Applicants: Clackamas County

Proposal: ZDO-273 includes the following amendments to the County’s Zoning & Development Ordinance (ZDO):

ZDO Section 202 (Definitions): the definition of “dwelling unit” would be amended to make it clear that the rental of a dwelling unit on a short-term basis is allowed; and

ZDO Section 833 (Guest Houses): existing text that specifically prohibits using a guest house as a source of rental income would be removed and replaced with text that makes it clear that the rental of a guest house on a short-term basis is allowed. Specific facilities allowed and not allowed in guest houses would also be clarified.

The effect of these amendments would be to specifically allow STRs in legal dwellings and guest houses.
