Land within Eugene is divided into different areas called “zones.” These are intended to provide areas suitable for certain types of development or uses (examples include commercial, residential or industrial). Each zone provides a set of regulations governing the uses and development of a property within that zone, and includes such regulations as maximum building height or minimum building setbacks. To find out the zoning of a specific property in Eugene, use the City’s searchable zoning map. To learn more about what uses are allowed in a specific zone, you can check out Eugene’s land use code. While all middle housing types are currently allowed in Eugene, not all middle housing types are allowed in all residential areas and often times extra process steps are required to build it.
