NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
The City of Lake Oswego Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the City Council Chamber located in Lake Oswego City Hall at 380 A Avenue on Monday, September 12, 2011, 6:30 p.m.  The Commission will consider LU 11-0018, a request from the City of Lake Oswego for an amendment to the Lake Oswego Community Development Code (CDC) modifying the definition of “minor public facility.”

The definition of “minor public facility” currently excludes sewer, water, and storm water “trunk lines.”  By exclusion, trunk lines are “major public facilities”.  The amendment will include all sewer, water, and storm water pipes, including “trunk lines,” under the definition of “minor public facilities.”

A copy of the proposed amendments is on file in the Planning & Building Services Department 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 Andy Gulizia, Associate Planner, (503) 675-3732.  For additional information, visit the City’s website at:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

PORTLAND CITY COUNCIL AGENDA:

Proposed Changes to City Code Time Place and Manner Regulations of Alcohol Licensed Establishments
(PCC 14B.120)

What:   Portland City Council will hear presentation and testimony regarding proposed changes to local regulations of liquor licensed establishments.
When:    September 7th, 2011 – 2pm
Where:   City Hall – Council Chambers – 2nd Floor
1221 SW 4th Ave, Portland OR 97204
Why:
The Office of Neighborhood Involvement Liquor Licensing, overseen by Commissioner Amanda Fritz, will be proposing changes to the city code that allows local regulation of liquor licensed establishments. Enacted in 2004 as an avenue for neighbors and local enforcement agencies to address problem establishments, the Time Place and Manner code has been effective in addressing many livability and public safety issues that arise out of the sale of alcohol. The goal is to work with the licensee to address the issues before they become egregious.  However, there are several areas that the City’s authority is insufficient to address problems. The proposed changes will expand the authority slightly to allow:

Drug activity, prostitution, and incidents involving death or the risk of death to be considered nuisance activities for the purpose of this code
A violation and abatement process if three nuisance incidents occur in 60 days (rather than 30 days currently allowed)
A violation and abatement process in the event that a single serious incident occurs at an establishment

The proposed changes have been reviewed and supported by the Time Place and Manner Oversight Committee, which includes community and industry representation. Two public hearings were held in the summer of 2011 in which the City of Portland accepted both verbal and written feedback. Changes to the language were made based on the feedback received. Time Place and Manner is a reasonable process to a responsive licensee and has been effective in mitigating harm. These changes will help to better serve the communities of Portland, and ensure that licensed establishments do not act irresponsibly or negligently at the cost of the community. It will also allow the City of Portland to take intervening steps with a premise earlier and avoid more serious problems from occurring. This is the only avenue to address problems at licensed establishments at the local level. All other regulatory authority is held by the state Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

The proposed changes are viewable online at http://www.portlandonline.com/oni/index.cfm?c=32419&a=362076.
