In 2019, the State Legislature passed House Bill 2001, which requires large cities like Salem to essentially allow:
A duplex on any lot that is zoned for residential use that allows development of a single-family detached dwelling.
Up to four units in areas zoned for residential use that allows development of a single-family detached dwelling.
We plan to implement the bill's requirements as part of the Our Salem project . This work will include code changes that follow detailed rules that are being set by the State. We will provide more information on the State's rules when they are finalized.
We have until June 30, 2022 to implement the bill. If you have questions, contact Eunice Kim at [email protected].
