This is a request from the City of Lake Oswego for text amendments to the Lake Oswego Community Development Code (CDC or City code), amending the standards for development of flag lots and private access lanes. The Planning Commission and City Council identified this as a 2017 Planning Commission Goal.

The purpose of the amendments is to streamline, update and clarify the code. This process is part of the City’s ongoing effort to implement the Comprehensive Plan (adopted in 2014), pursuant to City Council policies on preserving the character of existing established residential neighborhoods, maintaining clear and objective standards for development, and avoiding unnecessary restrictions on property owners.
