If approved, tiny homes could help relieve rural housing shortages.

EUGENE: The Lane County Planning Commission will hold a work session and public hearing regarding proposed code amendments that would allow accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in rural residential zones on Tuesday, July 19th.

The code amendments would authorize ADUs on properties zoned Rural Residential that are at least two acres in size. The ADU building would have to be an accessory to a single-family dwelling on the property, as well as several other standards and conditions. This proposal also includes codifying an allowance to convert a historic single-family dwelling to an ADU when the single-family dwelling is replaced, subject to certain conditions.

The Planning Commission's recommendation and the proposed amendments will be considered for adoption by the Lane County Board of County Commissioners later this year. Officials say there will be additional opportunities for public comment before the county board.

The code amendments that will be discussed at the work session are available to review in person at the Lane County Public Works Customer Service Center (3050 N. Delta Highway, Eugene) or online at:

The work session and public hearing is set for Tuesday, July 19th. The work session begins at 6:00 p.m. The public hearing begins at 7:00 p.m. People can attend in-person at the Lane County Customer Service Center's Goodpasture Room (3050 N. Delta Highway, Eugene) or they can use the log-in link located on the meeting agenda to attend remotely.
