Hi Everyone – This is Cora.
This is 1 of 2 of Land Use cases that are active right now.
TriMet is now actively working on their Powell Garage improvements and have requested a Type II land-use adjustment for the required buffer area on the south end of the Powell Garage property. They would like to decrease a portion of the buffer from 25 feet in depth to 17 feet in depth to accommodate the overhang /rooflines of their reconstructed fueling and washing stations. To mitigate, they are proposing to add more intensive landscape screening that includes a berm that is between four and six feet in height.
Here’s a link to the land-use case document:
And here is a link to a draft response letter the Land Use committee is considering submitting:
