LU 12-0053: Designation of Resource Conservation (RC) and Resource Protection (RP) Districts

Project Description

The City of Lake Oswego is proposing to amend the Comprehensive Plan Map and Zoning Map to designate a Resource Conservation (RC) District and two Resource Protection (RP) Districts on the property located at 13150 Riverside Drive and the adjacent railroad right-of-way. The RC and RP Districts will be applied upon annexation of the subject properties.

RP and RC Districts are Sensitive Lands overlay districts; the RP District applies to stream corridors and wetlands, and the RC District applies to tree groves. The Community Development Code regulates development in or near RP and RC Districts in order to protect wildlife habitat and water quality.
