City Council Report for November 16, 2015

On Nov. 16, 2015, the Wilsonville City Council approved an amended version of the Frog Pond Area Plan that establishes a conceptual vision for the mostly undeveloped 500-acre area surrounding the Frog Pond Grange on Stafford Road. After considerable discussion focused on public input around issues of transportation and housing density, the Council adopted the proposed concept plan by a vote of 3 to 1. The amended plan identifies the total number of proposed housing units of various lot sizes that potentially could be developed in the area, and also recognizes public feedback favoring residential lots of 4,000 square feet and over to be included in the future "east neighborhood." For more information about the Frog Pond Area Plan, including all related documents and information, visit www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/FrogPond.

The Council held a second reading and approved an ordinance that amends Chapter 10 of Wilsonville City Code to reduce the penalties for first violations of certain lesser offenses related to dog control, skateboarding and unauthorized camping on public property. Citations on these charges are reduced from criminal misdemeanors to civil infractions, along with lowering the maximum penalties and potential imprisonment that apply to these violations. The changes provide judges with more flexibility in sentencing and reduce overall court costs.

Under Mayor's business the Council acknowledged the retirement of long-term City Attorney Mike Kohlhoff and the six-month appointment of the Assistant City Attorney Barbara Jacobson as interim City Attorney effective Dec. 1. In addition, the Council recognized Economic Development Manager Kristin Retherford's election to President of the Oregon Economic Development Association and Transit Director Stephan Lashbrook's election to the Oregon Transit Association Board. The Council also recognized Fleet Manager Scott Simonton's receipt of the Annual Public Transportation System Innovation Award from the Oregon Transit Association. Finally the Council heard a report from Public Works Director Delora Kerber on the need for community members to help prevent localized flooding by clearing leaves neighborhood storm drains and an announcement about the upcoming Leaf Drop-Off Day on Saturday, Nov. 21, 9 am - 2 pm at the City Hall parking lot, 29799 SW Town Center Loop East in Wilsonville.

Under Consent Agenda the Council approved staff to obtain an appraisal and begin negotiations to acquire a 13.5-foot-wide strip of land along SW Parkway from the Xerox Corporation that is needed to widen the roadway according to the City's Transportation System Plan.

At work session prior to the City Council meeting, the Council heard updates and discussed a Transportation System Performance report, plans to establish the Coffee Creek Urban Renewal District, completion of a substantial amendment to the West Side Urban Renewal District, annexation of a parcel of land in the Villebois neighborhood and the Council's support to encourage Metro to establish Bridgeport Village as the southern terminus of the Southwest Corridor high-capacity transit planning project.
