WHEN: July 9, 2013, 12:30 p.m.

WHERE: 1900 SW 4th Ave, Room 2500A

Background

In July 2010 the Portland City Council passed a resolution (No. 36805) directing the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) to develop a legislative proposal for the possible annexation of West Hayden Island to the city.

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 direction from the PSC as a result of the previous public hearings and work sessions.

About the West Hayden Island Project

In July 2010 the Portland City Council passed a resolution directing BPS to develop a legislative proposal for the possible annexation of West Hayden Island to the City. Because the island is valuable for both its marine industrial potential as well as wildlife habitat, Council specified that the proposal should incorporate a concept plan that designates at least 500 acres as open space and no more than 300 acres for future deep water marine terminal development. The City worked with the project’s advisory committee and the Planning and Sustainability Commission to prepare a draft plan based on this concept plan as part of the legislative package for City Council consideration.
