NOTICE OF QUASI-JUDICIAL LAND USE HEARING
DOCKET # CPA1-09/ZC1-09
The Scappoose Planning Commission and City Council have scheduled Quasi-Judicial Public Hearings to consider an application submitted by St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union for a Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment (CPA1-09) and a Zone Change (ZC1-09) for property on the northwest corner of NW 1st Street and NW Laurel Street. The applicant seeks to amend the comprehensive plan map from General Residential to Commercial and to amend the zoning map from High Density Residential (A-1) to General Commercial (C) for a 0.45-acre area on two parcels. The parcels are currently dual-zoned, with portions zoned A-1 and C. The proposed map amendments would shift the existing plan & zone boundaries westward within the parcels to accommodate a larger commercial building site. The site is described as Columbia County Assessor Map No. 3212-BD-00800 & 3212-BD-00900.
The Planning Commission hearing is scheduled for Thursday, November 12, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Scappoose City Hall, located at 33568 East Columbia Avenue. The Planning Commission may make a recommendation to the City Council to approve, approve with conditions, or deny an application for a Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment and Zone Change in accordance with the criteria of the Scappoose Comprehensive Plan and Scappoose Development Code. Verbal and written testimony will be taken in regard to the request.
A subsequent hearing by the City Council is scheduled for Monday, November 16, 2009 at 7:00 PM in the City Hall Council Chambers.
The Planning Commission’s recommendation and City Council’s decision on the above public hearing items must be based on findings that a specific set of criteria have been or have not been met. Comments submitted in regard to the application should be directed toward those criteria that are generally as follows:
1. Applicable goals and policies of the Scappoose Comprehensive Plan.
2. Applicable sections of Title 17 (Land Use and Development) of the Scappoose Municipal Code, with particular emphasis on Chapters 17.22 (Amendments to the Title, Comprehensive Plan, and Maps), 17.56 (A-1, High Density Residential); 17.62 (C, General Commercial); and 17.162 (Procedures for Decision Making–Quasi-Judicial).
The decision-making criteria, application, and records concerning this matter are available in the Scappoose Community Development Center office at 52610 NE 1st Street, Scappoose, Oregon during working hours or by calling (503) 543-7184.

Columbia Avenue, Scappoose, Oregon, 97056 or fax comments to (503) 543-5679 by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 10, 2009.
