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, July 28, 2014, 6:30 p.m.  The Commission will consider LU 14-0014B and LU 14-0018, a request from the City of Lake Oswego for the following citywide legislative amendments to the Community Development Code (CDC):
(Please note that staff will be recommending that the public hearing for LU 14-0014B be opened and immediately continued to August 25, 2014.  This is being done to allow adequate time for the Planning Commission to hold the hearing for LU 14-0018 and conduct a work session on revisions to the Sensitive Lands program.)
•Ordinance 2648, LU 14-0014B – Annual Code Updates:  These amendments are intended to correct errors, eliminate text ambiguity or redundancy, and clarify text to reflect existing code interpretations. The process is part of the City’s ongoing effort to make the regulations more user-friendly for residents, developers, and staff.  Key amendments address solar panel height; front porches and street side yard setbacks in the R-6 zone; the prohibition of invasive plant species in required landscaping and tree mitigation; clarify required bike parking should be covered; clarify that certain minor developments must be located within 100 feet from a collector or arterial street; and clarify how Park and Open Space land is identified.  The following code sections are affected:  LOC 50.04, Dimensional Table, Exceptions, Projections and Encroachments; LOC 50.05, Overlay and Design Districts; LOC 50.06, Development Standards.  Staff coordinator is Leslie Hamilton, Senior Planner, (503) 675-3731.

Ordinance 2644, LU 14-0018 – Nonconformities and Variances: These amendments update, streamline and simplify sections of the CDC that allow adjustments or variances to code standards and regulate nonconforming structures and uses. They are intended to make the code easier to understand and administer. Key changes include clarifying the code as it applies to all common types of nonconformities (structures, uses, lots, and site features); making the code more streamlined as it applies to conforming expansions of nonconforming commercial, multi-family, industrial, public, and institutional structures; and simplifying the existing procedures by which an applicant can vary or adjust standards in the CDC, by reducing the number of variance categories from nine to three and modifying the variance criteria. The following code sections are affected:  LOC 50.01.006, Nonconforming Structures; LOC 50.08, Adjustments, Alternatives and Variances; LOC 50.05.007, Lake Gove Village Center Overlay District; LOC 50.07, Review and Approval Procedures; and LOC 50.10.003, Definitions.  Staff coordinator is Jessica Numanoglu, (503) 635-0283.

Additional amendments are proposed.  A complete list of the proposed amendments and additional information can be found on the city’s website.

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 City of Lake Oswego Planning Commission will hold the following work sessions in the City Council Chamber located in Lake Oswego City Hall at 380 A Avenue:

Monday, July 14, 2014, at 6:30 p.m.

The Planning Commission will review and provide feedback on the first component of the City’s proposed Natural Resource Protection Program: the Water Quality Resource Areas (WQRA) overlay district. The WQRA overlay would replace existing Resource Protection (RP) Districts; it would regulate Title 3 resources (e.g., streams and wetlands) on public and private properties. The draft regulations are intended to be more flexible, where possible, and easier to use than the existing RP District standards.

Monday, July 28, 2014, at 6:30 p.m.

The Planning Commission will review and provide feedback on the second and third components of the City’s proposed Natural Resource Protection Program: the Habitat Protection Area (HPA) overlay district for public properties and private open space tracts, and the voluntary, incentive-based programs for other private properties. The HPA overlay would regulate Title 13 resources (i.e., wildlife habitat) on public properties and private open space tracts only; it would replace existing RC Districts on these properties. Regulations would not apply to Title 13 resources on private property; existing RC Districts would be removed, and the City would offer voluntary, incentive-based programs to engage the broader community in resource stewardship.

The Commission will accept public comments during the first 15 minutes of each work session.
