The City held a Housing Virtual Open House on April 1, 2021 to discuss these concepts which is available to view here: https://vimeo.com/532340139.
Please take the time to complete a second survey in order to provide input and preferences on key strategies and actions the City can undertake to address housing issues. In addition, the City would also like feedback on zoning code concepts for duplexes and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). The survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/silvertonmiddlehousing2 should take about 10-15 minutes to complete and will close on April 16, 2021.
These zoning code amendments are necessary for the City to comply with recent state legislation (HB 2001) which requires cities to permit a range of housing types in addition to single-family detached homes. More information about HB 2001 can be found here: https://www.oregon.gov/lcd/UP/Pages/Housing-Choices.aspx.
