The Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission adopted rules that include three ways or choices for cities to comply with House Bill 2001: a model code, minimum compliance standards, and a performance metric approach. The model code is a set of ready-made land use regulations that cities can directly apply; the minimum standards are, at minimum, actions that cities must take to comply with the house bill; and the performance metric requires that middle housing be allowed on a certain percentage of lots around the city and within census tracts. The new rules were adopted on December 9, 2020 and contain some prescriptive requirements (such as parking standards) as well as areas where cities have flexibility in implementation. Project staff completed 10 months of public engagement as outlined in the project’s Public Involvement Plan, resulting in Guiding Values and Principles and recommendations that Eugene’s implementation of the house bill go beyond the minimum standards required by the state. The recommendations were to encourage lower-cost and Affordable Housing , provide flexibility, and reduce parking regulations near transit.
