rapidly appreciating markets like Bend. 

This training will address this legislative topic and provides an opportunity for attendees to consider how these zoning changes impact their development entitlements. There will be an opportunity to ask questions about these new regulations as well as market development feasibility variables. 

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 City of Bend’s Senior Planner, Pauline Hardie, and Jesse Russell, owner of Hiatus Homes.
