Nature of Application and Use or Uses That Could be Authorized:
A request by the City of Lake Oswego for legislative amendments to sections in the Community Development Code (CDC) pertaining to Nonconforming Structures, and Adjustments, Alternatives and Variances intended to update, streamline and simplify these code sections so they are easier to understand and administer.

Description of the Proposed Legislative Amendments:
These amendments update, streamline and simplify sections of the Development Code that allow adjustments or variances to code standards and regulate nonconforming structures and uses. They are intended to make the code easier to understand and administer.  Key changes include clarifying the code as it applies to all common types of nonconformities (structures, uses, lots, and site features); making the code more streamlined as it applies to conforming expansions of nonconforming commercial, multi-family, industrial, public, and institutional structures; and simplifying the existing procedures by which an applicant can vary or adjust standards in the Development Code, by reducing the number of variance categories from nine to three and modifying the variance criteria.

The following code sections are affected:  LOC 50.01.006, Nonconforming Structures; LOC 50.08, Adjustments, Alternatives and Variances; LOC 50.05.007, Lake Gove Village Center Overlay District; and LOC 50.10.003, Definitions.  Additional amendments are proposed.  A complete list of the proposed amendments and additional information can be found on the City’s website.

On September 8, 2014, the Planning Commission recommended that the City Council approve the proposed amendments.  A copy of the recommended text amendments can be found on the City’s website:
