Canby Council works through issues
Once the Oct. 17 Canby City Council meeting comes to order and the members hear a presentation by NW Natural Gas, there will be a public hearing regarding annexation and a zoning change.
The hearing is for 9.3 net acres at 1467 N Pine and 1575 N Pine on the west side of N Pine about 850 feet south of NE Territorial Road and about 150 feet north of NE 14th Avenue and extends west to border on N Oak Street.
ICON Construction and Development wants to build 40 single family homes with lots sizes of 7,000 square feet.
The parcel is surrounded by areas incorporated into Canby city limits and is consistent with the current Canby Comprehensive Plan design.
Council members also will decide on four resolutions and two ordinances, including the results of the public hearing if it's passed. The other ordinance is the second reading of an ordinance annexing 9.55 acres into the city and amending the zoning to R1 single family dwellings. The first resolution for passage is reducing street (tree) fees for a new development. The second is for a home on sale at 1751 N Redwood St.
The septic system at that home is failing and the owners have asked to hook into the city's sewer network, which is within 300 feet of that address.
The owners will pay for all city municipal sanitary sewer connection fees and monthly service fees following the recommended adoption.
Another resolution would result in an intergovernmental agreement asking Clackamas County to surrender jurisdiction to Canby of S. Fir Street between 13th Avenue and the current Canby City Limits and the end of S. Fir Street, a distance of 1,609 linear feet.
Under new business, council members will discuss the findings, conclusions and final orders for the Cutsforth property's annexation and zone change that passed at the last meeting. Members also will discuss the findings, conclusions and final order for the Busse development zone change that failed to pass.
