NOTICE OF BALLOT TITLE

NOTICE OF BALLOT TITLE
Notice is hereby given that the City of Happy Valley, Oregon, at its July 15, 2014 City Council Meeting, signed Resolution 14-16 calling for an election to submit to city voters the continuation of dedicated services and increase of a local option tax for public safety.  The ballot title will be as follows:

CAPTION:        FIVE YEAR POLICE SERVICES LOCAL OPTION TAX

QUESTION:    Shall Happy Valley levy a tax of $1.65 per thousand for police services for 5 years starting in 2015?

This measure may cause property taxes to increase more than three percent.

SUMMARY:    If passed, the measure would continue police and other public safety services in the City for five (5) more years, i.e., until June 30, 2020. The current levy for police services ends June 30, 2015.

The measure would increase the levy rate from $1.38 per $1,000.00 of assessed value to $1.65 per $1000.00 of assessed value generating approximately $3.1 million annually for police and related services; the expiring levy generates approximately $2.74 million for those services.

Passage will allow for:

* Maintaining 24/7 police services
* Increasing staffing levels to two (2) sworn uniformed officers per shift
* Provide  contingency fund  of 10% for emergency events; and
* Fund police services without additional general fund monies

For an average property in Happy Valley (with an assessed value of $300,000.00) the levy increases taxes for police services from $414.00 (under the current levy) to $495.00 under the proposed levy annually.

A no vote ends dedicated police protection within the City and results in only those services by the Sheriff available to unincorporated areas outside the Enhanced Law Enforcement District.

Any city elector dissatisfied with the ballot title may petition the Clackamas County Circuit Court seeking a different title and stating the reasons the title is insufficient, not concise, or unfair.  The petition must be filed not later than August 5, 2014 pursuant to ORS 250.296.

Please direct any questions regarding this Resolution to Marylee Walden, City Recorder.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The City of Lake Oswego Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the City Council Chamber located in Lake Oswego City Hall at 380 A Avenue on Monday, July 28, 2014, 6:30 p.m.  The Commission will consider LU 14-0014B and LU 14-0018, a request from the City of Lake Oswego for the following citywide legislative amendments to the Community Development Code (CDC):
(Please note that staff will be recommending that the public hearing for LU 14-0014B be opened and immediately continued to August 25, 2014.  This is being done to allow adequate time for the Planning Commission to hold the hearing for LU 14-0018 and conduct a work session on revisions to the Sensitive Lands program.)
•Ordinance 2648, LU 14-0014B – Annual Code Updates:  These amendments are intended to correct errors, eliminate text ambiguity or redundancy, and clarify text to reflect existing code interpretations. The process is part of the City’s ongoing effort to make the regulations more user-friendly for residents, developers, and staff.  Key amendments address solar panel height; front porches and street side yard setbacks in the R-6 zone; the prohibition of invasive plant species in required landscaping and tree mitigation; clarify required bike parking should be covered; clarify that certain minor developments must be located within 100 feet from a collector or arterial street; and clarify how Park and Open Space land is identified.  The following code sections are affected:  LOC 50.04, Dimensional Table, Exceptions, Projections and Encroachments; LOC 50.05, Overlay and Design Districts; LOC 50.06, Development Standards.  Staff coordinator is Leslie Hamilton, Senior Planner, (503) 675-3731.

Ordinance 2644, LU 14-0018 – Nonconformities and Variances: These amendments update, streamline and simplify sections of the CDC 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 CDC, 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; LOC 50.07, Review and Approval Procedures; and LOC 50.10.003, Definitions.  Staff coordinator is Jessica Numanoglu, (503) 635-0283.

Additional amendments are proposed.  A complete list of the proposed amendments and additional information can be found on the city’s website.

A copy of the proposed amendments is on file in the Planning & Building Services Department at City Hall.  Since the time allowed for public testimony is limited, you are urged to review the record and be thoroughly familiar with it if you plan to testify.

Information can also be obtained by visiting the City’s website at:
