What is middle housing?
Middle housing refers to housing types that fill the gap between small apartments and detached single dwellings including duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, cottage clusters, and townhouses.

Get involved

Join us for the Middle Housing Project's first virtual open house Wed. Dec. 16 from 5:30-7:30pm. Please register for the event if you would like to attend. Learn about what to expect from the project and talk to City staff about your questions at this virtual event. You can learn more about the project on the middle housing page. Gresham's Middle Housing Project includes development code changes that will allow more choices in the types of housing city residents may live in during every phase of their lives. In 2019, the Oregon State legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2001 to help increase the amount and types of housing available to Oregonians. The bill requires Gresham to update the development code by June 30, 2022 to:

  • Allow duplexes on any lot that allows detached single dwellings; and
  • Allow all middle housing types in any area zoned to allow detached single dwellings.

These changes will create more opportunities for renters and homeownership across multiple price levels, and great variety in housing options for a wide range of household structures.
