NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Gladstone Middle Housing Zoning Code Amendments, file TXT-2022-01.On Tuesday, April 19, 2022, beginning no earlier than 6:30 p.m. the Gladstone Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to consider amendments pertaining to: housing in Chapter 17 of the Gladstone Municipal Code. Per the Governor’s Executive Order 20-16, and House Bill 2560, regarding compliance with Oregon’s public meetings laws, the City of Gladstone is abiding by social distancing requirements during the coronavirus pandemic. This public hearing will be conducted virtually using the Zoom platform. The Zoom link to the public hearing and details on how to observe and testify online or by telephone will be available after April 12, 2021 on our website: City Council will hold a separate public hearing on May 10 to consider the amendments recommended by the Planning Commission. In the spring of 2021, the City of Gladstone initiated the Zoning Code Rewrite project (the project) to update Title 17 of the Municipal Code related to needed housing. This project is a critical opportunity to implement policies around improved housing choices in Gladstone, engage all community members including those who have traditionally been under-represented in the decision-making process, and align local policies and standards to the recently adopted Housing Bill 2001 (HB 2001). House Bill 2001 requires local governments, including cities within the Portland Metro Area with more than 1,000 residents, to allow duplexes on every lot currently zoned for residential use and allow additional middle housing types such as triplexes, fourplexes, townhomes, and cottage clusters in areas where infrastructure is sufficient. The bill also requires that local land use regulations do not cause unreasonable cost or delay in permitting middle housing. The bill defines Middle housing as duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhomes, and cottage clusters, although historically part of the housing stock of many communities, these housing types have recently been omitted from many local zoning regulations, particularly in areas zoned for single-family dwellings. These proposals are subject to Chapter 17.68, Amendments and Zone Changes and Chapter 17.94, Hearings, of Title 17 of the Gladstone Municipal Code and are available for inspection at Gladstone City Hall and at the Clackamas County Building Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City, Oregon, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. A copy of the proposal is available for a reasonable cost. For additional information, or for an electronic version of the proposed amendments, contact Tami Bannick at or 503-557-2769. Failure to raise an issue in a hearing, 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.
