At this hearing, the City Council will consider withdrawal from the Urban Road Maintenance District and Enhanced Sheriff’s Patrol District for one property approximately 5.07 acres in size, and adjacent public right-of-way, which was annexed into the City limits on July 28, 2015 (Case File No. Annexation 002-15.)

The subject property is specifically identified as Tax Lot 100 on Washington County Assessor’s Tax Map 1S2-09CD along with adjacent right-of-way in SW River Road. The property owner is Clean Water Services, and the applicant is the City of Hillsboro.

The approval criteria for withdrawing property from a service district when that property has been incorporated or annexed into a city are listed in Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 222.524 and Metro Code Sections 3.09.045 and 3.09.050. The applicable criteria may be viewed online or in the Planning Department office.

On July 21, 2015, the City Council approved the annexation of one property approximately 5.07 acres in size into the City limits of Hillsboro, and withdrawal from certain service districts, which was effective July 28, 2015. Upon further review, the property should also be withdrawn from the Urban Road Maintenance District and Enhanced Sheriff’s Patrol District, which will be considered at this public hearing. The staff report on this subject will be available on Monday, February 1, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. The complete record, staff report, and all related criteria are available at the Hillsboro Planning Department for public inspection at no cost, and/or copies can be provided at reasonable cost.

All interested persons are invited to attend this meeting and will be given an opportunity to be heard concerning the proposal. Oral testimony will be taken in the following order: applicant; other proponents; opponents; and applicant’s rebuttal. Oral testimony should avoid repetition of issues, and should be based on the application or on the approval criteria listed above. ORS 197.763 provides that under certain circumstances, the record may remain open or a continuance may be granted upon the request of a participant. If you are unable to attend the hearing, you may submit a written statement to the Planning Director at 150 E Main Street, Hillsboro, Oregon 97123, on or before the hearing date.

Pursuant to ORS 197.763, failure to raise an issue at the final evidentiary hearing, or by close of the record, in person or by letter, or failure to provide sufficient specificity to afford the decision maker an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals based on that issue.
