LU 15-0017: Amendments to the Community Development Code (Chapter 50) for the purpose of amending LOC sections 50.10.003.2, 50.01.006.5 and 50.04.003.2.b regarding how substandard lots (lots that do not meet the minimum lot size or other Code standards) are treated for development and lot line adjustment purposes. An amendment to the definition of “Lot” to clarify when development may occur on substandard lots. Amendments to other sections of the Community Development Code will add criteria for how development can occur on substandard lots and requirements regarding lot line adjustments involving substandard lots.
Amendments are proposed to the following code sections: LOC 50.01.006.5 Non-Conforming Lots; LOC 50.03.002 Residential Use Table; LOC 50.04.003.2.b General Exception to Lot Area and Dimension Requirements, Lot Line Adjustments; LOC 50.07.003 Review and Approval Procedures, and LOC 50.10.003 Definitions. Staff coordinator is Debra Andreades, Senior Planner, (503) 635-0292.
LU 15-0010: Amendments to the Community Development Code (Chapter 50) for the purpose of clarifying the definition of “duplex” (LOC 50.10.003.2); adding “multi-dwelling development” as a residential use (LOC 50.03.002), and adopting associated standards (LOC 50.06.001, 002, .003, .004); amending the Open Space requirement for multifamily and multi-dwelling development in the R-0 zone (LOC 50.06.005), and amending the Residential Use Table (LOC 50.03.002). Proposed amendments are regarding:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
BEFORE THE CITY COUNCIL
(Legislative – LOC 50.07.003.16.e)
Hearing Date, Time, and Location:
Tuesday, March 17, 2015; 6:30 p.m.
City Council Chambers
380 A Avenue
Lake Oswego, OR 97034
File Number: PP 14-0005 (Ordinance 2664)
Applicant: City of Lake Oswego
Nature of Ordinance:
A request from the City of Lake Oswego for an amendment to Lake Oswego Code, Section 55.02 – Tree Removal. A City Council goal from 2014 is to “Amend the tree code to more appropriately address large land parcels, both private and public, for forest management.”
Description of the Proposed Code Amendment:
The proposed amendment (Ordinance 2664) provides a permit process for tree removal and forest management activities on large tracts of land (at least one acre of forested land) consistent with the following objectives:
1. Maintain forest cover, consistent with the current Tree Code purpose , while minimizing the risk of catastrophic events such as wildfire, drought, infestations, storms/tree blow-down, and landslides.
2. Create a separate permitting process for forested properties of one acre or larger, leaving intact the existing Tree Code for residential lots and new development.
3. Provide for removal of a small number of trees with a simple, over-the-counter permit process that is scalable (e.g., based on forested acres) and uses objective criteria.
4. Allow for the removal of a greater number of trees (e.g., thinning) subject to approval of a forest management plan prepared by a qualified professional. Consider existing models for establishing tree stocking levels, such as the Oregon Forest Practices Act.
5. Encourage and assist owners of large forested tracts in managing their property, while providing safeguards for neighborhood character, protection of water quality, and erosion control.
6. Provide for public comment prior to approval of major forest management activities.
A copy of the recommended text amendments can be found on the City’s website:
(Under “Search” enter PP 14-0005, then press “Submit”)
The proposed amendment would be implemented through the adoption of Ordinance 2664, which will be considered at the public hearing. The title of the ordinance is as follows:
Ordinance No. 2664
An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Lake Oswego amending LOC 55.02 to address forest management on large tracts of land, both private and public (PP 14-0005).
