Brooks Resources held a required pre-application public meeting on Feb. 25th to present plans for two new office buildings. Shevlin Crossing will be located at the southeast corner of the roundabout at Shevlin Park Rd. and Crossing Drive. The following is a summary of the meeting:
Two office buildings are proposed on the 2.74-acre site, to be built in phases. The second building would be built if market demand is sufficient, within the five year limit for construction under the pending permit (i.e., by 2026).
The initial site concept was for a larger, three story building, but that has been revised to two two story buildings with a height of 36'. This is below the zoning limit of 55' feet for this CL (commercial limited) zone. The building style can be described as mid-century modern, with mass timber, glue laminated beams, and lots of glass. Based on the renderings, the designs looked quite attractive and at scale with the surroundings.
The buildings are designed to be public facing, oriented toward the roundabout and linked to crosswalks and walking paths. The buildings will include a coffee cafe accessible to the public and some outdoor seating space associated with the cafe.
Parking will exceed code requirements, but the developer is trying to balance parking needs with tree preservation. Preliminary plans show about eleven mature Ponderosas being preserved within the parking lot. As the site is below grade, the opportunity to preserve some trees, given planned final grade, has some limitations.
Two access points are planned, which was the City's preference, which requires them to stay away from the apex of the curve of Labiche Lane. Peak traffic from the project is projected to be 53 PM trips, mostly out, with 80% going to Shevlin Park Road and 9% to Crossing Drive. Traffic load analysis was conducted as part of the NWX master plan and no additional traffic mitigation is required.
An application to add a 792 s.f. Accessory Dwelling Unit at 3087 NW Kelly Hill Ct. has been approved following a Type I administrative review. See the attached notice for more details.
An application has been submitted for a whole-house short-term rental permit for a 3-bedroom home at 2498 NW Brickyard St.

The City Council will hold a hearing during its regular meeting on Wednesday, March 17th, beginning at 7:00 pm on a proposal to allow temporary housing in more areas. The proposed code amendments affect commercial zones, special planned districts, refinement plans, area plans, and master plans.
The code changes will make temporary housing a permitted use in the commercial limited and commercial general zones. Temporary housing would become a conditional use in the commercial limited (CL) district in NorthWest Crossing. In the Bend Central District, temporary housing would be permitted west of 3rd Street, but not east of 3rd.
The proposed amendments also remove the requirement that temporary housing facilities be separated by 1,000 feet.

UPDATE AS OF ARPIL 2021: The requested height variances have been approved.
Applications have been submitted for variances from the 30' height limit for six homes to be built in Marken Summit, a new 30-home subdivision that is mostly surrounded by the Valhalla Heights neighborhood across Mt. Washington Drive from COCC.
The proposed homes will be on lots 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, and 16, all of which slope uphill away from the street. The homes will be 3 stories tall, with average heights from 1.2' to 3.5' over the limit. The ridge lines of the roofs will be from 34' to over 39' above grade when looking from the front.
Please see the attached notice for one of the homes for details on submitting written comments, which are due by March 4th. An elevation for the home on lot 10 is also attached below, along with the developer's justification for the variance request. (To comment on all of the homes, be sure to include all of the project numbers listed below.)

The City has launched a new public interactive mapping tool called the Community Development Data Explorer (“The Explorer”). The Explorer can be used to perform common search functions, such as:
Training materials on the “Introduction” tab of The Explorer can help you learn how to use and navigate the map. Try locating your property and see what information is available, or search for planning applications submitted on neighboring properties in recent years.
The Explorer is a resource that was identified by the Neighborhood Leadership Alliance (NLA), an advisory committee to City Council, as an easier way for community members to learn about development and land use in Bend. To read the press release, click here.
