LU 17-0053: Street Connectivity

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.
