Accessory Dwellings

A one-stop source about accessory dwelling units, multigenerational homes, laneway houses, ADUs, granny flats, in-law units…

Looking ahead, how might Portland continue to support ADUs? Learn more and get involved!

Event Image June 29Will Portland start allowing two ADUs on residentially zoned lots (like Vancouver, BC)?  Will it relax size limits on internal ADUs, so long as the entire volume of the structure is no larger than a typical home?  If you have opinions about this, how can you get involved?

Join Portland for Everyone on Wed., July 27th to learn about:

– How space-efficient housing (including ADUs) can play a role in providing much-needed housing solutions for Portland
– The Residential Infill Project – currently underway – and P4E’s policy proposal
– How to voice your support for abundant, diverse, and affordable housing with city staff and Council

This is a free event, but space is limited.  Please follow this link to register.

Due to growing demand, limited supply, and outdated zoning codes, many Portland residents are unable to find affordable housing that serves their needs – and for many more, this has been the case for far too long. With over a thousand people a month moving to Portland, a trend that may result in the addition of 260,000 new residents by 2035, our city is at a crossroads.

2016-2017 presents a rare but short window of opportunity: Portland will be making critical land use and policy decisions over the next 18 months that will impact our city’s livability for decades. To ensure a Portland that is affordable and accessible for all residents, our civic leaders can and must do more.

Representatives from the Portland for Everyone campaign will present, followed by a Q&A and social hour for attendees. We are hosting this evening in the private room & bar at SE Hawthorne Lucky Lab, with sandwiches, salads, and bento available in the main restaurant. 

Doors/bar open: 5:30 pm
Presentation: 
6:00 pm by Eli Spevak
Q&A & Social Hour:
