Hal’s Construction LUBA Remand
On June 12, 2014, The Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved a Comprehensive Plan map change from Rural (R) to Rural Industrial (RI) and a corresponding zone change from Rural Residential Farm Forest, 5-acre (RRFF-5) to Rural Industrial (RI) for a portion of the subject properties that contains an existing construction and vehicle maintenance business. Subsequent to that approval, the decision was appealed to the Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA), identifying a total of 10 assignments of error. On November 20, 2014, LUBA issued a decision denying three of the 10 assignments of error (four, five, and six), and remanding all, or parts, of the remaining seven assignments of error to the County. A limited portion of LUBA’s decision was appealed to the Oregon Court of Appeals. On April 1, 2015, the Court affirmed LUBA’s decision to remand the decision to the County. Ooten v. Clackamas County, 270 Or. App. 214 (2015).

Case File #ZDO-259 would amend the Comprehensive Plan by adding the Monroe Neighborhood Street Design Plan to Appendix B and updating Table 5-3(a): 20-Year Capital Project list. Case file #ZDO-259 would also amend the County’s Active Transportation Plan by updating the Monroe Street route description and modifying the recommended Monroe Street facility improvements to be consistent with the Monroe Neighborhood Street Design Plan. Lastly, Case File #ZDO-259 include minor updates and clarification amendments to the county’s urban roadway cross sections: local, connector, collector and arterial roads. You are encouraged to review the draft Monroe Neighborhood Street Design Plan document and the associated draft Comprehensive Plan amendments, posted on the county’s Bikes and Pedestrians webpage.
