Beavercreek Road Concept Plan Meeting 2
Mark your calendars! Join us on Tuesday, April 9th, 2019 from 7-8:30 pm at the Oregon City High School Library to participate in the Beavercreek Road Concept Plan (BRCP) Code Update process!

The City of Oregon City has been working on a process to amend the Oregon City Municipal Code and City Zoning Maps and to allow planned housing, employment and mixed-use development within the Beavercreek Road Concept Plan (BRCP).

At the meeting, participants will review proposed changes to the Oregon City code and land use maps that will provide proposed zoning for the plan area. The agenda and meeting details will be posted one week before the meeting.

If you cannot make this meeting, there will be several other opportunities for you to participate in the Beavercreek Road Code Update process before the formal public hearings begin later this year. An open house is scheduled for June 10, 2019, and public work sessions are tentatively scheduled with the Planning Commission on May 13, 2019, and City Commission on June 11, 2019.  You can also send staff your comments via email (crobertson@orcity.org) or mail (City of Oregon City c/o Christina Robertson-Gardiner | PO Box 3040| Oregon City, OR 97045) throughout this process.

Public Comment Tracker 
We will share what we have heard to date from public comments and meeting with various organizations through a comment tracker. A copy of the latest version of the comment tracker is available in the documents section of the project website and will be updated throughout the process.  Please let us know if you think we are missing a comment topic.

New Name?
One issue that came up over and over again in public outreach conversations and public comments this winter and spring was a concern that the name of the concept plan area was geographically confusing and was being confused with the Hamlet of Beavercreek. One way to lessen this concern is to potentially begin referring to the area with a new name as part of the code amendment project. Please click on the following link and send us your concept plan renaming ideas. We will have additional opportunities to share naming ideas at the April meeting.

Beavercreek Road Concept Plan Project- Zoning and Code Amendments
The Beavercreek Road Concept Plan (BRCP) is a guide to the creation of a complete and sustainable neighborhood in southeast Oregon City. The acknowledged BRCP provides a framework for urbanization of 453 acres within the urban growth boundary including a diverse mix of uses (an employment campus north of Loder Road,mixed-use districts along Beavercreek Road, and two mixed-use neighborhoods), all woven together by open space, trails, a network of green streets, and sustainable development practices. This spring and summer, the City of Oregon City will embark on a process to amend the Comprehensive Plan Map, Zoning Map and Oregon City Municipal Code (OCMC) to allow planned housing, employment and mixed-use development within the Concept Plan Area. www.orcity.org/Beavercreekroadconceptplan
