LU 17-0078: Forest Highlands Neighorhood Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map Amendments

Project Description

A request from the Forest Highlands Neighborhood Association for amendments to the Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map. The amended Plan and Zoning Maps are intended match the development pattern of the neighborhood, allow a wider range of housing types, with increased densities along major transportation corridors, and maintain the city’s overall housing capacity as required by the State of Oregon and Metro. The proposal also reconciles conflicts between the Plan and Zoning Maps.
