Middle Housing (HB2001) Code Update Project
The City of Roseburg was awarded grant funding from the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development for assistance in developing proposed amendments to the Title 12 (Land Use and Development Regulations) of the City's Municipal code. These amendments will be designed to comply with House Bill 2001 and provide opportunities for middle housing options that are currently missing from the City’s code or could be improved upon. Middle housing includes at a minimum duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, cottage clusters and townhouses. Based on its current size, Roseburg is required to adopt provisions permitting duplexes on or before June 30, 2021 at a minimum. The City is also committed to developing provisions to permit all types of middle housing through this project, which can then be adopted after June 30, 2021, on a separate timeline.
Over the course of the next several months, the City and consultant, in coordination with the Department of Land Conservation and Development, will draft proposed amendments to the City Municipal code, which will be overseen by a number of community stakeholders and an advisory committee which will convene at different times during the project to review draft code amendments and provide feedback to the City. The City will also host a public meeting in regards to the draft amendments. More information regarding the meeting dates and location will be post on this webpage once those have been established.
