In May over 50 Sellwood-Moreland residents, SMILE, and the Sellwood-Moreland Business Alliance submitted testimony to City Council asking that the Sellwood-Moreland Main Street Design Guidelines be added to the zoning code. Thank you!! On June 3, Commissioner Mapps introduced an amendment (#3) to make some of the guidelines optional design standards in the Main Street overlay zone. Many residents and SMILE testified in support of the amendment which was subsequently adopted by Council. The zoning code changes will be effective August 1. All the supportive testimony clearly motivated Council to introduce and adopt the amendment. More information is at https://sellwood.org/doza/ .
