NOTICE OF APPLICATION
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 the City Council of the City of Beaverton will hold a public hearing to consider withdrawal of the territory described below. The City Council meeting will be held in the Council Chambers at the Beaverton City Hall located at 4755 SW Griffith Drive, Beaverton, Oregon. This withdrawal will be considered as part of the Council’s Agenda and is described as follows:
BARROWS/SCHOLLS ROW WITHDRAWAL
Withdrawal from the City of Beaverton of a portion of the SW Barrows Road and SW Scholls Ferry Road public right-of-way. The portion of right-of-way being withdrawn is generally described as the area between the existing southern right-of-way line and the centerline of the portion of the right-of-way of SW Barrows Road and SW Scholls Ferry Road. The proposed withdrawal area is bounded in the east by Creekside Drive and the power line corridor and extends westward to the existing western edge of the city boundary, as shown on the attached map. This proposal for withdrawal is being administered pursuant to ORS 222.460.
Pursuant to ORS 222.460(1), the Beaverton City Council must find “…that the public interest will be furthered by a withdrawal or detachment of territory from the city…”. The Beaverton City Council must also find that the application meets the criteria of Metro Code Section 3.09.050.
If the City Council favors withdrawal of the territory at the conclusion of the public hearing, the Council may conduct a second and final public hearing on August 9, 2011. At that public hearing the Council may consider implementation of the withdrawal via ordinance. If the Council determines at the conclusion of the July 12, 2011 public hearing that the public interest is not furthered by the proposed withdrawal, the Council may enter an order so declaring and no further consideration will be given. The final decision to favor or reject the proposed withdrawal will represent the City’s final land use decision appealable to LUBA.
You may review a copy of the staff report and all other documents related to this proposed withdrawal at the City’s Community Development Department Public Counter located on the second floor of City Hall. The staff report is also available on the City’s website at http://www.beavertonoregon.gov/departments/CDD/Development/DevelopmentProjects/. It will be complete by June 27, 2011. For further information you may contact Jana Fox at (503)526-3710 or by e-mail at jfox@BeavertonOregon.gov. Written testimony is acceptable if received by the City Council prior to the hearing. However, if written comments are not submitted to the Community Development Department by the end of the business day on July 12, 2011, at least ten copies must be provided for distribution at the hearing. Failure to raise an issue during the City Council hearing on the proposal, in person or by letter, accompanied by statements or evidence with sufficient specificity to afford the City Council an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals on that issue.
Dated this 22nd day of June, 2011
