City Council Report for April 20, 2015

Wilsonville_Facebook_Profile_01.png

On April 20, 2015, the Wilsonville City Council approved a resolution to clarify that even though the one year moratorium on marijuana dispensaries expires on May 1, 2015, the City’s ordinance to prohibit the issuance of a business license to any business that is illegal under state or federal law will remain in effect. The City Council action effectively continues to prohibit any marijuana related business from obtaining a business license and operating within the Wilsonville City limits. Passage of this resolution clarifies the City will not issue a business license to medical marijuana dispensaries or other marijuana-related businesses within City limits since marijuana is under the jurisdiction of the federal Controlled Substances Act. The action by City Council was taken in order to maintain the status quo until the Oregon Legislative Assembly adopts rules or laws clarifying what cities are, or are not, allowed to do with respect to regulating operation of marijuana-related businesses within a city’s limits. In November 2014 Oregon voters passed Ballot Measure 91 to legalize the recreational use of marijuana starting on July 1, 2015; however, state rules that govern implementation on the local level are not yet available and so the City will revisit this issue once the rules are established.

During the meeting the City Council heard a report from Portland General Electric (PGE) staff about results of the “Green Power Challenge” — a City Council-approved initiative with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to increase the number of residential and business customers purchasing electricity from sustainable, renewable energy sources. Over the course of the two-month-long challenge, participation in “Green Power” programs by local residents and businesses has more than doubled adding a total of 507 new customers. Wilsonville’s current participation rate in the program of 15% of customers is both higher than the national average and PGE’s regional service area average.

At the meeting Mayor Tim Knapp issued a 2015 Earth Day Proclamation for Wednesday, April 22, in order to recognize the importance of protecting, conserving and restoring our natural resources including our air, water and natural habitats. This year is the 45th anniversary of the original Earth Day that began in 1970.

Under the Consent Agenda the City Council acknowledged the findings of The City Facility Master Plan, which inventories the City’s existing facilities, examines future space requirements and resources and develops a strategic plan for future facilities and property dispositions.

During work session prior to the City Council meeting, the Council heard reports and updates on plans to study use of light-emitting diode (LED) street lighting, Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Transition Plan, Facilities Master Plan and the Basalt Creek concept planning process.
