Young Park to the City’s northern limit with Lake Oswego via Mapleton Drive and Highway 43 (Clackamas County Assessor’s Map 2 1E 24AC tax lots 100, 200, 2900 and public right-of-way) in CUP-12-04/DR-12-14/MISC-12-10/WA-12-03/WR-12-01.
Conditional Use criteria are found in Chapter 60 of the West Linn Community Development Code (CDC). Criteria for Design Review are found in CDC Chapter 55. Parks Design Review criteria are in CDC Chapter 56. Flood Management Area criteria are in CDC Chapter 27.

The City Council will make its decision on the appeal based upon these criteria and these criteria only.

Oral testimony may be presented at the public hearing. At the public hearing, the City Council will receive a staff presentation, and invite both oral and written testimony. The City Council may continue the public hearing to another meeting (tentatively January 15) to obtain additional information, leave the record open for additional evidence, arguments, or testimony, or close the public hearing and take action on the application as provided by state law. Failure to raise an issue in person or by letter at some point prior to the close of the hearing, or failure to provide sufficient specificity to afford the decision maker an opportunity to respond to the issue, precludes an appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals based on that issue.
