City Council Report for May 4, 2015

Wilsonville_Facebook_Profile_01.png

On May 4, 2015, the Wilsonville City Council held a public hearing and approved a Zone Map amendment as recommended by the Development Review Board (DRB) Panel A on April 13 for a 3.58-acre parcel near the center of the Villebois neighborhood for use as a neighborhood park, referred to as Montague Park, and for development of adjacent streets. The City Council’s action did not include consideration of whether or not to locate a pickleball/basketball court in the park, since DRB Panel A is scheduled to take testimony and make a decision on this matter at the board’s meeting on May 11.

The City Council also approved a resolution to phase-in an increase in land use and planning application review fees to allow the City to more fully cover the actual costs of reviewing and processing the applications. City policy requires that certain programs be self-supporting; the change is needed as the City’s Community Development Fund is running an annual deficit and requires more resources to cover actual expenditures. Land use and planning application review fees are to increase in a two-stage process: initially by eight percent starting on July 1, 2015, and then again on January 15, 2016, by 10 percent. The approved incremental fee increases, based on changes to the Consumer Price Index, were originally approved in 2007 but implementation was delayed due to the recession. Later this year the City plans to hire a consultant to study the health and sustainability of the Community Development Fund and examine whether other changes to the fee structure are needed.

The City Council also approved a supplement budget resolution to amend the adopted budget in order to authorize the City to make an overnight loan to the City’s Urban Renewal Agency. The approval recognizes both the expense of making the loan and the receipt of the funds from the Urban Renewal Agency to pay-off the loan.

Police Chief Jeff Smith presented to the Council the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) annual report. The City contracts with CCSO to provide law-enforcement services as a cost-effective way to provide public safety.

Council President Scott Starr issued a Drinking Water Week Proclamation for the week beginning on May 3 to recognize the important role that abundant and clean drinking water plays in maintaining Wilsonville’s high quality of life and the health of the community.

The City Council presented Mikala Hoffman, a fourth-grader at Boeckman Creek Primary School, an award for her “If I Were Mayor” essay and becomes Wilsonville’s entry into a statewide competition sponsored by the Oregon Mayors Association.

City Finance Director Susan Cole presented on the City’s award of a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association.

Eagle Scout candidate Dawson Durig, a freshman at Wilsonville High School, discussed his project at Pleasant View Cemetery where on Memorial Day, May 25, the 141 veterans interred there will each be honored with a medallion that he secured as well as having flag pole refurbished and adding a plaque at its base enscribing all of the veterans names. He was able to accomplish this with his scout troop through fundraising efforts and donations. In support of the project, Republic Services, Wilsonville’s waste hauler, presented a $1,000 donation to help cover costs of the project.

During work session prior to the City Council meeting, the Council heard other reports and updates on South Metro Area Regional Transit’s technology upgrade project, a report regarding a broadband economic-development meeting that staff attended, and proposed transportation projects in the Basalt Creek concept planning area located between Tualatin and Wilsonville.
