News Release
Planning Commission holds public hearing on rural accessory dwelling units - 06/29/22

The Lane County Planning Commission is conducting a work session and public hearing regarding proposed code amendments that would allow accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in rural residential zones. 

 

The work session and public hearing is Tuesday, July 19. The work session begins at 6:00 p.m. The public hearing begins at 7:00 p.m. People can attend in-person at the Lane County Customer Service Center’s Goodpasture Room (3050 N. Delta Highway, Eugene) or they can use the log-in link located on the meeting agenda to attend remotely

 

The code amendments authorize ADUs on properties zoned Rural Residential and at least two acres in size. The ADU must be accessory to a single family dwelling on the property, as well as several other standards and conditions. This project also includes codifying an allowance to convert an historic single-family dwelling to an ADU when the single-family dwelling is replaced, subject to certain conditions.

 

The Planning Commission’s recommendation and the proposed amendments will be considered for adoption by the Board of County Commissioners later this year. There will be additional opportunities for public comment before the Board of County Commissioners. 

 

The code amendments that will be discussed at the work session are available to review in person at the Lane County Public Works Customer Service Center (3050 N. Delta Highway, Eugene) or online here.
