This Bill was enacted in 2019 to create more affordable and diverse housing. In Oregon, more than 25% of households are single person, and housing options must grow to reflect that. HB 2001 requires all residential districts in medium-sized cities to allow for duplex housing and requires all large cities to allow for duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, cottage clusters, and townhouses to meet the housing needs of Oregon’s diverse population. Oregon sets minimum standards for each housing type in order to ensure that these needs are being met. The Bill also provides $3.5 million to local governments to improve infrastructure, which will allow for this development.
