PDX Design Zones will shape your city!

The City of Portland is introducing new regulations for design overlay zones (areas throughout the city, including Central City, Gateway, St. Johns, MLK/Alberta, SE Division, 122nd, Hillsdale, and many more places). Design Overlay Zone Amendments (DOZA) will affect: • Types of Development and Areas that are in the overlay • Design Review process • Design Guidelines and Design Standards • And much more!

We are in the “discussion draft” phase, so we are asking the public if we got it right, what is missing, or what ideas need to be developed further. New guidelines and standards have been concept-tested by architects. Come fly-through their drawings and understand what changes will potentially look like! Give us your feedback about design of the built environment in your neighborhood!
