June 7, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
605-610PM: Update on 1103 SE Spokane: The City Adjustment Committee will hear an appeal of the land use decision Tuesday June 6. More information is at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/BDS/article/637707. Rocky Johnson and David Schoellhamer will summarize it.
610-615PM: Update on 1944 & 2006 SE Tacoma: This project is in design review, the design was presented at our May meeting, SMILE submitted comments, and there is ongoing discussion between the architect, the City, and SMILE. More information is athttp://smilesellwood.wpengine.com/currently-under-development/ .
615-625PM: Horizontal siding material: The community design standards limit its use but neighbors generally like it. The architect for 5434 SE Milwaukie found a loophole that allowed him to use it for a proposed development presented to the committee in May. We will discuss the loophole and whether we should recommend to the SMILE Board that SMILE requests a revision to the community design standards through the RICAP process.
625-705PM: Oregon House Bill 2007: A bill making its way through the State legislature would require changes to city zoning codes to increase housing supply. The most significant change for our neighborhood is likely that duplexes would be required to be allowed on all residential lots. This is potentially more significant than the proposed Residential Infill Project. More information is athttps://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2017R1/Measures/Overview/HB2007. We will review the bill and decide whether and what position the Committee should recommend the SMILE Board take.
705-715PM: Better Housing by Design: The City is starting the process of revising zoning code for multifamily zones. The Project held open houses June 1 & 3, we will summarize them. More information is at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/71903 .
