PUBLIC NOTICE Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program Proposed Change in Use NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Beaverton (the City) is proposing to change the use of real property acquired with federal CDBG funds at 12350 SW 5th, Beaverton OR 97005 from a commercial property (Beaverton Community Center) which met the national objective of Low-Moderate Income – Limited Clientele. The proposed use meets the national objective of a Low-Moderate income housing activity, carried out for the purpose of providing or improving permanent residential structures which, upon completion, will be occupied by Low-Moderate income households, set forth in 24CFR 570.208(a)(3). This change of use requirement follows the provisions set forth in 24CFR 570.505(1) as the new use of the property will still qualify as meeting one of the national objectives in 24CFR 570.208. In an effort to help address the City’s affordable housing shortage, the City, with Metro Housing Bond funds, proposes to demolish the existing community center and construct 66-units of affordable housing, which will be limited to those with incomes at 60% AMI and lower, with 38 units being designated for those whose incomes are 30% or less of Area Median Income, with a focus on vulnerable seniors. Of these 38 units, 19 will be Project Based Vouchered units provided by Housing Authority of Washington County. The ground floor will remain a commercial space, which will serve a similar function, as the Beaverton Community Center. This project meets the City’s current goals of creating and preserving affordable rental housing as well as the goals set forth in its 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. Pursuant to the City’s Citizen Participation Plan, comments on the proposed change in use will be accepted by the City for 30 days from the publication of this notice.
