LU 17-0053: Street Connectivity

Project Description

This is a request from the City of Lake Oswego for a text amendment to the Lake Oswego Community Development Code (CDC or City code), amending the Street Connectivity standard. The City Council identified this as a 2017 Goal for the Planning Commission to address.

The purpose of the amendment is to allow an exception to the Street Connectivity standard [LOC] that takes into account the nearly built-out nature of Lake Oswego and provides reasonable alternatives for complying with Metro Code Section 3.08.630.



At the Planning Commission meeting on 10/09/17, the Commission opened the public hearing and due to the lateness of the hour, immediately continued the hearing to the next meeting on 10/23/17.


To assist in the preparation of a public hearing draft on the proposed amendments to the Community Development Code the Planning Department accepted written comments August 21 until 5:00 p.m. on September 5.  Written comments received during this time were considered in preparing the draft to be considered at the Planning Commission public hearing scheduled for October 9, 2017.
