On Monday, June 17, the City Council will hod a public hearing on the proposed update to the City's Transportation System Plan, on proposed amendments to Chapter 4 of the Comprehensive Plan relative to transportation, and on legislative text amendments to the Land Use and Development Code regarding transportation requirements.

 

On Monday, June 24, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on an application for the annexation of property at 1660 E Jefferson St.

 

On Monday, June 24, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on proposed legislative text amendments to the Land Use and Development to bring the Code into compliance with the statutory requirement that standards for residential development be clear and objective.

 

A Transportation System Plan (TSP) establishes a long-term vision for the future of the transportation system within the City, based on an analysis of current conditions, forecasts for future demands on the transportation system, the public's response to various alternatives proposed.  The City's current was adopted in 2004 is based on projections for growth that far exceeded what the City has experienced.

 

For the past year, the City has been working on an update -- gathering data, holding public information sessions, and analyzing alternatives.  Preparation of the updated TSP was guided by a Technical Advisory Committee made up of City staff, Marion County Public Works, Oregon Department of Transportation, and Oregon Department of Land Conservation & Development, and by a Citizen's Advisory Committee.  Three public open houses were held as the TSP was being developed.

 

As part of the adoption process there will also be updates to Chapter 4 of the City's Comprehensive Plan and proposed text amendments to the Land Use and Development Code.   The Planning Commission held their public hearing on the Draft TSP onMay 28.  Following the public hearing, the Planning Commission made some minor editing changes to the text of Chapter 4 of the Comprehensive Plan and forwarded the package to the City Council with a recommendation for adoption.  The City Council's public hearing is scheduled for Monday, June 17.

 

The draft  TSP can be found here.  The links below are for Volume II of the TSP, the Comprehensive Plan Amendment, and the proposed Land Use Code amendments.  Also provided are the technical memoranda that were produced during the development of the TSP and the Planning Commission's Order recommending adoption by the City Council with findings regarding the TSP, Comprehensive Plan Amendments, and Code Amendments.

Robert & Kay Pendleton have submitted an application for the City to annex the property at 1660 E Jefferson St.  The 1.4 acre property is currently developed with a single family dwelling.  No additional development activity is proposed.  

 

The Planning Commission public hearing will be held on Monday, June 24.  The application form, a map of the area to be annexed, and the applicant's narrative statement are provided below.  Also below are the staff report and draft order for consideration by the Planning Commission.  

 

The Planning Commission will be making a recommendation to the City Council who will hold their own public hearing and making a final decision on the application.  The City Council's public hearing is likely to be scheduled for July 15.

Recent changes to state law require the local governments may only apply "clear and objective" standards to residential development.  City staff has identified a number of current provisions in the Land Use and Development Code that may not meet the statutory requirement, in that they are subjective or vague.

 

The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Monday, June 24 on a set of amendments intended to bring the Code into compliance with the statutory requirement.  In summary, the proposed changes:

 

  • Require garages to have the same exterior materials as the house
  • Clarify the siding requirements for manufactured homes
  • Establish an defined slope above which the exposed material enclosing the underside of a manufactured home may exceed 12 inches on the downhill side
  • Modify the purposes of the multifamily standards remove subjective purposes
  • Clarify the multifamily standards for balconies and outdoor corridors
  • Specify a depth needed for an entry recess on multifamily dwellings
  • Clarify the siding requirements for multifamily dwellings
  • Remove reference to compatibility in the criteria for land divisions
  • Clarify the requirements for a send entrance for subdivisions or multifamily developments
  • Clarify the fish habitat protection standards.

 

A copy of the proposed amendments for the hearing, the staff report and the draft order for consideration by the Planning Commission are posted below.
