CITY COUNCIL MEETING NOTICE

STEP 2 ANNEXATION
21 ACRES – GENERALLY LOCATED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF HIDDEN SPRINGS ROAD,
EAST OF ROSEMONT ROAD, AT THE SOUTH END OF SUNCREST DRIVE
FILE NO. ANX-08-01

The West Linn City Council, at its regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, February 23, 2009, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall (located at 22500 Salamo Road, West Linn, OR), will hold a meeting on a Step 2 annexation of an approximate 21 acre property generally located on the south side of Hidden Springs Road, east of Rosemont Road at the south end of Suncrest Drive.  The area is identified by Clackamas County as Tax Lots 21E23CD, lots 12300, 12301, 12500, 12700, and 12800.  A portion of the Rosemont Road right-of-way is also included in this annexation request.  The property owners, Palmer Erickson co-Trustee and the West Linn/Wilsonville School District, submitted a petition requesting that the City Council consider the annexation of the property.

The City of West Linn has established a two-step process for consideration of annexation requests.  Step 1 involves consideration of the land use aspects of the annexation request, and requires a public hearing.  The City Council approved the Step 1 annexation on January 26, 2009.  Step 2 involves consideration of other policy issues and referral of the annexation to the voters, which also requires a public hearing.  An annexation to the City is not effective unless it is approved by a majority vote among the City’s electorate.

During the Step 2 hearing, the City Council will hear testimony and receive evidence regarding whether the annexation should be referred to the voters, and, if so, the timing of the election.  If the Council approves the Step 2 portion of the annexation, they will set a date for the election.

At least 10 days prior to the City Council meeting, a copy of the staff report will be available for inspection at no cost.  For further information, please contact Chris Kerr, Senior Planner at West Linn City Hall, 22500 Salamo Road, #1000, West Linn, OR 97068 (phone:  503-723-2538) or via e-mail at ckerr@westlinnoregon.gov .
