Any changes to permitted land uses may reduce or increase property values, depending on various factors. A written notice has been mailed to potentially impacted properties owners, as required by law. The hearings will take place at Wilsonville City Hall, 29799 SW Town Center Loop East, Wilsonville, Oregon.

Summary of Proposal: The proposal updates zoning standards controlling how and where residential buildings and other improvements can be built. The proposed updates pertain primarily to the City’s seven Planned Development Residential (PDR) Zones. The proposed updated standards are most applicable to about 63 acres of unbuilt and underbuilt land within the City limits. The proposed updates will not apply to the Frog Pond residential area (Residential Neighborhood Zone) or Villebois residential areas (Village Zone) as these areas are not in PDR zones. The proposed updates also do not apply to existing neighborhoods, including those within PDR zones, unless a neighborhood is rebuilt on a large scale. The proposal addresses issues raised over the years of applying the zoning standards to the building of neighborhoods. The proposal focuses on clarifying how many housing units can be built on a given amount of land, clarifying the size of individual properties or lots and related standards, and clarifying the amount of parks, natural areas, and similar open spaces in neighborhoods. The proposal seeks to mirror the recently adopted standards for Frog Pond West (Residential Neighborhood Zone). How to Comment Oral or written testimony may be presented at the public hearing. Written comment on the proposal to be submitted into the public hearing record is welcome prior to the public hearings.
