This bill requires the Department of Land Conservation and Development to develop model ordinances or land use regulations for cities of different sizes to implement housing and urbanization requirements. Appropriates moneys to the department for purposes of the Act.
The severe housing shortage that exists in Oregon today was created overtime by status-quo policies that have handcuffed cities, overregulated builders, and stifled development. The reforms in this bill will free up land to invest in housing of all types in all communities, not just Portland, and not just for low-income.
The three models model ordinances or land use regulations developed under this bill are:
(A) One must be targeted toward cities with a population of less than 2,500;
(B) One must be targeted toward cities with a population of 2,500 or greater and less than 25,000; and
(C) One must be targeted toward cities with a population of 25,000 or greater.
