City Council Report for Feb. 18, 2016

On Feb. 18, the Wilsonville City Council conducted first readings and public hearings on a set of related ordinances for an annexation, comprehensive plan amendment and zone change for an 8.7-acre parcel, located on the southwest corner of SW Boones Ferry Road and SW Day Road. Previously approved by the City’s Development Review Board Panel B in January, applicant Universal Health Service, Inc. plans to construct a 62,000-square-foot behavioral-health treatment facility for a wide-range of patients, including veterans. The proposed approximately $20 million Willamette Valley Behavioral Health Facility kicks-off development of the long-planned Coffee Creek Industrial Area.

The Council held a public hearing and approved a system-wide 4.4 percent aggregate rate-increase for the City’s solid-waste and recycling franchise hauler, Republic Services, Inc., effective March 1. The applicant testified that the rate-change request was prompted by a number of factors, including an 8 percent increase in disposal costs brought about by the collapse in recycled-products market that had subsidized garbage-dumping costs; disposal costs account for 44 percent of all operating expenses by Republic Services. The applicant also cited depreciation costs related to construction of a new maintenance facility and conversion of the collection-truck fleet from diesel-gas fuel to CNG (compressed natural gas) increased. Acting on public comments from fixed-income and senior residents, the City Council modified the proposed rate request to reduce a proposed price increase of the smallest-size residential and commercial carts, lowering the rate to $20 per month. Council members indicated that the pricing structure also encourages a policy favoring a reduction in the production of household garbage. City staff research found that the solid-waste rates proposed for Wilsonville were in alignment with rates charged throughout the greater metro area.

The Council approved on a 4:0 vote with Mayor Knapp abstaining a resolution modifying the boundary of the Year 2000 Urban Renewal District and moving the proposed $7 million “Old Town Escape” road project from the Westside Urban Renewal District to the Year 2000 Urban Renewal District. The boundary change reduces the total acreage in the district in order to free-up acreage needed to create an urban renewal district in the Coffee Creek Industrial Area. The changes in urban renewal plans are consistent with the recommendations from Wilsonville Urban Renewal Strategic Plan adopted by City Council in October 2014 as recommended by a community task force.

The Council also authorized the Mayor to sign an Agreement of Understanding on behalf of the City Council regarding design changes to the Newberg-Dundee Bypass project designed to reduce excess traffic on Wilsonville Road. The agreement will be among the Oregon Department of Transportation, the City of Wilsonville, the City of Newberg, Clackamas County, Yamhill County, and the Ladd Hill Neighborhood Association.

Also during the meeting the Council approved City Attorney Barbara Jacobson’s employment contract with a standard one-year term. Mayor Tim Knapp shared with the Council a gift the City received from the Consular Office of Japan that recognizes the Wilsonville-Kitakata Sister City Relationship with Kitakata, Japan. Mayor Tim Knapp issued a “March for Meals” proclamation in order to recognize the City’s Home-Delivered Meals program, which the City has run for the past 31 years and that in 2015 provided a total of 5,894 meals to local area homebound seniors.

Under the consent agenda the Council authorized the Mayor to enter into a Local Agency Agreement with Oregon Department of Transportation that is required to use state and federal funds for the construction of the Kinsman Road extension between Barber and Boeckman, scheduled to begin this spring. The Council also approved a resolution that adds an Addendum to the 2004 Development Agreement for Villebois which clarifies cost sharing between the City and homebuilder, Polygon NW for certain infrastructure improvements needed to support the Villebois Grande Pointe residential subdivision located in the northwest portion of the Villebois neighborhood.

During the work session, prior to the regular meeting, the Council also heard a report on the LED light options being considered for installation along public roadways.
