Beaverton Notice of Adopted Amendment (2011-02-04)
MetadataShow full item record
This Quasi-Judicial Zoning Map Amendment (ZMA) changes the zoning of two properties within the City of Beaverton totaling 2.3 acres in size. Both properties were zoned Town Center - High Density Residential (TC-HDR) and now have changed to Town Center r- Multiple Use (TC-MU) where "utility substations" are recognized as a Conditional Use according to City Code. On these two properties, the applicant, Portland General Electric, proposes to construct a new electrical power substation. The applicant sought ZMA because the current zoning of TC-HDR did not permit utility substations. In reply to the Transportation Planning Rule, the applicant proposed a trip cap and provided analysis about site characteristics and minimum area necessary for uses under TC-MU known to have a higher ITE trip generation. In either zone (TC-HDR or TC-MU) residential is permitted; minimum and maximum density allowed in TC-M U is greater than that allowed in TC-HDR.
