Ordinance No. 712 proposes to amend the Washington County Comprehensive Plan to adopt the land use and transportation components of the North Bethany Subarea Plan.
The filed ordinance includes the text and maps that make up the North Bethany Subarea Plan. Other exhibits amend the Comprehensive Framework Plan for the Urban Area (Urban Plan), the 2020 Transportation Plan and the Community Development Code (CDC). Additional Comprehensive Plan changes to implement the Subarea Plan are required. Staff will provide them at the initial Planning Commission hearings.
