Luke-Dorf to Hold Neighborhood Meeting to Review Land Use Development Proposal
Luke-Dorf, Inc., plans to convene a neighborhood meeting on August 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. regarding Clover Court, a six-unit affordable housing development for homeless individuals facing mental health challenges. The meeting will be held at the Aloha Church of God at 18380 SW Kinnaman Road in Beaverton. The purpose of the meeting is to provide a forum for the developer and surrounding property owners and residents to review the Clover Court proposal and to identify any land use issues before a development application is submitted to Washington County. Luke-Dorf staff will answer questions that are relevant to land use development standards consistent with the Washington County Community Development Code and Community Plan.

More information is available by contacting Will Allen, Housing Director with Luke-Dorf, at 503-597-3988.
Next Steps in the Process
Once the Clover Court development application is submitted, notification of a public hearing before an independent hearings officer will be sent to every property owner within 500 feet of the Clover Court site. The purpose of the hearing will be whether the proposed development complies with the land use rules. Under county rules, the entire land use approval process for the development application must conclude within 120 days of the application being submitted. Once permits are issued, Luke-Dorf will be able to begin construction, possibly by the summer of 2018. More information about the land use development process can be found on this chart from Land Use & Transportation.

Washington County has a long-standing policy through which the Board of Commissioners may transfer ownership of surplus property to the County Housing Authority and to non-profit organizations that create and manage affordable homes. This is one way the county tries to address the critical shortage of affordable housing and to leverage additional resources to prevent homelessness.
