At the first hearing, the City Council will consider an application for annexation of property approximately 2.24 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 SFR-10 Single-Family Residential zone upon annexation.

The subject property can be specifically identified as Tax Lot 200 on Washington County Assessor’s Tax Map 1N3-36BA. The property owners and applicant are Robert & Jeneane Schulz.

The applicable criteria for an annexation are listed in Metro Code Chapters 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 its withdrawal from the following districts: Enhanced Sheriff Patrol, Urban Road Maintenance and Washington County R.F.P.D. #2. The annexation staff report will be available on Monday, August 1, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. The zone change staff report will be available on Tuesday, August 9, 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. 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.

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 statements or evidence sufficient 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.
