30.3     Tiffany Pool, 305 N. Grape St., would like Council to help facilitate the property across the street from her; it is an eyesore and affecting property values. She would like solid fencing to block the eyesore located at Budge/McHugh. Mayor Wheeler questioned the address which is between Grape and Fir and 3rd and 4th streets. Mayor Wheeler noted that the City will take a look at it.  Ms. Pool indicated that she has talked to Code Enforcement and Planning and they stated that it is zoned heavy commercial residential and it has been grandfathered in. With her bed and breakfast across the street it is affecting the ability to rent it out because of the eyesore.  The Wine Pallet also has issues with the lot. She would like them to put up solid fencing since it is in the Historic District and there are residences surrounding it.  Councilmember Corcoran noted that this is the first time Council has heard anything about this and would like to receive a report from staff with pictures of the property and what the Councilís options might be.  Mayor Wheeler will meet with Deputy City Manager Chris Reising.  Ms. Pool needs to get together with Mr. Reising and take a look at the issue to determine if it is a Council issue.

Deputy City Manager for Development Services Chris Reising presented the staff report showing the realignment of Sixth Street and Riverside on the east side, as shown on the map provided. Councilmember Gordon requested a landscape plan and inquired as to whether it had been reviewed by Parks & Recreation and the Historical Commission.  Mr. Reising noted it was reviewed by Planning, the Water Commission and Parks and Recreation; it has not been reviewed by the Historic Commission as that is not required. Councilmember Gordon asked about the vegetation and questioned the pathway and landscaping along Bear Creek.  Mr. Reising stated he would get a copy to him but noted the requirements along the bank, such as ADA and ODFW were followed and that is why the path is meandering. Councilmember Gordon questioned how much of the property was in the 100 year flood plain; Mr. Reising noted it was a very small portion, only about 30-40 feet. Councilmember Gordon questioned the additional layer of future parking and ingress/egress. Mr. Reising noted we can do a future elevated parking structure with what is shown. Councilmember Gordon questioned a walkway to East Main Street along Bear Creek; Mr. Reising noted that it is not in the scope of this project but did provide information on a future bridge.

d.     Mayor Wheeler noted we will work through the process of the UGB by areas as much as possible. Councilmember Gordon would like someone to talk to Council on proper procedures on ex-parte contact and conflicts of interest. Mayor Wheeler noted we will have conflicts on this but Legal will address this issue. Councilmember Zarosinski requested clarification on this being a legislative matter and ex-parte. Ms. Cooper noted it is a legislative decision so there is really no prohibition against ex-parte contact, thatís the whole point of being legislative so that constituents can contact you.The only part that would be considered is the conflict of interest, so if you or a family member are the owner of property or have a monetary interest in property that is to be considered then you would have to recuse yourself from the entire process. Ms. Cooper stated that she has written a memo about this and can distribute to Council.Councilmember Bunn noted it applies to you, a family member, or anyone that you are involved with.

110.  Oral requests and communications from the audience
 
120.  Public hearings
Mayor Wheeler provided information on the procedure for the Urban Growth Boundary Amendment.  The properties will be addressed in numerical order, beginning with MD-1.  There have been three public hearings scheduled for this item; if more are needed they will be scheduled. 
 
120.1 Consideration of a proposed Comprehensive Plan/Urban Growth Boundary Amendment affecting the General Land Use Plan (GLUP) map, the Medford Street Functional Classification Plan of the Transportation Element, and portions of the text of both the Urbanization and GLUP Elements. 
 
Planning Director Jim Huber introduced the team, Bianca Petrou, Assistant Planning Director, who was the Project Manager, John Adam, Senior Planner, Joe Slaughter, Planner IV and Chris Olivier, GIS Coordinator have all worked on the project over the past several years.  He stated that Joe Slaughter, Planner IV, would be giving the presentation tonight. Mr. Slaughter provided a brief staff report, stating that this is the same information that was presented at the recent City Council study session. He also provided information on the additional paperwork at their places.
 
Mayor Wheeler stated that we would start with MD-1.
 
Public hearing opened.
 
Mayor Wheeler asked for any declarations of conflict.
 
Councilmember Bunn noted that Councilmember Jackle is not in attendance tonight and will not be recusing himself from the proceedings as he would catch up by watching this meeting and attending the other meetings.  Councilmember Bunn stated that he needed to recuse himself from the proceedings and would enjoy the meeting from the audience. Councilmember Corcoran stated that due to his place of employment he would also be recusing himself from the proceedings.
 
MD-1
  1. Mike Montero, 4497 Brownridge Terrace, provided general comments on this process. He noted that the City of Medford finds itself in an unusual situation, and that is that you become the applicant, and you will be the applicant to Jackson County and they will need to jointly adopt whatever it is that you approve through this process.After that is done the Oregon Land Conservation Development Commission will have to acknowledge it and it is imperative that everyone understands that it is important that we are all on the same page so that the Amendment is successful and there are no appeals.He reminded Council what happened in robust years due to restrictions placed on the City because of infrastructure deficiencies.He requested that the City leave the record open so that there will be time for clarifying information to be introduced into the record with the express purpose of strengthening the application.
        
Councilmember Gordon questioned leaving the record open.  Ms. Cooper indicated that since this is not a quasi-judicial hearing, there really is nothing in the statute that requires a 7-day period if somebody requests for the record to be left open.  She advised Council to make a motion at the end of the hearings to leave the record open for a 7-day period, if that is Councilís desire. 
 
MD-1
1.     Megan LaNier, Richard Stevens & Associates, representing citizens that have property located in MD-2, provided Exhibit P, which is a conceptual site plan for Coker Butte Development and noted where parks and trails will be located. She also provided the ranking for this parcel.Proximity scored 5; transportation scored 2 (however independent sources did an evaluation and determined it would more than likely be a 3 or 4 ranking); MWC scored 5/3/1(5 to 3 scoring as a result of conceptual plan came through).
 
Councilmember Gordon questioned the wetlands in this parcel.  Staff confirmed that the wetlands were considered open space and is accommodated for.
 
2.     Kim Parducci, Principal in firm for Southern Oregon Transportation Engineering, provided information on the traffic impacts for MD-2 Coker Butte Development. She noted that they believe this should not be rated a 2 pertaining to transportation and should have a higher rating such as a 3 or 4.
 
3.     Brad Earl, Chief Operating Officer of the Medford School District, stated that they are watching this project closely. The school district thinks this area, MD-2, is a good location for an elementary school, and also modifications to MD-5.
 
4.      Mike Malepsy, part owner of the Coker Butte Development, supports the Planning Commission and staffís efforts. This is a good area for the City to grow with workforce housing and there is a lot of support for that.
 
MD-3

1.     Dunbar Carpenter, Exhibit Y, presented his testimony. His attorney, Dorothy Cofield, submitted her report as Exhibit H.The property in question is MD-3 stating that there are three different land owners that are collaborating on this particular design, Coker Butte Properties, Steve Skinner and himself. This fills an economic nitch and is designed to fit the needs of first time homebuilders, both single family and multi-family housing. He provided the problems with new MD-5, such as sewer and water expenses.
  
Councilmember Gordon questioned the agreement with Jackson County and five other cities in the Regional Problem Solving regarding McAndrews Road and Foothill Road and questioned if the owners of MD-3 would pay to bring that up to city standards. He noted there is the Pacific Power substation there and would be a major expense to improve Foothill Road. Mr. Carpenter stated the power station is over a mile from MD-3. Councilmember Gordon stated that the City would then need to take on the responsibility of Foothill Road which would entail the substation. Mr. Carpenter stated that it is a broad general question pertaining to the roads. Councilmember Gordon stated that we donít have the mechanism to improve Foothill Road and MD-3 would be the most costly to bring up to standard.
 
Joe Slaughter noted that MD-3 is a large area and provided the location where Mr. Carpenterís parcel was located.
 
2.     Steve Skinner, 1934 Country Club Drive, provided information on MD-3 vs. MD-5 and stated that this property is great for affordable housing.His property was originally included in the amendment then there was an issue with having too much land in the amendment so the Planning Department went back and came up with three alternatives to the Planning Commission.His property was in alternative #1 which was preferred by staff, but it was overlooked in favor of the MD-5 parcel by the Planning Commission.The scoring for MD-3 was 9 to 11 where MD-5 was 5, just as a point of discussion.Mr. Skinner believes that their properties are very well suited for future expansion.
 
Councilmember Zarosinski announced that he does not have a conflict but due to the nature of the kind of work he does he potentially could do work on any project that comes in but does not have any true conflict. 

3.     Laz Ayala, 132 W. Main Street #202, stated that did not have any property in MD-3 however he developed an interest and concern for this area in favor of MD-3. He purchased some property in the area of Coker Butte Road which he has since sold.As a concerned member of the public and community in favor of MD-3, he wanted to point out a few relevant points.Attributes are the connectivity and connecting McLaughlin to Coker Butte Road would create much better circulation.
 
4.     Mike Savage, CSA Planning, 4497 Brownridge Terrace, stated that he represents people in MD-3, 160 acres west of Foothill Road, east of the northerly extension of McLaughlin Road and north of Delta Waters generally.He requested Council approve the Planning Commissionís recommendation to include this land within the Urban Growth Boundary.MD-3 Exhibit CC, called the Autumn Hill Conceptual Plan will be a mixed unit development, some commercial, some high density and single family. Foothill Road is a regional improvement, the County will likely assist and grants may be obtained for Foothill Road. He noted that there are some discrepancies with this process that should be cleaned up.There is a need to build a strong record for this Amendment.The course filter has several underlying inconsistencies that should be cleaned up before the process moves forward. 

5.     Craig Stone, 4497 Brownridge, Suite 101, talked about the scoring categories, Goal 14 and the fatal flaws. He talked about the scoring procedures and how it can fail. There are big problems with our process, fatal flaws as we like to call them, and would not survive a challenge.He urged Council to direct the Planning Department to make the necessary changes.
 
MD-4
a.  Steven Pfeiffer, Portland land use lawyer with Perkins Coie, along with CSA Planning and JRH Engineering, have been asked by Hillcrest Corporation, which controls approximately 250 acres of MD-4, in their efforts to see that this land becomes available for urbanization.  A submittal, which consists of a letter from him as well as a handout from Jim Hanks of JRH and CSA Planning which will need to be included in its entirety, as it meets all of the requirements as it is surrounded by the City.  MD-4 must come in regarding Oregon Law. 
 
Councilmember Stine questioned what would this land be used for.  Mr. Pfeiffer stated that there are plans for the area and is in the handout received tonight. You need to be careful based on the potential or intent of the development. Councilmember Stine noted that the parcel has been like this for some time; Mr. Pfeiffer stated since 1993. Additional history on this parcel was presented.
 
1.     Raul Woerner, CSA Planning, indicated that the last UGB was in 1980. In 1990 after studying 9000 acres the City again decided to expand its boundary to the east and that is when it enveloped the Hillcrest Property entirely.Councilmember Stine further questioned the exclusion of Hillcrest property last time and were managed to have it approved.It was noted that the City tried not to encroach on farmland. Mr. Pfieffer would not assume that that history will repeat itself. Councilmember Gordon noted that this is a thriving farmland and stated that the issue could be that the owners may want to develop this if they want to. We would have to count this as buildable lands and if it is not built, we will not have enough land to build on. Mr. Pfieffer stated that this is not unique to this property and any property could not be buildable. Mr. Pfieffer indicated that Goal 14, 11 and 2, do not allow you to skip over this land because of your fear or lack of certainty that it will be developed. He noted that this property has been losing money for a number of years. This corporation is absolutely behind bringing in this land for development.Raul Woerner stated that this is the only urban reserve area that is surrounded by the City and the property owners are behind this.

2.     Carole Parsons Hashimoto, President and CEO of Hillcrest Corporation, 3285 Hillcrest Road, stated that the Parsonsí family has owned this property for over 100 years. In the mid 90ís the property was handled by a trust of 11 members who decided at that time that they wanted to stay in agriculture. Fast forward, they are now an S corporation with 59 shareholders, a Board of Directors, and a Mission Statement, which is to maximize shareholder wealth; there is only one way to do that and that is to bring this property to urbanization.
 
3.     Jim Hanks, President of JRH Transportation Engineering, was requested by Hillcrest Corporation to take a look at this site from a transportation point of view.The road systems are already complete, surrounding the property.This is on the route for transit, it is not on the end of a transit route.Proximity is also present on this property as opposed to others, arguably closer to shopping centers, hospital, and fire stations.Urban services are available now to support this.From a transportation point of view is certainly better than any other of the UGB extensions on the east side of the freeway, and arguable on the extensions on the west side also.
 
4.     Karen Allen, 2895 Hillcrest Road, a member of the Carpenter family and of Rocky Knoll, LLC which owns 30 acres in MD-4.She strongly urged the City to include MD-4 into the UGB. Councilmember Bearnson questioned if they wanted the entire parcel of MD-4 to be included in the UGB; Ms. Allen stated that was correct.
 
Mayor Wheeler declared a recess at 8:55 p.m.
 
*************************
Council reconvened to the Evening Session at 9:08 p.m. with same members present.
 
*Councilmember Corcoran left.
 
         Mayor Wheeler extended his appreciation of the fine job everyone was doing with their presentations.
 
MD-5
Joe Slaughter stated this is a very large area so when testifiers come up they can identify their area. 
 
  1. Jay Harland, CSA Planning, 4497 Brownridge, spoke about a general land need issue. He requested Council to carefully look at the adopted plan elements and that the concerns are adequately addressed.
  2. Carl Bartlett, 2829 Kari Circle, former member of the Planning Commission and the Southeast Plan Advisory Committee, requested Council approve MD-5 into the UGB.
  3. Mike Mahar, 815 Aldercreek Drive, requested Council approve MD-5 into the UGB. He noted there are four parcels in MD-5 and he is a partner in three of the parcels desiring to be included in the UGB. There are twelve total partners.This Southeast Committee Masterplan has been in the works for 20 years.He thanked the City for considering MD-5 and requested that it be adopted.
Councilmember Gordon thanked Mr. Mahar for the information provided. He questioned infrastructure that the City would need to pay for MD-5; Mr. Mahar stated that there was not.  Mr. Mahar stated again how grateful he was to be where they are at in the planning, and hopefully that MD-5 stays in the running for consideration. 
 
  1. Chris Hearn, 515 East Main, Ashland, stated that he is representing a group of land owners, who started working on a plan about a year ago.He indicated Exhibit R which is the conceptual master plan for this area, is included in City Council packet.It is in the center of MD-5. It will be primarily a multi-family development.He requested Council approve the MD-5 for the parcel in question.
  2. Ron Wallace, 2402 Senate Way, supports Centennial Golf Course being included in the UGB.They bring tournaments and money into our City and are rated as one of the top 100 public golf courses in the country, top 10 in Oregon.  
  3. Greg Hathaway, attorney from Portland, representing Rogue Valley Manor and the Centennial Golf Course, requested that Centennial Golf Course be included in the UGB. The golf course itself will be designated ďopen spaceĒ and will not be developed, thus allowing another 120 acres to be included in the UGB for development purposes.They would like to develop an active adult retirement community around the golf course. They have filed a quasi-judicial land use application in February of 2006 to amend the UGB to build an active adult retirement community around the Centennial Golf Course to compliment the services the Manor provides. They agreed to hold off on that process and to be included in this legislative process.Exhibit L, which is the conceptual drawing, was presented to be entered into the record.He requested inclusion of the Centennial Golf Course property in the UGB.
Councilmember Zarosinski questioned how property would meet the density requirement; Mr. Hathaway noted there is a conceptual plan for the 297 acres, which is the developed portion, and would meet the 6.6 units per acre requirement.
 
  1. Justin Carson, 3511 Cherry Lane, requested Council approve MD-5 as he would like to see the trails and bike paths developed.  
  2. Sue Kupillas, 749 Pierce Road, Chair of the Rogue Valley Manor Board of Directors, requested Council approve MD-5 including Centennial Golf Course for the Rogue Valley Manor.She has submitted a letter from the Board of Directors into the record.
Councilmember Bearnson questioned the increased retirement community and when this development would occur; Ms. Kupillas stated that she believed they would be able to start right away as infrastructure is already in.
 
  1. Randall Jones, 815 Aldercreek Drive, partner in Mahar Homes, provided information on the southeast area sewer analysis. He noted sewer costs would be nominal and would be done when the service is extended. He submitted a letter into the record and requested approval of MD-5.
  
Councilmember Gordon questioned if the City has adequate infrastructure to support this; Mr. Jones noted that they have studied Barnett Road and development does pay for it. He noted that the Medford Water Commission has money from them to develop this property. 
 
Motion:  Move to extend the meeting to 10:30 p.m.
Moved by:  Kevin Stine                                              Seconded:  Eli Matthews

  2. Mike Montero, representing his client, requested MD-5 property located immediately south of Centennial Golf Course and is bordered on the east by North Phoenix Road and on the west by I-5, be approved for the conceptual Employment Campus Master Plan.
  
Councilmember Gordon questioned the infrastructure cost for this portion of MD-5; Mr. Montero stated storm water, sanitary sewer, and water are to be borne by the developer. Pertaining to transportation, collaboration will be needed and are provided when a need is identified. He stated that this could be an alternative route while the viaduct is repaired should it be damaged from an earthquake.
 
  1. Raul Woerner, 3965 Fieldbrooke Avenue, stated that he lives in the Summerfield development and requested Council approve MD-5 for this area. He further provided information on the agricultural buffer.
