(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.

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.
