ReCode Portland is the first rewriting of the City’s Land Use Code in over 40 years
ReCode Portland will create a new, unified development code to serve Portland for the 21st century. The new code will be more user-friendly, will advance the goals of the city’s new Comprehensive Plan, Portland’s Plan 2030, and be better equipped to meet the myriad needs of the city in such areas as housing, design, preservation, conservation, the working waterfront, energy, and transportation. What is ReCode Portland?
ReCode will be a multi-phased process. First steps include: creation of an Impact Fee system, new regulations for signs, and an organizational restructuring of the Code. Check back for updates on each of these projects as they unfold.
