Can I create an additional house or dwelling on my property?

The answer to this question is based on the zone a property is located in. For example, if a property is located in Low Density Residential (R-1), a secondary dwelling unit may be permitted as long as it meet zoning code standards. For general questions about our current requirements, you can email the Planner-On-Duty or call 541-682-5377. For information on additional dwellings in other zones see the Multifamily Permits page.
