First Draft of the Oakland Development Code Completed for Initial Review

Lane Council of Governments staff, and Oakland Local Street Network and Oakland Code Assistance Project Lead, Jacob Callister, has completed and submitted the first draft of the Oakland Development Code. The "development code" accomplishes several important things:
  • Appropriately combines numerous Oakland regulatory "ordinances" relating development (Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Ordinance, Flood Protection Ordinance, Historic District Ordinance). 
  • Eliminates redundancies and contradictions between existing ordinances.   
  • Incorporates changes to street design standards and other transportation related developed and proposed through the Oakland Local Street Network Plan (2014).
  • Augments existing regulatory provisions with useful (and in many cases, missing) code provisions from a Model Code Developed for use in small cities.
The proposed development code will first be reviewed and evaluated by the "Project Management Team"  including Oakland staff, Mayor Keehley, ODOT, DLCD staff, and LCOG staff. After initial adjustments are made a 2nd draft will be presented to the Planning Commission, Historic Preservation Commission, and the City Council at a joint work session. This meeting will be held on Monday, August 15, 2016.

Public review will be possible through feedback on this site, to Mayor Keehley (beete@kehhley.com), Lead Staff Jacob Callister (jcallister@lcog.org), and at public meetings, including a public Open House in the Fall.
