Park Avenue Community Project (Development & Design Standards)

Park Avenue mapThe McLoughlin Area Plan Implementation Team (MAP-IT) and Clackamas County are working with the community to create updated land use development and design standards for commercial areas within ½ mile of the light rail station at Park Avenue and McLoughlin Boulevard in Oak Grove, just south of the city of Milwaukie. The purpose of the standards will be to support economic development in commercial areas, and protect and preserve surrounding residential areas.

The project is intended to provide an inclusive and innovative public engagement process, an assessment of neighborhood livability and economic vitality, and ultimately to revise development and design standards on commercial land around the Park Ave Light Rail station to support a more walkable, transit-oriented environment.

Park Ave Community Advisory Committee (PACAC)

The Park Ave Community Advisory Committee will work with consultants and the MAP Implementation Team, with the support of staff from Clackamas County and Metro, to lead an extensive and inclusive community-led public engagement process to refine community values, and create new development and design standards to support a walkable, transit-oriented area along and near McLoughlin Boulevard in unincorporated Clackamas County within one-half mile of the Park Avenue Light Rail Station. The committee will be made up of 18 project area residents, workers, property owners and business owners as well as people representing seniors, youth, schools and other diverse interests. While the majority of PACAC members have been selected, there are still openings for people who live in a multi-family complex or a manufactured home park, or who own a business, or who can represent the diverse racial and ethnic communities that attend Oak Grove Elementary School. If you qualify for one of those openings and are interested in applying to serve on the PACAC, or know someone who might be interested, please contact Karen Buehrig at Karenb@clackamas.us or 503-742-4683, or complete the application form.

Background

The project has two distinct phases:

Phase I: Community Engagement (Fall 2018 - Spring 2019)

Community assessment including researching community demographics and organizations, and policies, plans and development conditions. There was an assessment of the public’s understanding of the McLoughlin Area Plan (MAP) vision and related policy considerations, and an initial livability assessment, with a review of the potential impact of gentrification. Phase I also provided the opportunity to develop an extensive, innovative and inclusive public engagement process for Phase II. The results of Phase I are detailed in the three memos listed below.

Phase II: Development & Design Standards (Spring 2019 – Summer 2020)

Technical work and community engagement to present options to code refinements and develop anti-displacement strategies. An extensive and inclusive public engagement process will be employed to ensure all segments of the residential and business community have the opportunity to participate. The anticipated outcome is the development of code and map amendments for commercially-zoned areas, recommendations for implementation tools and community development, and anti-displacement strategies. Any proposed amendments to the county’s Zoning & Development Ordinance (ZDO) will be brought forward to the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners, with final adoption by the Board.

The project is funded by a Metro 2040 Planning Development Grant of $180,000, with matching in-kind services from Clackamas County of $45,000.
