Oregon Switches Up Single-Family Zoning

Jul 17, 2019

Your town may begin to look different in the near future.  A bill that became law in Oregon's recent legislative session changed the zoning of multiple-family homes; they can be built in more places now, including portions of town zoned for single-family homes only. 

The legislature passed the measure, but it's up to local planning departments to enforce the law.  City of Medford Planning Director Matt Brinkley has had some time to research the effects, as has Robin Hostick, who holds the same position in Eugene.

They visit with their findings.
