CASE FILE NO. DW-003-16:

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held before the Hillsboro City Council at or shortly after 7:00 p.m., on Tuesday, August 16, 2016, in the Shirley Huffman auditorium of the Hillsboro Civic Center, 150 E Main Street, Hillsboro. At this hearing, the City Council will consider withdrawal from the boundaries of certain districts for a portion of right-of-way along Tualatin Valley Highway, which was annexed into the City limits on October 5, 2015, as part of the associated right-of-way for a site totaling 422 acres in area (Case File No. AN-003-15). Upon further review, a portion of the right-of-way should also be withdrawn from the Washington County Enhanced Sheriff Patrol and the Washington County Urban Road Maintenance districts, which will be considered at this public hearing.

The subject right-of-way is a portion of SW Tualatin Valley Highway generally located approximately 145 feet east of its intersection with SW Cornelius Pass Road, and is a 325-foot portion of the right-of-way from west to east, adjacent to the northern property line of Tax Lot 2301 on Washington County Assessor’s Tax Map 1S2-11BD, and approximately 40 feet from the center line of the roadway. 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. The staff report on this subject will be available on Monday, August 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. Materials can be reviewed from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays, excluding holidays, in the Planning Department at the Hillsboro Civic Center, 150 E Main Street, Fourth Floor, Hillsboro, Oregon.

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. Please reference the Case File No. in all written correspondence. Telephone conversations cannot be accepted as testimony. 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.
