At this hearing, the Council will consider a request for annexation of two properties approximately 28.71 acres in size into the city limits of Hillsboro. The second hearing is for a City-initiated zone change on the subject property to apply the City’s I-S Industrial Sanctuary zone upon annexation.

The applicable criteria for an annexation are listed in Metro Code Chapter 3.09.045 and 3.09.050 and Section 12.80.010 of the Community Development Code (CDC). The applicable criteria for a zone change are listed in CDC Section 12.80.160. The CDC may be viewed online at or in the Planning Department office.

Annexation of the property would also include withdrawal from the following district: Washington County R.F.P.D. #2. The annexation staff report will be available on Friday, July 1, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. The zone change staff report will be available on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. The complete application, staff reports, 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 the public hearings 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.

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.
