Bills in Washington Legislature Would Re-Legalize Multi-Unit Buildings in Single Family Neighborhoods
Two bills in the Washington Legislature - HB 2780 and SB 6536 - would re-legalize small plex buildings in single family neighborhoods. Oregon passed similar legislation (HB 2001) last year, effectively eliminating single family zoning statewide. The proposals in Washington would allow triplexes on any lot, and up to six-plexes on some lots in single family zones in cities with 15,000 residents or more. For cities with 10,000-15,000 residents, duplexes would be allowed on single family lots. Read more.
