LU 14-0014B: Community Development Code (CDC) Annual Amendments

A request by the City of Lake Oswego for legislative amendments to the Community Development Code (CDC).

These amendments are intended to correct errors, eliminate text ambiguity or redundancy, and clarify text to reflect existing code interpretations. The process is part of the City’s ongoing effort to make the regulations more user-friendly for residents, developers, and staff.  Key amendments address solar panel height, front porches and street side yard setbacks in the R-6 zone, and the prohibition of invasive plant species in required landscaping and tree mitigation.
