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, December 2, 2014; 7:00 p.m.
City Council Chambers
380 A Avenue
Lake Oswego, OR  97034

File Number:  LU 14-0053 (Ordinance 2658)

Applicant:    City of Lake Oswego

Nature of Application and Use or Uses Which Could be Authorized:
A request from the City of Lake Oswego for legislative amendments to the Community Development Code (CDC), Sections 50.05.010 and 50.07.004 to clarify and streamline its Sensitive Lands regulations with regard to utilities, fences, landscaping, lighting, map corrections, and delineation of Resource Conservation (RC) and Resource Protection (RP) Districts.

Description of the Proposed Legislative Amendments:
The Sensitive Lands program is a set of land use regulations that protect significant streams, wetlands, and tree groves. Currently the regulations apply to approximately ten percent of properties in the City of Lake Oswego. A City Council goal for 2014 is to “adopt changes to the Community Development Code to implement the reform of regulations on sensitive lands,” reducing the regulatory burden on private property owners. Toward that end, the City is proposing to replace the sensitive lands regulations in 2015 with a new Natural Resource Protection Program that more closely aligns City regulations with minimum requirements under State and Metro requirements. As the City continues to develop that program, the City Council has directed staff to prepare a series of interim Sensitive Lands code amendments for adoption in 2014. The purpose of the interim amendments is to address obvious problems with the existing code this year.

On November 17, 2014, the Planning Commission is scheduled to adopt findings recommending that the City Council approve the proposed amendments.  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 LU 14-0053, then press “Submit”)

The proposed amendments would be implemented through the adoption of Ordinance 2658, which will be considered at the public hearing.  The title of the ordinance is as follows:

An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Lake Oswego amending LOC Sections 50.05.010 and 50.07.004 to clarify and streamline sensitive lands regulations with regard to utilities, fences, landscaping, lighting, map corrections, and delineation of resource conservation (RC) and resource protection (RP) districts.
