Zoning Code Update Packet #135

Contents of Update Packet #135 (effective 10/21/09)

This Code update is the result of the Remand of the 2003 Northwest Plan District.

Code Update Packet: 135

Effective Date: October 21, 2009

Contact: Al Burns, 503-823-7832

Amends Chapters: 33.562

Substantive Changes:

The Northwest Plan District was established in 2001 and substantially amended in 2003. After multiple appeals the adopting ordinance for the first of two sets of 2003 amendments was remanded to the city based on a single assigned error — unexamined effects of traffic generated by plan map and zone map changes north of Northwest Pettygrove. Because this ordinance did not have a severability clause every provision adopted by this ordinance became invalid — including all of the first set of 2003 amendments to the plan district regulations. The second set of 2003 amendments was adopted by a separate ordinance that was sustained on appeal. In October 2009 City Council adopted again all the provisions 2003 ordinance that were affirmed, or went unchallenged, in the earlier appeals and restored Section 300 of the 2001 version of the plan district.
