Frog Pond West Master Plan and Appendices March 2017



The purpose of the Master Plan is to: establish the overall vision for the neighborhood; illustrate and define neighborhood specific plans and requirements for land use, streets, pedestrian connections, bike routes, parks, open spaces and natural resource areas; describe and illustrate the City’s expectations for high-quality architectural and community design; serve as the guide for coordinating individual developments and public realm improvements into a cohesive whole; and provide implementation strategies for land use regulation and infrastructure funding.

Building from the November 2015 adopted Frog Pond Area Plan, the Frog Pond West Master Plan and implementing amendments will build upon the vision established in the Area Plan for the Frog Pond West Neighborhood. The amendments include:

  • Amendment to the Comprehensive Plan Map to add the ‘Residential Neighborhood’ and Public Facilities’ designations.
  • Amendments to the text of the Wilsonville Comprehensive Plan to implement the Frog Pond West Master Plan.
  • Amendment to the Significant Resource Overlay Zone (SROZ) Map to incorporate the Willow Creek drainage.
  • Adoption of the Frog Pond West Master Plan as a supporting document of the Comprehensive Plan.
  • Amendments to the Wilsonville Planning and Land Development Ordinance (Development Code) creating the Residential Neighborhood (RN) Zone as well as supporting amendments to the text of the Code incorporating the new RN zone.

Frog Pond Master Plan Open Houses

The City of Wilsonville hosted Open Houses on September 14, 2016 and May 11, 2016 to highlight the Frog Pond Master Plan. The events were an opportunity to view drawings, talk with the project team and staff, and provide feedback.  City of Wilsonville Community Development Staff,  Committee for Citizen Involvement (CCI) Members, and consultant project team members were onsite as informational resources.

The public can review project boards (these are large documents which may be slow to load) as such:

May 11, 2016 Open House Event
Draft project boards included working ideas for Area Plans, Land Use, Parks and Open Space, and Transportation and were available for review, comments and questions.  The consultant team provided opportunity for public comment both in written and electronic formats.

Final Frog Pond Area Plan and Technical Appendices
 

The Frog Pond Area Plan, led by the City of Wilsonville established a vision for the 500-acre Frog Pond area, and defined expectations for the type of community it will be in the future. During this visioning process, the Frog Pond project team received citizen feedback and direction from both the Planning Commission and City Council. 

As a result, we are pleased to present the Final Frog Pond Area Plan and Technical Appendices as were approved by the Wilsonville City Council on November 16, 2015.


On November 16, 2015, the Wilsonville City Council held a regular meeting wherein Resolution 2533 was reviewed and approved.  Resolution 2533 is a resolution of the City of Wilsonville adopting the Frog Pond Area Plan, establishing a vision for the 500-acre Frog Pond Area, defining expectations for the type of community it will be in the future, and recommending implementation steps.
