Items Discussed Oregonian Coverage of West Linn Activity Martin Nixon, a journalist contributing to the Oregonian, stated that he is the Oregonian rep covering various topics in West Linn, including RN activity. Proposed Use of Land Across the Street from Burgerville Property owner, David O., discussed his proposal for a 12 residential unit (6, 2-story duplexes) and 8000 sq ft. office building plan. David considered the following to be key points of his plan: 1) Parking spaces will be hidden from the view of the road 2) Sidewalks will be added to 43 and Shady Hollow 3) Shady Hollow will be widened 4) Transportation study not yet done His plan requires zoning changes and revisions to the comprehensive plan. The audience presented the following concerns/ideas: 1) The proposed use is not consistent with the community concept 2) Keep the current zoning (R10) – this would allow for about 7 homes 3) Change the zoning to R5 The attendees voted on a motion to change the design to include only the commercial space on 43 (exclude the use of the remaining space for residential development) - results: For: 10 Against: 14 Abstain: 4 RNA Neighborhood Plan Development Update Streetwalker Kevin Bryck mentioned that a draft of the plan can be obtained from Gordon Howard at City Hall.
