Housing Choices: House Bills 2001

HB 2001 (2019) aims to provide Oregonians with more housing choices, especially housing choices more people can afford. The new law lets people build certain traditional housing types, like duplexes, in residential zones. These housing types already exist in most cities but were outlawed for decades in many neighborhoods.

Housing Supply: House Bill 2003

HB 2003 (2019) aims to improve local housing production strategies. The law requires medium and large cities to study the future housing needs of their residents and to develop strategies to make sure that housing is produced. The bill also directs the Oregon Housing and Community Services Department to look at what housing needs exist for the next 20 years in each region of the state and for all income levels, and to examine how those needs can be met.

Reporting for Housing

House Bill 4006 (2018) requires all cities with a population greater than 10,000 to report annually on housing production. DLCD provides an online portal for cities to use to comply with this reporting requirement. Additionally, House Bill 2003 (2019) requires all cities that are larger than 10,000 to complete a survey prior to the completion of a housing production strategy. More detailed information on reporting requirements and deadlines, as well as helpful resources, can be found on the Reporting for Housing page.
