PUBLIC NOTICE OF PROPOSED
WEST LINN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
CODE AMENDMENTS FOR
WILLAMETTE HISTORIC RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT
On March 8, 2010 at 6:30 PM, in the West Linn City Hall Council Chambers, (22500 Salamo Road, West Linn) the West Linn City Council will hold a public hearing regarding the adoption of an ordinance amending Chapter 25 of the West Linn Community Development Code (CDC) as contained within case file no. CDC-09-01. The West Linn Planning Commission recommended approval of these amendments on February 3, 2010.
The proposed amendments would accomplish the following objectives at minimum:
1. Revise the provisions of the CDC Chapter 25 to establish new residential standards for remodeling, additions and new home construction in the Willamette Historic Residential District.
2. Interior remodels will not be affected.
3. Accessory dwelling units will be more strictly regulated in terms of height, setbacks and orientation.
4. Emphasizing the “repair rather than replace” approach when dealing with home remodels.
West Linn has determined that adoption of this ordinance may affect the permissible uses of property in the Willamette Falls National Historic District, and may change the value of property. While the proposed amendments would not impact existing structures, and would allow existing structures to be rebuilt if destroyed or damaged, it may impact the future remodels, additions and the construction of new homes on property. It will not affect interior remodels.
File No. CDC-09-01 is available for inspection at the West Linn City Hall, 1st Floor Planning Department office, located at 22500 Salamo Road. A copy of the proposed code amendment and other materials in the file also is available for purchase.

Chance to Comment On…..
PROPOSED NO FURTHER ACTION DETERMINATION FOR OLD SHERWOOD CANNERY, 220 SE WILLAMETTE STREET, SHERWOOD, OREGON
Publication: Sherwood Gazette
Publishing Date: March 1, 2010
Comments Due: March 31, 2010
Project Location: 220 SE Willamette Street, Sherwood, Oregon.
Proposal: Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statute, ORS 465.230 and 465.320, and Oregon Administrative Rules, OAR 340-122-077, OAR 340-122-078 and OAR 340-122-100, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) invites public comment on its proposal to approve a no further action determination (NFA) for the Old Sherwood Cannery site in Sherwood, Oregon. This site is listed in DEQ’s Environmental Cleanup Site Information database as #4624.
Highlights: DEQ has reviewed reports that describe soil and groundwater investigations, underground storage tank (UST) decommissioning, soil removal and confirmation sampling completed at the 5.85-acre site. Several limited areas of contamination existed on the site – contaminated soils around the USTs, which were removed and remediated in 1997; polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contaminated soils from an area underneath the floor of a historic building (Building 3, since demolished); and contaminated sediments inside two historic concrete wastewater treatment units. In 1997 DEQ’s UST Program issued a no further action for the UST cleanup.
The City of Sherwood directed removal of 201.28 tons of contaminated sediments from the remnant wastewater treatment system cells in 2007, which were disposed at the Hillsboro Landfill. Between April to June of 2009, the City of Sherwood had another 108.06 tons of PCB-contaminated soils removed from the identified area under the former Building 3 structure and transported to the Hillsboro Landfill.
DEQ evaluated the residual concentrations of contaminants from post-removal soils and groundwater data from a Site Investigation performed in the summer of 2006 and compared them to applicable risk-based concentrations for residential and commercial land use. DEQ also evaluated the data to determine if the detected releases posed a threat to a nearby City of Sherwood public water supply well (Well #3), located approximately 200 feet from the site.
Based on the work completed DEQ has concluded that there is no unacceptable risk to human health or the environment and is prepared to issue a NFA for the Old Sherwood Cannery Site.
How to Comment: DEQ’s project file information is available for public review (by appointment) at DEQ’s Northwest Region Office, 2020 SW Fourth Avenue, Suite 400, Portland, Oregon, 97201.

Summaries of site information can be found on the internet in DEQ’s on-line Environmental Cleanup Site Information (ECSI) database (http://www.deq.state.or.us/wmc/ecsi/ecsiquery.htm). The Old Sherwood Cannery Site is listed as ECSI # 4624.
