Environmental Services Projects in and around Arnold Creek

Boones Ferry Road Culvert Project

Environmental Services and its partners are working on a project to replace a culvert on Tryon Creek under Boones Ferry Road. The existing culvert blocks all upstream fish passage and is too small to allow adequate flow during wet weather.


SW Stephenson Roadside Swales

Environmental Services completed work in March 2016 on a stormwater management project on SW Stephenson Street between SW 35th Avenue and Boones Ferry Road. This project  helps protect water quality in Tryon Creek.


SW Terwilliger Boulevard Sewer Project

Environmental Services will begin construction this fall on 7,000 feet of eight-inch gravity sewer in Terwilliger Boulevard from SW Northgate Avenue to Highway 43.

Site Address: 11660 SW Lancaster Rd
Proposal: The Bureau of Development Services is initiating a Zoning Map Error Correction, at the property owner’s request, to modify the environmental conservation overlay zone on this site. The site was inventoried in the Southwest Hills Resource Protection Plan as Site No. 122, Arnold Creek, which identified natural resources and functions for protection. Identified resources in this Resource Area include Arnold Creek and tributaries, steep slopes and forests. Natural resource functions include groundwater recharge, wildlife habitat, fisheries, recreation and scenic. The Inventory identifies steep slopes and riparian forest on the subject site. The protection zone was to be applied to drainages flowing to Tryon Creek. The applicants provided evidence that a creek is located on their property, which is currently designated as an environmental conservation zone. 

The Arnold Creek neighborhood association may take a position on this application. They may also schedule an open meeting prior to making their recommendation to the Bureau of Development Services.  


Site Address: West of and adjacent to 10667 SW Lancaster Road 
Proposal: The applicant proposes to construct two single dwellings, one on each of two undeveloped adjacent lots within the environmental conservation overlay zone. Both of the forested lots are currently undeveloped. The site contains approximately 65,166 square feet with slopes of about 17 percent. The proposed combined construction disturbance area will be approximately 27,950 square feet and the permanent combined disturbance area will be approximately 11,170 square feet, including driveways. The houses are to be situated mid- slope to preserve a drainage that crosses the southeast corner of the site. A culvert will be installed at the stream crossing for the 10-foot wide common driveway. The stream is a tributary to Arnold Creek. 

The Arnold Creek neighborhood association may take a position on this application. They may also schedule an open meeting prior to making their recommendation to the Bureau of Development Services.
