The criteria applicable to this application are the following criteria and these criteria only: Community Development Code (CDC) Chapters 14, 32, 48, 85, and 99. The appeal of the Planning Commission’s decision on reconsideration is a limited public hearing. The City Council is only accepting testimony and argument at the appeal hearing that relates specifically to the scope of the reconsideration, which was limited to the topic of adequate public facilities including traffic impact and influences and pedestrian improvements and safety that are related to CDC 85.200(A). In addition, CDC 99.280(B) limits appeals of Planning Commission decisions to: 1) Those issues set forth in the request to appeal; and 2) The record of the proceedings as well as the oral and written arguments presented which are limited to those issues clearly and distinctly set forth in the notice of appeal. The appellant’s grounds for appeal are summarized as follows: 1) failure to address the timeframe for development; 2) the need for geological studies; 3) inadequate consideration of the impact of the proposed off-site mitigation on existing bike lanes on Willamette Drive; and 4) long term responsibility to address congestion, drainage, lighting, and related issues that may arise after the development is complete. The complete language of these appeal grounds is available at: http://westlinnoregon.gov/planning/ 18000-upper-midhill-drive-appeal-planning-commission-approval .
