Arnold Creek Neighborhood Association

Special Meeting

Tuesday, October 4

7:00-8:00 p.m. 

Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Hwy., Room 7

This meeting is regarding a proposed development at 10701 SW 25th.  The developer will discuss the proposal in detail and take comments and questions.  Please plan to come to this important meeting. 

 

Background

The owners of this 5 acre parcel just south of Maricara Park are proposing to subdivide the property to make 18 lots for single family homes.  A new public street will stem from the cul de sac on SW 25th and connect to the stub of SW 26th in Arnold Woods subdivision.

The zoning is R10 (residential 10,000 square feet) with an Ec (Environmental Conservation) overlay on the drainage area on the west.  City code allows some development in Ec Zones.

The preliminary site plan under discussion at this meeting is proposing to place all of the property which is under the Ec Zone into a separate tract and to develop the rest of the property as a Planned Development.  This means that some lots are smaller than would be allowed in a regular R10 subdivision and internal setbacks are reduced, but the Ec Zone would be undisturbed.

This property is close to the northern border of ACNA and it is very close to neighboring Marshall Park and Markham neighborhoods.

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.

LU 16-173207 EN NOTICE OF A TYPE II PROPOSAL

Site Address:  3222 SW Palatine Street

Proposal:   The applicant proposes to construct a 2,057 square-foot house, plus a driveway and patio area on this 22,380 square foot lot. To avoid excessive grading and tree removal in the site's environmental resource area, the applicant proposes to locate about half of the house and a third of the patio in the transition area of the environmental zone, which results in a proposed permanent disturbance to the resource area of approximately 1,425 square feet. Although four big leaf able trees will be removed, only two with diameters of 18 and 24 inches will be removed from the resource area. The site has steep slopes ranging between about 17 to almost 45 percent. The house will be located in the 17-23 percent slope area. The area along the western property line contains the steepest slopes and will be avoided. Written comment must be received by 5 pm on September 1, 2016.  See additional information online.

LU 16-179300 NOTICE OF A TYPE II DECISION

Site Address: 11660 SW Lancaster Rd

The Bureau of Development Services as approved a proposal in your neighborhood.  The reasons for the decision are included in the version located on the BDS website line above (http://www.portlandonline.com/bds/index/cfm?c+46429).

LU 16-179300 ZE NOTICE OF A TYPE II PROPOSAL

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.  

LU 15-178241 EN NOTICE OF A TYPE II PROPOSAL THIS PROPOSAL HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN BY THE DEVELOPER

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.
