Case File Nos.:
Community Development Code Amendment 002-14 and
Hillsboro Comprehensive Plan Amendment 004-14

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that two public hearings will be held before the Hillsboro Planning Commission at or shortly after 6:30 p.m., on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, in the auditorium of the Hillsboro Civic Center, 150 East Main Street, Hillsboro. At the hearing, the Planning Commission will consider proposed text and map amendments to the Hillsboro Comprehensive Plan (HCP) and text amendments to the Hillsboro Community Development Code (CDC) regarding South Hillsboro.

The proposed text and map amendments to the HCP are included within Section 31 to update Comprehensive Plan policies necessary to support long-term development in South Hillsboro. Section 32, currently the South Hillsboro Community Plan, will be updated and consolidated into Section 31 as an Appendix, containing background information and additional details in support of the Comprehensive Plan policies. The existing Section 32 will be deleted. Additional amendments are to Section 2, Urbanization policies and to the Comprehensive Plan Map. The procedures by which text and map amendments are processed can be found in the Hillsboro Comprehensive Plan, Ordinance No. 2793, Section 1.

The proposed text amendments to the CDC include an amendment to Section 12.24, to create a new Mixed Use zone for application in the Town and Village Centers, and a new Section 12.65 to create a Plan District governing development throughout South Hillsboro. The procedures by which text amendments are processed can be found in the Community Development Code, Sections 12.80.140 and 12.70.060.

The staff report on the proposed amendments will be available on Wednesday, September 17, 2014.  Staff reports and associated materials are available for inspection at no cost or copies can be provided at reasonable cost.  Materials can be reviewed from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays, excluding holidays, at the Hillsboro Planning Department, 150 East Main Street, 4th Floor, Hillsboro, Oregon  97123.  The Hillsboro Community Development Code and the Hillsboro Comprehensive Plan may also be viewed online at, or in the Planning Department office.

All interested persons are invited to attend this meeting and will be given an opportunity to be heard concerning the proposal.  Oral testimony should avoid repetition of issues, and should be based on the text amendments or the procedures listed above. ORS 197.763 provides that under certain circumstances, the record may remain open or a continuance may be granted upon the request of a participant. If you are unable to attend the hearing, you may submit a written statement to the Planning Department on or before the hearing date.  Comments may be mailed to the address noted above.  Telephone conversations cannot be accepted as testimony. Pursuant to ORS 197.763, failure to raise an issue at the final evidentiary hearing, or by close of the record, in person or by letter, or failure to provide sufficient specificity to afford the decision maker an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals based on that issue.
