BPS Releases Amended Proposed Draft for West Hayden Island

Document updates previous drafts

On April 9th, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) released the Amended Proposed Draft  for West Hayden Island at a Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) briefing. The document represents the third draft of proposals for the planning and annexation of West Hayden Island, in response to the City Council's resolution (No 36805).  In August 2012, BPS released the first draft proposal for PSC consideration. In November, 2012 a second draft was released, which responded to further input from the project Advisory Committee. The PSC held two public hearings in November 2012 and discussed the draft proposal in a number of work sessions in early 2013. 

This third draft responds to initial direction from the PSC and will be the subject of an additional hearing on May 7, with a work session and possible vote to be considered on May 28. Upon receipt of a recommendation from the PSC, the City Council may consider this proposal.

The hearing on May 7 is open to the public and testimony will be taken on the draft proposal. You can submit testimony to the PSC by emailing them at psc@portlandoregon.gov or by mailing a hard copy of your comments to PSC, 1900 SW 4th Ave., Suite 7100, Portland, OR 97201.

BPS Releases Updated/Revised Hayden Island Natural Resources Inventory and Economic, Social, Environmental and Energy Analysis

Documents are part of the Amended Proposed Draft for West Hayden Island

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) has updated drafts of the Hayden Island Natural Resources Inventory (NRI) and Economic, Social, Environmental and Energy (ESEE) Analysis. Both reports are part of the Amended Proposed Draft for West Hayden Island, which will be the subject of the May 7, 2013, Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) hearing. A PSC work session and possible vote on the proposal is scheduled for May 28.

The NRI includes information about the location, quantity and quality of natural resources on the island and a determination of significance for identified resources. The ESEE includes identification of conflicting uses, determination of the impact area, analysis of the ESEE consequences of allowing, limiting or prohibiting conflicting uses, and a recommendation for the circumstances under which development should be allowed or limited.

The NRI and ESEE are used to inform development of the West Hayden Island Plan District Zoning Code. The NRI, ESEE and environmental regulations are also components of the City’s compliance with Metro’s Title 13 - Nature in Neighborhoods.

To provide testimony on the NRI and ESEE to the PSC, email psc@portlandoregon.gov or mail a hard copy of your comments to PSC, 1900 SW 4th Ave., Suite 7100, Portland, OR 97201. To find out more about how to testify in front of the PSC, please visit the tips for testifying page.
