NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
BEFORE THE CITY COUNCIL
(Legislative – LOC 50.07.003.16.e)

Hearing Date, Time, and Location:
Tuesday, March 17, 2015; 6:30 p.m.
City Council Chambers
380 A Avenue
Lake Oswego, OR  97034

File Number:     PP 14-0005 (Ordinance 2664)

Applicant:    City of Lake Oswego

Nature of Ordinance:
A request from the City of Lake Oswego for an amendment to Lake Oswego Code, Section 55.02 – Tree Removal.  A City Council goal from 2014 is to “Amend the tree code to more appropriately address large land parcels, both private and public, for forest management.”

Description of the Proposed Code Amendment:
The proposed amendment (Ordinance 2664) provides a permit process for tree removal and forest management activities on large tracts of land (at least one acre of forested land) consistent with the following objectives:
1. Maintain forest cover, consistent with the current Tree Code purpose [1], while minimizing the risk of catastrophic events such as wildfire, drought, infestations, storms/tree blow-down, and landslides.
2. Create a separate permitting process for forested properties of one acre or larger, leaving intact the existing Tree Code for residential lots and new development.
3. Provide for removal of a small number of trees with a simple, over-the-counter permit process that is scalable (e.g., based on forested acres) and uses objective criteria.
4. Allow for the removal of a greater number of trees (e.g., thinning) subject to approval of a forest management plan prepared by a qualified professional. Consider existing models for establishing tree stocking levels, such as the Oregon Forest Practices Act.
5. Encourage and assist owners of large forested tracts in managing their property, while providing safeguards for neighborhood character, protection of water quality, and erosion control.
6. Provide for public comment prior to approval of major forest management activities.

A copy of the recommended text amendments can be found on the City’s website:

http://www.ci.oswego.or.us/projects

(Under “Search” enter PP 14-0005, then press “Submit”)

The proposed amendment would be implemented through the adoption of Ordinance 2664, which will be considered at the public hearing.  The title of the ordinance is as follows:

Ordinance No. 2664

An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Lake Oswego amending LOC 55.02 to address forest management on large tracts of land, both private and public (PP 14-0005).
