NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Gladstone Zoning Code Amendments. On Tuesday, October 18, 2022, beginning no earlier than 6:30 p.m. the Gladstone Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the Gladstone City Hall Council Chambers, 18505 Portland Avenue, Gladstone, OR 97027 for file TXT-2022-03 to consider amendments pertaining to: Middle Housing Land Divisions and the removal of design standards specific to manufactured homes in Chapter 17 of the Gladstone Municipal Code. The City of Gladstone is abiding by guidelines set forth in House Bill 2560, which requires the governing body of the public body, to extent reasonably possible, to make all meetings accessible remotely through technological means and provide opportunity for members of general public to remotely submit oral and written testimony during meetings to extent in-person oral and written testimony is allowed. Therefore, this meeting will be open to the public both in person and virtually using the Zoom platform. Information will be available after October 11, 2022 on our website: City Council will hold a separate public hearing in November to consider the amendments recommended by the Planning Commission. In the Summer of 2022, the City of Gladstone initiated additional zoning code amendments, TXT-2022-03, to update Title 17 of the Municipal Code to address two recent state laws that impact land use and zoning regulations. House Bill 4064 (2022) requires local governments, including Gladstone, to treat manufactured homes and prefabricated dwellings the same as site built detached single household homes. The bill specifically requires that cities do not apply any applicable standard to a manufactured home that would not apply to a detached, site-built single household dwelling on the same land. Therefore, the design standards, setbacks, and accessory uses that apply to manufactured homes have to also apply to single household dwellings and vice versa. To be compliant with these state requirements, the zoning regulations that apply to the low density residential zoning districts (Chapters 17.12 and 17.10) have to be modified to: remove regulations that only apply to manufactured homes; and amend the design standards for the inclusion of items that are relevant to both traditional site-built and manufactured homes. Senate Bill 458 (2021) requires local governments, including Gladstone, to allow middle housing land divisions with an expedited land use review process. In addition to procedural guidelines, the state law provided review criteria for each application including evidence that the applicant has submitted building permits to develop middle housing on the property. The Planning Commission will consider the proposed amendments that respond to a few optional items that the city can follow. Adding the expedited land division process for middle housing land divisions to the Gladstone Municipal Code requires amendments to the following Chapters: 17.32 – Subdivision; 17.34 – Partitions; 17.64 – Design Standards for Land Divisions and Property Line Adjustments; 17.92 – Appeals; and 17.94 – Hearings. 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.
