Land Use Hearing: ZDO-277: Housing Strategies, Phase 1 - Oct. 6

The Land Use Housing Strategies project (LUHSP) includes three phases of amendments to the county’s Zoning & Development Ordinance (ZDO) to provide zoning opportunities to help alleviate the housing shortage in unincorporated Clackamas County — particularly housing that can be afforded by people at different income levels. Collectively, the amendments would provide more residential development opportunities for property owners throughout most of the urban unincorporated area. 

The focus today is ZDO-277, the first phase, which includes amendments that would: 

  1. Increase the affordable housing density bonus; 
  2. Change parking requirements for multifamily developments; and 
  3. Increase the amount of housing allowed in certain urban unincorporated commercial zones.
