As noted above, the House Bill was passed in 2019 by the Oregon Legislature and is now Oregon law. Changes to the language of HB 2001 can only be made by the Oregon Legislature. The City of Eugene must comply with HB 2001 and the newly adopted rules by June 30, 2022, or the state model code will apply directly. However, we recognize that people will have questions and concerns about implementation. As staff, we want to hear what you think – please reach out. We can help explain what things the City has control and choice over during implementation, and what things are predetermined by the house bill and new rules. See the fact sheets on the project webpage as well as the Guide to the Planning Commission Recommendation for more information on the scope and requirements of the bill and how Eugene is proposing to implement the bill. Additionally, community members can provide testimony by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
