Oregon cities uneasy with plan to eliminate single-family zoning in neighborhoods

August 28th, 2018 - Elliot Njus | The Oregonian

House Bill 2001 would effectively abolish single-family zoning in cities with more than 10,000 residents, allowing the construction of multi-unit homes, as well as dividing existing homes into more than one living space. The proposal also calls for allowing “cottage clusters,” or small detached homes that share a common yard.


Excerpt from Article and Public Hearing:

Sherwood’s City Council also voted to oppose the plan. City Council President Tim Rosener said the city’s school district is already nearing its bonding capacity, limiting its ability to absorb students who move into the district.
