NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING BEFORE THE CITY COUNCIL (Legislative – LOC Hearing Date, Time, and Location: The Lake Oswego City Council will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at 5:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber, Third Floor, 380 A Avenue, Lake Oswego, OR, 97034, to consider the proposed amendments. This meeting will be conducted in-person at City Hall and an option for participating remotely via Zoom is also available.

File Number: LU 22-0004 (Ordinance 2893) Applicant: City of Lake Oswego Location of Property: South Shore Boulevard between Lakeview Blvd. and Blue Heron Road Nature of Application and Proposed Legislative Amendments: An ordinance amending Table 50.04.002-1 of the Community Development Code (CDC) to remove the Special Street Setback requirement from a section of public right-of-way on South Shore Boulevard between Lakeview Boulevard and Blue Heron Road. All other setbacks requirements are to remain. The purpose of the Special Street Setback (SSS) requirement is to assure an adequate space is available in the event of possible future street improvements, such as additional lanes, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, transit facilities, drainage management improvements, lighting, and street landscaping per LOC 50.04.002. The SSS along South Shore Boulevard is 40 feet (measured from the street centerline). Engineering staff has studied the section of street right-of-way (ROW) where the removal of the SSS requirement is proposed (South Shore Boulevard between Lakeview Blvd. and Blue Heron Road), and finds the existing 60-foot ROW can accommodate future pedestrian, transit, and bike improvements that may be planned for that segment of roadway. The Transportation System Plan (TSP) generally identifies an ultimate ROW width of between 60 feet and 80 feet for major collectors including South Shore Boulevard, depending on whether they include medians and on-street parking, neither of which exist or are planned for this segment of roadway. Therefore, the SSS of 40 feet is not necessary to assure an adequate front yard setback is available for future street improvements for that section of South Shore Boulevard. On April 11, 2022, the Planning Commission made their final recommendation that the City Council approve the proposed amendment. The record of the proceedings can be found on the City’s website at: (Under Search enter LU 22-0004, then press Enter) Amendments would be implemented through the adoption of Ordinance 2893, which will be considered at the public hearing.
