Applicable Standards and Criteria: Forest Grove Development Code Section 10.1.600 et. seq. (Quasi-Judicial Land Use Decisions). Forest Grove Development Code Section 10.2.150 et. seq. (Annexation) Forest Grove Development Code Section 10.2. 770 (Zoning Change Review Criteria): A. The zone change is consistent with the Comprehen- sive Plan Map. When the Comprehensive Plan has more than one implementing zone as shown on the Corresponding Table in Article 3, it must be shown that the proposed zone is the most appropriate, taking into consideration the purposes of each zone and the zoning pattern of surrounding land. B. The zone change is consistent with relevant goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan, as identified by the Director. C. The site is suitable for the proposed zone and there is a lack of appropriately designated alternative sites within the vicinity. The size of the vicinity will be determined on a case-by-case basis since the impacts of a proposed zone and its potential uses vary. The factors to be considered in determining suitability are parcel size and location. D. The zone change is consistent with the adopted Transportation System Plan. Development allowed by the zone change will not substantially impact the functional classification or operation of transportation facilities, or reduce the level of service of transportation facilities below the minimum acceptable level identified in the Transportation System Plan. To ensure proper review and mitigation, a traffic impact study may be required for the pro posed zone change if it may impact transportation facilities. E. Public facilities and services for water supply, sanitary waste disposal, stormwater disposal, and police and fire protection are capable of supporting the uses allowed by the zone. Adequacy of services is based on the projected service demands of the site and the ability of the public services to accommodate those demands. F. The establishment of a zone district is not subject to the meeting of conditions. Anna D. Ruggles, CMC, City Recorder City of Forest Grove Publish August 8, 2018. FGNT61566
