City Council Report for June 6, 2016

City-News-Logo.jpg

On June 6, the City Council held public hearings and approved on first reading an annexation, a Comprehensive Plan amendment and a Zone Map amendment for a 10.2 acre site on SW Garden Acres Road that is adjacent to and north of Republic Services’ campus located at 10295 SW Ridder Road in Wilsonville. The parcel is to be the future site of Republic Services’ proposed SORT Bio-Energy Facility that is designed to collect and convert commercial food waste into electricity and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The approval advances the City’s waste-hauling and disposal provider’s plans to expand their campus located in northwest Wilsonville. The Council action changed the zoning of the parcel from Washington County Future Development-20 (FD20) to a Planned Development Industrial-Regionally Significant Industrial Area (PDI-RSIA) Zone and changed the Comprehensive Plan designation from Washington County Future Development-20 (FD-20) to the Industrial designation. The development proposal was approved by the Development Review Board (DRB) Panel A on May 9 and a second reading of the land use applications is to be held at the City Council meeting on June 20. Construction of the bio-energy facility may begin later this year, but still also requires Republic Services to obtain a permit from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and a franchise agreement from Metro to begin the innovative new method of converting commercial food waste from the Portland-metro area into energy instead of being disposed of in landfills.

The City Council also held a second reading and adopted a Comprehensive Plan amendment and a Zone Map amendment for a proposed 14-lot residential subdivision located on 4.37 acres at 28500 and 28530 SW Canyon Creek Road South. The Council’s approval changed the zoning from Residential Agriculture-Holding (RA-H) to the Planned Development Residential-3 (PDR-3) Zone and changed the Comprehensive Plan designation from 0-1 to 4-5 dwelling units per acre. In addition to the 14 residential lots, the subdivision includes a public street, preservation of over two acres of Significant Resource Overlay Zone (SROZ) and a private park for the neighborhood. The development proposal was first approved by the Development Review Board (DRB) Panel B on April 25.

Under the Consent Agenda the Council approved a resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an addendum to the Frog Pond Area Plan Contract with Angelo Planning Group to continue the long-range planning work the consultant group is completing for the Frog Pond area.

During the Mayor’s Business portion of the meeting, the City Council approved the reappointment of two current committee members Kathleen Mason and Elaine Swyt to three-year terms on the Tourism Promotion Committee ending June 30, 2019.

The City Council also approved a set of proposed amendments to Wilsonville’s 2013 Transportation Systems Plan known collectively as the “2016 TSP Amendment.” The TSP is the City’s long-term policy and planning document for all types of transportation improvements, including road, bicycle, pedestrian and transit-related projects. The Plan also features higher priority projects that are planned to be implemented over a 20-year timeframe through the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP), development review processes and occasionally by other agencies.

During the Communications portion of the meeting, the City Council heard separate reports from the Washington County Visitors Association by CEO Carolyn McCormick and also a report on Wilsonville’s recent designation as a Bronze Level Walk Friendly Community by the national Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) based at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Prior to the regular meeting at the work session City Council heard reports and discussed the Declaration of Emergency Exercise; Water Treatment Plant Master Plan update; Wilsonville Road / Kinsman Road truck turning radius results; Ozone Coalition letter; and an update on the Basalt Creek Concept Plan.
