Residential Infill Project to Go Before City Council in November

Portland's Residential Infill Project will go before City Council November 9th and 16th. The project aims to address concerns about the size of new houses as well as the rising cost of housing.  The goal is to limit the construction of "McMansions" while expanding the ability to build duplexes and triplexes. The plan would also rezone narrow lots to R2.5 in some areas. An article about the proposal appeared on the Portland-based Open: Housing blog, here, and a summary report by the city can be found here.
