A-Engrossed Ordinance No. 886 Amendments to Comprehensive Framework Plan for Middle Housing

Amends the Comprehensive Framework Plan for the Urban Area (CFP) to implement state law changes adopted in House Bill (HB) 2001, the Middle Housing bill. Amendments affect CFP Policies, Implementing Strategies, and Summary Findings and Conclusions to reflect current conditions and add reference to Middle Housing. 

Effective July 7, 2022. Learn more  ​​​​​​

A-Engrossed Ordinance No. 885 Middle Housing

Amends the Community Development Code (CDC) to implement state law changes adopted in HB 2001, the Middle Housing bill. Amendments allow duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhouses and cottage cluster developments in all residential districts that currently allow single-detached homes. Amendments include siting and design requirements for middle housing, related updates for certain other housing types, and changes for clarity and consistency in affected CDC sections.

Effective July 28, 2022.  Learn more

Ordinance No. 883 Cornelius Pass Road Extension

Proposes to amend the TSP to include the Cornelius Pass Road extension on rural land between Rosedale Road and Farmington Road. The amendments are on rural land and therefore require exceptions to Statewide Planning Goals 3 (Agricultural Land), 4 (Forest Land), 11 (Public Facilities and Services) and 14 (Urbanization). The addition of the Cornelius Pass Road extension to the plan provides for a connected system to meet long-term community needs and the extension meets the criteria for the listed goal exceptions.

Rejected Oct. 18, 2022. Learn more

A-Engrossed Ordinance No. 890 Middle Housing Land Divisions

Adds standards and procedures for middle housing land divisions, as required by 2021 Oregon Senate Bill 458. It also makes minor amendments to recently adopted regulations for middle housing. The engrossment reduces minimum side yard setbacks in certain circumstances for middle housing/middle housing land divisions and clarifies adopted criteria for related side yard setback reductions for other housing. It also allows existing road improvements that were previously approved and built to County standard, regardless of right-of-way and/or partial easement width, to serve as an alternative to adopted minimum right-of-way standards for middle housing, Single Detached Dwelling or its expansion.

Effective March 9, 2023.  Learn more

A-Engrossed Ordinance No 889 Minor Amendments

Makes a number of minor amendments to the Comprehensive Framework Plan for the Urban Area (CFP), the Bethany Community Plan, and the Community Development Code (CDC) to update plan polices and CDC provisions for clarity and accuracy, revise processes and reduce barriers to urban residential development. The engrossment added a reference to the membership of CCI Committees in Section 107-6 and revises language related to sales of lots or parcels in Section 602-4 for consistency with statute. The proposed addition of a new Type 1 Setback Adjustment process in Section 435 was removed, as were changes to side yard setbacks in Sections 304-307.

Effective March 9, 2023.  Learn more

B-Engrossed Ordinance No. 882 Tile Flat Road Extension

Proposes to amend the Transportation System Plan (TSP) to include Refinement Areas that recognize the need for the Tile Flat Road extension to connect between Scholls Ferry Road and Roy Rogers Road at Bull Mountain Road. The Refinement Areas preserve the opportunity to evaluate the preferred alignment and function of the roadway through urban comprehensive planning.

In progress.  Learn more

Ordinance No. 897 Amendments to Reflect Metro UGB Land Exchange

Amends the Comprehensive Framework Plan for the Urban Area (CFP), Rural/Natural Resource Plan (RNRP), and Bull Mountain Community Plan to reflect a recent Metro Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) land exchange resulting in a UGB expansion in Washington County to add land known as River Terrace 2.0.

In progress.  Learn more

Ordinance No. 899 Amendment to Expand the North Plains UGB

Proposes to amend the Comprehensive Framework Plan for the Urban Area (CFP) and the Rural/Natural Resource Plan (RNRP) to expand the North Plains Urban Growth Boundary (UGB).
