Why are we updating the code?

The South Willamette Concept Plan was created to be an “actionable” plan. In other words, the community didn’t want a plan that would sit on a shelf and gather dust, but rather one that would give us real guidance towards achieving a vision. Updating current code regulations to match the vision is an important first step. If we don’t update the code, it will be impossible to realize the vision, for example creating a great pedestrian realm along South Willamette Street, or setting standards for new buildings of the right size and shape to meet the community’s expectations.
