GPCOG Moderated Forum: How will Portland Ballot Question #2 impact Portland and the region?

posted on November 3rd, 2017

On November 7th, Portland voters will decide on Ballot Question #2: Strengthen Zoning Protection by Allowing Resident Participation in Proposed Zoning Changes.

The proposal would prevent a zone change from being enacted if 25% of residents living within 500 feet of a development site sign a document opposing the change. However, an applicant could move to appeal that decision by providing a document with signatures of more than 51% of residents living within 1,000 feet of the site within 45 days.
