Land Use Code Amendendment Vote at Eugene City Council Meeting: May 14, 2018

The City Council is scheduled to take action on three ordinances pertaining to land use code amendments. The first ordinance includes amendments related to the allowance of secondary dwellings. The goal of the proposed amendments is to expand the areas in which secondary dwellings are allowed in the City, as required by recent state legislation (Phase 1 Implementation of Senate Bill 1051).

The proposed amendments focus on where secondary dwellings will be allowed in the City and will increase the number of zones where secondary dwellings are permitted.

Ordinance #2 includes the Planning Commission’s recommendation to align the definition of secondary dwelling with the definition of accessory dwelling provided in Senate Bill 1051.

Ordinance #3 includes the Planning Commission’s recommended land use code amendment to allow two affordable housing units on church, synagogue and temple property.
