Further information may be obtained from the City of Tigard Planning Division (Staff contact: Gary Pagenstecher, Associate Planner) at 13125 SW Hall Blvd., Tigard, Oregon 97223, by calling 503-718-2434, or by e-mail to
(CPA) 2011-00001/ZONE CHANGE (ZON) 2011-00001
REQUEST:  The applicant is requesting a Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment and Zoning Map Amendment to change the Comprehensive Plan Designations and Zoning Map Classifications for a single 7.44-acre lot from Professional/Administrative Commercial (C-P) to Mixed-Use Employment (MUE).  The applicant proposes a zone change to accommodate a school use not permitted under the existing zoning.  LOCATION:  The property is located at 8200 SW Pfaffle Street.  The site is bounded by SW Pfaffle on the north, Hwy. 217 on the west, and Pacific Hwy. on the south; Washington County Tax Assessor’s Map 1S136CC, Tax Lot 100.  ZONES:  C-P: Professional/Administrative Commercial District. The C-P zoning district is designed to accommodate civic and business/professional services and compatible support services, e.g., convenience retail and personal services, restaurants, in close proximity to residential areas and major transportation facilities. Within the Tigard Triangle and Bull Mountain Road District, residential uses at a minimum density of 32 units/net acre, i.e., equivalent to the R-40 zoning district, are permitted in conjunction with a commercial development. Heliports, medical centers, religious institutions and utilities are permitted conditionally. Developments in the C-P zoning district are intended to serve as a buffer between residential areas and more-intensive commercial and industrial areas; and MUE: Mixed-Use Employment. The MUE zoning district is designed to apply to a majority of the land within the Tigard Triangle, a regional mixed-use employment district bounded by Pacific Highway (Hwy. 99), Highway 217 and I-5. This zoning district permits a wide range of uses including major retail goods and services, business/professional offices, civic uses and housing; the latter includes multi-family housing at a maximum density of 25 units/acre, equivalent to the R-25 zoning district. A wide range of uses, including but not limited to community recreation facilities, religious institutions, medical centers, schools, utilities and transit-related park-and-ride lots, are permitted conditionally. Although it is recognized that the automobile will accommodate the vast majority of trips to and within the Triangle, it is still important to (1) support alternative modes of transportation to the greatest extent possible; and (2) encourage a mix of uses to facilitate intradistrict pedestrian and transit trips even for those who drive. The zone may be applied elsewhere in the City through the legislative process.  COMPREHENSIVE PLAN DESIGNATION:  Professional/Administrative Commercial to Mixed-Use Employment.  APPLICABLE REVIEW CRITERIA:  Community Development Code Chapters 18.380, 18.390; Comprehensive Plan Goals: 1, Citizen Involvement; 2, Land Use Planning; 9, Economic Development; 10, Housing;  11, Public Facilities and Services; 12, Transportation; 13, Energy Conservation;  Same Statewide Planning Goals; Oregon State Transportation Planning Rule (TPR); and the Metro Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

Proposed Remedial Action for the Tigard Library Site

Proposed Remedial Action for the Tigard Library Site

COMMENTS DUE:  May 31, 5:00 PM

PROJECT LOCATION:  13500 SW Hall Boulevard, Tigard, OR

PROPOSAL:  As required by ORS 465.200, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) invites public comment on its proposed remedy for the site.

HIGHLIGHTS:  Early site investigations found elevated levels of arsenic in surface and near-surface soils.  This area of Tigard was historically used for orchards, and arsenic-based chemicals were typically used as pesticides and fungicides.  Data collected shows that soil erosion from upslope areas has transported soil contaminated with arsenic from the southwest portion of the site to lower elevation areas.  Soils with elevated concentrations of arsenic are mostly present beneath the library building and the Pinebrook Stream corridor along the southern side of the property, and in the original farm pond that is now used for stormwater detention.?

Investigations conducted between 2002 and 2008 identified three general areas on the Tigard library property where soil samples contained arsenic above DEQ risk-based screening levels: the North Field; the Parking and Pine Tree Area; and the Wetland/Wild Area.  Based on human health and ecological risk evaluations, these areas were found have arsenic concentrations that exceed one or more of the applicable Risk Based Concentrations (RBCs) for human exposure.  Ecological screening values were also exceeded in some site areas.

The selected remedies for areas of elevated arsenic involve preventing exposure through a combination of capping, fencing, and cover vegetation.  The Pine Tree and Parking lot area will be covered with a geotextile fabric and a 6-inch layer of mulch.  Access to the Wetland/Wild area and North Field areas will be restricted by installing fencing, and maintaining vegetation cover to discourage use.  If funding becomes available, the City of Tigard may excavate contaminated soil in the North Field Area, replace it with a minimum of 6 inches of clean fill, and re-sod with grass.  The covering of the North Field Area with a minimum of 6 inches of fill will be protective for public use, and allow the City of Tigard to remove the fencing in the North Field Area.  These engineering controls will be memorialized in a deed restriction recorded with the property deed, requiring that fences and mulch covers are regularly inspected and maintained.  If additional soil is removed from the site, a Contaminated Media Management Plan (CMMP) shall be submitted to DEQ for approval.  The CMMP will outline procedures for the safe excavation, management, and disposal of any arsenic-contaminated soil generated at the site.

DEQ welcomes the public’s comments on the proposed remedial actions.

HOW TO COMMENT:  To review project records, contact Dawn Weinberger at (503) 229-5425 and ask for records for Environmental Cleanup Site Information (ECSI) site #4063.  The DEQ Project Manager is Shawn Rapp (503-229-5614).  Written comments should be sent to Shawn Rapp at the Department of Environmental Quality, Northwest Region, 2020 SW 4th Avenue, Suite 400, Portland, OR 97201 and must be received no later than 5 pm on May 31, 2011.  A public meeting will be held to receive verbal comments if requested by 10 or more people, or by a group with a membership of 10 or more. Site information can also be found in DEQ’s on-line ECSI database at:, by searching on Site ID #4063.

THE NEXT STEP:  DEQ will consider all comments received and make a final decision after consideration of these comments.
