Columbia Avenue, Scappoose, Oregon, 97056 or fax comments to (503) 543-5679 by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 12, 2009.

The City of Lake Oswego Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the City Council Chambers located in Lake Oswego City Hall at 380 A Avenue on Monday, August 10, 2009, at 6:30 p.m.  The Commission will consider LU 09-0004 (proposed ordinance 2543), a request from the City of Lake Oswego for amendments to Community Development Code, Article 50.06 (Residential- Low Density R-0, R-2, R-3, and R-5 Zones), Article 50.08 (Residential – Low Density R-7.5, R-10, and R-15 Zones), Article 50.13A (Public Functions Zone), and Article 50.69 (Conditional Use Standards) to amend the maximum lot coverage for schools.

In an effort to apply the code consistently for similar uses, the City is providing the following options for the Planning Commission to consider:
Option 1:
Increase the maximum allowed lot coverage for schools in residential zones to be similar to that allowed to public schools in the Public Functions (PF) zone, and amend the standards for conditional use approval of schools.
Option 2:
Reduce the maximum allowed lot coverage for public schools in the PF zone (LOC 50.13A.025) to be similar to what is allowed to schools in residential zones.
Option 3:
Remove all references to maximum allowed lot coverage for schools in both the PF zone and in all residential zones and rely on the Conditional Use standards per LOC 50.69.010 and 50.69.060 to guide site-specific development and ensure minimization of impact to the surrounding neighborhood.

A copy of the proposed amendments is on file in the Planning Division 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.

The staff coordinator is Johanna Hastay, Associate Planner, (503) 534-5740.  For additional information, visit the City’s Web site at:

Notice is hereby given that FEMA plans to assist the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) by providing partial funding to reconstruct and at times relocate six miles of a non-motorized recreation trail extending north from Gales Creek Campground in Washington County, Oregon.
