PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

ZMA 2010-0013 — R-3.5 ZONING MAP AMENDMENT TO R-5 or R-7 – SW Bruce Ave., South
Notice is hereby given that the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed Legislative Zoning Map Amendment on Wednesday, August 4, 2010, beginning at 6:30 p.m.  The hearing will be held in City Council Chambers, 1st Floor, Beaverton City Hall, 4755 SW Griffith Drive.  The hearing will be conducted in accordance with adopted rules of procedure identified in Chapter 50, Section 50.50. of the Development Code – the Type 4 procedure.
The City is initiating a series of Legislative Zoning Map Amendments (ZMA’s) to change the zoning of all properties zoned R-3.5 throughout the City.  The R-3.5 zone becomes obsolete following the effective date of City Council Ordinance No. 4542 which, in part, amends the City of Beaverton Development Code to remove the R-3.5 zone.  Through this specific ZMA proposal, all properties zoned R-3.5 on the south side of SW Bruce Avenue will change to one of two possible zones – City R-5 or City R-7.  Properties zoned 3.5 on the side of SW Bruce Avenue are generally located south of SW Allen Boulevard, north of SW Denney Road and east of SW Hall Boulevard.  Both replacement zones (R-5 and R-7) implement the Standard Density land use designation of City Comprehensive Plan applicable of these properties.
Specific criteria for Legislative Zoning Map Amendment are contained in Section 40.97.15.2.C of the Development Code.  Comprehensive Plan policies considered applicable include: Policy “c” under Goal 3.10.1 – Corridor; and Policy “a” under Goal 3.13.3 – Standard Density Residential; and Policy “b” under Goal 4.2.2.1 – Housing; and Policy “d” of Goal 6.2.4. – referring to the Transportation Planning Rule.
Documents and maps for this Legislative Zoning Map are available for review at the Beaverton Community Development Department, 2nd floor, Beaverton City Hall, 4755 SW Griffith Drive, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  In order to be addressed in the staff report, written comments on this proposal must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday July 28, 2010.  Mailed written comments can be sent to the Planning Division, PO Box 4755, Beaverton, OR 97076, or in person to the Planning Division, 2nd Floor, Beaverton City Hall, 4755 SW Griffith Drive.
Further information may be obtained by contacting Scott Whyte, Senior Planner, in the Development Services Division at 503-526-2652.  A staff report will be available for inspection at least seven (7) calendar days before the hearing. Copies of the staff report are available for a reasonable cost or are available for on-line viewing at www.ci.beaverton.or.us.
