Oregon to Consider New Densities for Transit Adjacent Neighborhoods
Rachel Monahan reports on a bill proposed this week in the Oregon Senate that would "require metro-area cities to allow 75 housing units per acre within a quarter mile of frequent transit and 45 units within a half mile. That number goes up to 140 units within a quarter mile of a light-rail station."
Senate Bill 10, authored by Senate President Peter Courtney (D-Salem), expands on the levels of density enabled by House Speaker Tina Kotek (D-Portland) that would end single-family zoning in cities throughout the state.
