MIDDLE HOUSING is coming our way.
"Middle housing includes anything up to quadplexes, rowhouses and so-called “cottage clusters,” which are four or more detached units per acre of up to 900 square feet each arranged around a common courtyard. In England they might be called “mews.”"
The legislature wants Albany and other Oregon cities to allow more housing, and different kinds of housing, to be built in the space available, which makes sense. But instead of easing up on Oregon’s insanely convoluted land-use laws, it has added new complications with House Bill 2001.
