Land use items top council agenda | Local

The Corvallis City Council meets at 6 p.m. Monday at the downtown fire station, 400 NW Harrison Blvd., with two high-visibility land-use cases on the agenda.

First, councilors will deliberate on an appeal by developers who own property in the Timberhill area who want a planned development overlay removed from their 200-plus acres of land. Councilors held a public hearing on the issue Sept. 5 and held the record open an additional week. The public hearing portion of the hearing is now closed and no public testimony will be taken.

The second land-use case will be heard at a 7:30 p.m. public hearing. Neighbors and the homeowners association at the adjacent Suncrest subdividion are appealing an Aug. 16 Planning Commission decision to approve the Ponderosa Ridge subdivision, a development that would put approximately 275 single-family homes and duplexes on acreage off of Northwest Ponderosa Avenue and Walnut Boulevard.

Councilors also have scheduled two executive sessions, one at 5:15 p.m. to evaluate Municipal Judge Chris Dunfield and the second following the regular meeting to evaluate the city attorney’s office.
