When the Village Creek subdivision was approved by the City in 2001, the City Council imposed a number of conditions on the approval.

The links below provide the comments that were received from the Stayton Police Department and the Stayton Fire District. The staff report to the City Council and a draft order are also available.
The Planning Commission has initiated legislative amendments to amend the Land Use and Development Code. The Code currently allows Recreational Vehicle Parks and Campgrounds in the Interchange Development Zone and the Industrial Agriculture Zone. However the Code does not contain any design or operational standards that RV Parks or Campgrounds must meet. The Planning Commission is proposing the adoption of such standards. In addition, the amendments would change the definition of Recreational Vehicle, to allow such a unit be used as a residence.
The Planning Commission's public hearing will be held on Monday, January 28. Following the public hearing, the Planning Commission will vote on whether to forward the amendments to the City Council. The City Council will hold a second public hearing prior to voting on whether to enact the amendments.
In addition to the proposed Code amendments, the links below provide copies of various staff reports to the Planning Commission. A final staff report and draft order will be posted no later than January 23.
