The Planning Commission will hold a hearing during its regular meeting on Monday, March 8th, beginning at 5:30 pm on a proposal to allow temporary housing in more areas. The proposed code amendments affect commercial zones, special planned districts, refinement plans, area plans, and master plans.
The code changes will make temporary housing a permitted use in the commercial limited and commercial general zones. Temporary housing would become a conditional use in the commercial limited (CL) district in NorthWest Crossing. In the Bend Central District, temporary housing would be permitted west of 3rd Street, but not east of 3rd.
The proposed amendments also remove the requirement that temporary housing facilities be separated by 1,000 feet.
See the attached notice for details on how to submit written comments or participate in the virtual meeting. The draft text of the code changes is also attached below. To access the City's web page for this project, click here.
