This post is dedicated to @tovarichpeter, who has been consistently posting on the affordable housing subject even more than @Patrick has lately, I believe

The bill, which would also legalize fourplexes and cottage clusters in larger cities, cleared both House and Senate with wide, bipartisan majorities.

Oregon legislators took a historic leap toward greener, fairer, less expensive cities Sunday by passing the first law of its kind in the United States or Canada: A state-level legalization of so-called “missing middle” housing.

If signed by Gov. Kate Brown in the next month, House Bill 2001 will strike down local bans on duplexes for every low-density residential lot in all cities with more than 10,000 residents and all urban lots in the Portland metro area.

In cities of more than 25,000 and within the Portland metro area, the bill would further legalize triplexes, fourplexes, attached townhomes, and cottage clusters on some lots in all “areas zoned for residential use,” where only single-detached houses are currently allowed.

Or, as some more dramatic headlines have summarized it: The bill bans single-family zoning

THIS IS WHAT A STREET LOOKS LIKE 39 YEARS AFTER LEGALIZING FOURPLEXES
'Middle housing' means gradual evolution, not overnight transformation. Just walk down my street.
