HEARING OCTOBER 3 re agreement for city transportation, water and sewer related to the west side transect and city growth proposals
This post contains the Summit West Neighborhood Association review of Application PZ-18-0696 for consideration of a Development Agreement to provide Transportation, Water and Sewer Infrastructure to Support Development of Property on the North West Side of Bend.
The Westside Infrastructure Group, (WIG) made up of four property owners working to develop a set of large parcels on the West side of Bend who are proposing to enter into a development agreement with the City and the Bend/La Pine School district to provide necessary Transportation, Water and Sewer Infrastructure based on impacts of desired development densities within the City’s designated “West Area” and “Shevlin Area” Urban Growth Boundary Areas as well as within the County’s pending West Side Transect Zone.
This proposed agreement will be the subject of a Public Hearing Wednesday October 3, 2018 at the Bend Council Chambers at 7:00 pm, during the regular meeting of the Bend City Council.
The proposed agreement is an attempt by the parties to provide clarity on needed infrastructure improvements and the responsibility for provision of those improvements as the subject properties are developed over a 20-year time frame. The infrastructure needs are based on modeling and transportation impacts analysis at proposed density levels, which anticipate 870-967 new housing units in the West Side and 187 housing units in the County’s proposed Westside Transect Area as well as about 50,000 square feet of retail space and 110,000 square feet of office space.
The agreement relates only to the provision of infrastructure needs. Actual approval of development designs will follow with required Master Plan and Site Plan review requirements of the City and County. The agreement provides for the phased provision of the following transportation improvements:
The Summit West Neighborhood Association Land Use Committee finds that the basis and need for the Development Agreement is sound and useful as it provides a comprehensive look at the infrastructure needs and mitigation measures at the proposed densities for development in this region of Summit West and in areas adjacent that will impact Summit West. It also provides for the orderly provision of these infrastructure improvements.
At this writing, a City staff report was not available on this item and is expected to be posted within 7 days of the hearing, or on or about September 26 th .

PLANNING COMMISSION PUBLIC HEARING ON THE BEND COMPREHENSIVE PLAN REALIGNMENT PROJECT: AUGUST 27 5:30 PM CITY HALL
Project #: PZ-17-0433
On May 9 and 29, 2018, the SWNA board provided information about the City’s comprehensive plan realignment project. There will be a related public hearing before the Bend Planning Commission on August 27, 2018 from 5:30 to 11 PM at the City Hall Council Chambers.
WHAT IS THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND MAP?
The Comprehensive Plan (the Plan) guides land-use planning and development in Bend. The Plan was recently updated with the community-supported Urban Growth Boundary planning project in late 2016. The Plan includes maps, goals, policies and separate designations for residential, commercial, mixed-use, industrial, surface mining, and public facilities. The Plan describes the types of development expected in these areas. These land-use designations are shown on the Plan map.
All development within the City must be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.
Zoning districts implement the various Plan designations.
WHAT IS THE ZONING MAP?
The zoning map identifies zoning districts that implement the Plan designations referenced above. The Development Code details what uses are permissible in the different zoning districts. The Development Code allows development that is consistent with the Plan designations.
Generally, the Comprehensive Plan is the blueprint for how the community of Bend will grow. The zoning districts are the tools that ensure development is consistent with the Plan. As an example, the Plan identifies policies for multifamily development. The Plan map identifies where the multifamily projects will be located generally. The zoning districts and the Development Code provide the specific regulations such as allowable heights, parking requirements and other similar items with which specific multi-family development comply.
ACCORDING TO THE CITY, ALIGNING THE ZONING MAP WITH THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN MAP WILL:
SITE PLAN REVIEW FOR MEDICAL BUILDING IN NORTHWEST CROSSING
Project #: PZ-18-0491
Proposal: Type II Site Plan Review for a 3,360 square-foot medical building on a 0.27-acre lot in the ME (Mixed Employment) zone district
Contact: Brian Harrington, AICP, Associate Planner; 541-388-5543; firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for Comments: August 8, 2018
On May 21, 2018, the Summit West Neighborhood Association posted a City-issued land use notice for a June 4, 2018, public meeting for a multi-story building near a medical office area in Northwest Crossing.
Consistent with the City Development Code, the current project involves a Type II Site Plan Review for the same subject property and related use. The subject property is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of NW Clearwater Drive and NW York Drive (Tax Lot 701; no address is yet assigned). Comments are due by August 8.
Project #: PZ-18-0413
Location: 2777 & 2789 NW Lolo Dr in Northwest Crossing. The two parcels are between Snap Fitness and the self-storage facility on Lolo Dr, across the street from the Summit High School sports fields. They back onto Skyliner Rd and are across from homes in the Reserve at Broken Top.
Proposal: Taylor Development received approval in 2017 to develop two adjacent vacant lots on Lolo Dr with two light industrial buildings and a car wash. The industrial buildings are currently under construction. The developer is applying to change the use of the third building from a car wash to another industrial flex space.
Analysis: The proposed change should result in a less-intensive use of the property, in that there are likely to be fewer vehicle trips and less offsite impact from noise. On the other hand, full-time use as a light industrial space may require more parking; it was difficult to determine from the files on the city’s ePlans site whether additional parking is being proposed or would be required.
