City Releases Land Use Code Evaluation

ReCode Portland

The City of Portland has released a detailed review of the City’s land use code as part of ReCode Portland. The review and recommendations, contained within a Land Use Code Evaluation, are based on the goals and vision of the city’s comprehensive plan, Portland’s Plan 2030, broad public input received on Portland’s Plan and during previous phases of the project, and technical analysis of the existing code. The evaluation was prepared for the City by Camiros, a planning and zoning consulting firm. 

The Code Evaluation focuses squarely on key issues for the city, including housing, climate change adaptation and mitigation, complete neighborhoods, transportation choice, and equity.  The evaluation is meant to serve as a road map for the City as it considers amendments to the land use code and zoning map under future stages of the ReCode Portland process.  

The City is asking for public feedback on the Code Evaluation. The evaluation will be available for public comment through December and January, when the City anticipates a public forum on the recommendations. The evaluation can be read, downloaded, and commented on at www.recodeportland.me/code-evaluation.  

The City Council will also receive a communication update regarding the ReCode process during its Monday, December 20 meeting. 

What is ReCode Portland

ReCode Portland is the City of Portland’s first major effort to comprehensively rewrite its land use code in over 50 years. The goal of ReCode Portland is to create a new, unified development code to serve Portland for the 21st century. The new code will be more user-friendly, will advance the goals of the city’s comprehensive plan, Portland’s Plan 2030, and be better equipped to meet the many needs of the city in such areas as housing, design, preservation, conservation, the working waterfront, energy, and transportation. For more information, visit www.recodeportland.me.  In addition to the project website, updates will also be posted at https://portland.civilspace.io/en/projects/recode-portland.
