Two public hearings regarding annexation and zoning changes will highlight Canby's Oct. 3 City Council meeting. However, before the meeting starts, council members will gather to discuss the land use approval project. That work session will begin at 6 p.m. in the Willow Creek Conference Room.
The first hearing would allow 9.55 acres into the city limits consisting of three tax lots owned by the Cutsforth family for low density residential zoning. The city's Planning Commission has approved and recommended council members also vote for the annexation and zone change.
The second hearing regards a zone change of 2.49 acres at 1300 South Ivy Street from low density residential to residential/commercial. The request would align this property intended for future land use designation with the comprehensive plan and shown on the comprehensive plan land use plan map.
However, the Planning Commission recommended the application be denied by city council members. This candidate has concurrent development applications for approval of the proposed Canby Townhome project for the same property they are asking for the zone change. Planning commissioners raised about five concerns in the staff report to further review additional items of relevance from written testimony submitted at the Planning Commission hearing.
Council members also will vote on a resolution and three ordinances. The resolution will adopt amendment Number 3 to the cooperative intergovernmental agreement between Canby and the Clackamas County Library District and member cities. The ordinances include annexing 9.55 acres into the city and setting boundaries of the property to be included in the city limits.
A second ordinance amends the zoning map of Canby for Tax Lot 4800 of Tax Map 4-1E-04DA. The final ordinance is the second reading to authorize a contract between PBS Engineering & Environmental, Inc. for transportation engineering and technical services of North Quiet Zone improvements for North Elm, North Grant and North Ivy Streets.
Members also will discuss an amendment to employment contracts with the city's administrator, city attorney and municipal court judge.
Mayor Brian Hodson also will proclaim Oct. 10 as Walk and Bike to School Day and urging those in Canby to support Safe Routes to School. He also will issue a proclamation to make Oct. 5 Manufacturing Day in Canby.
