Portland's Planning and Sustainability Commission is Making Big Changes to the Residential Infill Plan

Portland's Planning and Sustainability Commission is working on changes to the proposed Residential Infill Plan, which it hopes will encourage the development of "missing middle" housing in the city. Changes include a tiered system for building square footage, which would allow single family homes up to 2,500 square feet, duplexes up to 3,000 square feet, and three- and four-plexes up to 3,500 square feet. Four-plexes will also be allowed on all lots, and properties with at least one affordable unit will qualify for a square foot bonus. Areas covered by the plan will also now extend east of 82nd Avenue. Read more.
