Time to Take a Look: New Rules Will Allow Housing Variety in Neighborhoods 

Beaverton staff members have been working through the Housing Options Project to prepare rules that will allow duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhomes and cottage clusters in Beaverton’s residential neighborhoods. 

You and your neighbors can head to www.BeavertonOregon.gov/HOP to see the latest versions of those rules and find out about opportunities to comment through public engagement events and meetings, including meetings at the Planning Commission and City Council. Find out more at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/PlanningCommission and www.BeavertonOregon.gov/CityCouncil.  

The rules will be based on the preferred approach, which also can be found on the project website. In October, the City Council reviewed the preferred approach and directed staff to proceed with writing new Development Code rules.
