Proposed changes available for review

The Residential Districts Review project is proposing Development Plan Map and Development Code changes. The latest map (and other information) is available at

New changes

A staff report describing the changes and a "council bill" that details how the code will change will be available on the site by early next week.

The map and code changes will:

  • Create two new land use districts, Low-Density Residential-7, which has a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet, and TR, which allows a mix of single-family residential, duplexes on corner lots, and townhomes and is intended as a transition between more intense uses and less intense uses.
  • Eliminate the Perimeter Lot Size Compatibility Standard (Article 6.0212 in the Development Code). The standard now requires perimeter lots in some new developments to be similar to adjacent existing lots. This provision would be eliminated because similar lots are achieved through the application of the LDR-7 district.
  • Provide other minor text changes to improve or clarify the code as it related to standards for the residential districts.

Public hearing

The map and code changes will be discussed at a Planning Commission public hearing Nov. 10 in the Council Chambers at Gresham City Hall, 1333 N.W. Eastman Parkway.
