City Council Adopts Middle Housing Code Amendments 

On May 24, 2022, the City Council unanimously adopted Ordinance 20667 to implement the Middle Housing Code Amendments.

The City Council held a public hearing for the Middle Housing Code Amendments on April 18, 2022, followed by two work sessions on May 11, 2022 and May 18, 2022.  

The Middle Housing Code Amendments implement House Bill 2001, legislation that requires large cities in Oregon, including Eugene, to allow middle housing (duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, rowhouses, and cottage clusters) to be built in all neighborhoods. This legislation is intended to increase our housing supply and allow for more housing types of all shapes and sizes in more places.
