The City of Bend is proposing amendments to the Bend Development Code (BDC) primarily for SB 458 which was passed by the Oregon Legislature in 2021. This law requires cities to allow middle housing developments to be subdivided into individual lots for homeownership opportunities. For example, a quadplex could be built on a lot and then split into four smaller lots, each containing one dwelling unit, by using an expedited land division procedure. The proposed amendments also include minor amendments for consistency and clarity.
The City of Bend will hold a “virtual” work session before the Planning Commission on Monday, April 25, 2022, at 5:30 pm. to review the proposed SB 458 Bend Development Code amendments.
You or anyone else may virtually attend the hearing. Attendance instructions will be on the meeting agenda which will be posted at https://www.bendoregon.gov/government/committees/planning-commission prior to the hearing.
