As a reminder, the Residential Infill Project Stakeholder Advisory Committee (RIPSAC) seeks to
find a solution to the projected 123,000 additional households expected to call Portland “home” by 2035. Keeping in mind that 20% of the additional housing units will be built in single-family dwelling zones and that the Urban Growth Boundary is what it is, Portland needs to create new “rules” around the scale and design of new construction as well as address what you can do with the property you currently
have. The first step in all of this is to change the zoning code so that limitations are loosened for square footage.

Owners of property affected by the proposed changes should receive official notices in the mail. Public review of the draft proposal ended on August 15th and the committee compiled public feedback into
a published summary: www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/590169.

With this feedback, staff is developing recommendations for City Council. These should be available the week of October 10. City Council will then have a work session on November 1. A public hearing will follow on November 9. Zoning code amendments will occur through a legislative process in 2017. Feel free to get involved and get updates via their e-newsletter available at www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/67728.

And if you have any specific questions relative to Sumner’s land use changes or any questions pertaining to Land Use or Transportation in Sumner, feel free to email your local representative: Erin Middleton at sumner.neighborhood.landuse@gmail.com.
