City Council Considers Easing Zoning Limits On Homeless Shelters

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland City Council members are considering easing up on some of the restrictions for where homeless shelters and outdoor camps can be set up.  The Planning and Sustainability Commission is holding hearings on proposals that would allow for temporary indoor and outdoor shelters to be set up in all zones of Portland for up to six months.  Another plan would allow for halfway houses and group homes to seek conditional permits under looser guidelines.
