City Attorney Mark Pilliod stated he received a phone call from the attorney and
representative for Salem Communications regarding unsubstantiated information they
received after the close of the hearing.  He explained the station had been broadcasting
since 1947 but there appeared to be a discrepancy as to when the existing tower was
constructed, which may have been as late as 1959.  He said the applicant wanted Council
to be aware that they did not intentionally misstate any information; they wanted to be
completely up front even though they realized this information would not become part of
the official record.  He said that based on Council questions to many of the people who
testified, most if not all of them purchased property or developed their homes after the
tower was constructed, so the effect was inconsequential.  
Council thanked him for the information.
Coun. Ruby MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Soth that the Consent Agenda be approved
as follows:
Final Order Granting Appeal and Reversing the Planning Commission’s Denial of a Radio
Tower; Salem Communications, Applicant;  CUP 2001-0033/APP 2002-0016, 
CUP 2001-0032/APP 2002-0017, and TPP 2002-0003/APP 2002-0018 (Continued from
meeting of 04/14/03)
Liquor License (Pesaro Italian Grill)
Boards and Commissions Appointments 
Question called on the motion.  Couns. Bode, Soth, Ruby and Stanton voting AYE, the
MOTION CARRIED unanimously.  (4:0)
Appeal of CPA 2002-0014 Transportation System Plan Update Implementing Amendment
(APP 2003-0006)
Mayor Drake opened the public hearing.
Engineering Director Tom Ramisch explained this was an appeal of the amendments to
the Transportation System Plan (TSP).  He said the appeal addressed the proposed street
connection between Fairfield Street on the east and Terman Road on the west, which
went through the Cedar Hills Crossings Shopping Center, formally known as Beaverton
Mall.  He explained the TSP went through months of review and there was a high level of
harmony with the plan with this one exception.  He explained that in the late stages of the
review, two new factors came to light.  First, he said, CE John Company applied to build a
theater complex on the west side of the mall, in the same area where the City envisioned
this street to come out on the west end.  Second, he noted, was the approval of a new
traffic signal at Fairfield Street and Cedar Hills Boulevard.  He said they anticipated a
change in traffic patterns and this long term connection would be influenced with the
installation of the new signal.

Ramisch explained that because of these two factors, staff was recommending the
deletion of this proposed connection in the plan and that the appeal of CE John Company
be granted.  He said staff felt they could proceed with this change in the plan and all
parties would be satisfied.
Coun. Stanton noted the Hocken Street connection was still shown on Figure 6.4 (under
the “C” on Cedar Hills).
Ramisch explained that was the Hall Street extension; the Fairfield extension would be to
the north and was not shown.
Coun. Soth asked if the Hall Street extension would remain a private street.  
Ramisch answered it would remain a private street built to City standards.
Coun. Stanton confirmed with Ramisch that the location information on page 99, Table
6.3, would be changed. 
Renee France, CE John Company, Portland, stated they were in complete agreement with
the staff report and would reserve comments.  She said that if the Council decided on
anything different from the staff’s recommendation, she wanted to discuss their appeal.   
She thanked staff for working with them through the entire process.  
Mayor Drake explained Council could not voice its direction during the public hearing.  
She said she understood that and the record was complete with their position and the
facts.  She asked if Council had any questions or concerns.  
Coun. Soth asked if she concurred with the present recommendation in the staff report.  
France said she did.
There was no additional testimony.
Mayor Drake closed the public hearing.
Coun. Soth MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Ruby that the Council grant the appeal of
CPA 2002-0014 Transportation System Plan Update Implementing Amendment (APP
2003-0006) and affirm the staff recommendation to modify the Planning Commission
recommendation by deleting the Fairfield Street extension from Cedar Hills Boulevard to
Hocken Avenue and Terman Road from Figure 6.4 Functional Class, Figure 6.5 Street
Improvement and Table 6.3 Street Improvement Master Plan, and direct staff to prepare
the final order and ordinance.  
Mayor Drake confirmed the motion included what was recommended and all substantial
records in this matter.

Pilliod clarified that staff prepared the ordinance to reflect the changes the Council would
approve with this motion and no separate order was needed with the adoption of the
ordinance.  He noted CE John Company was the only one with standing and they
supported the ordinance, so there was no need for a separate order.
Coun. Stanton said she agreed with the staff recommendation but noted the Planning
Commission considered this for many months.  She said it was difficult to balance future
and immediate needs, and though she thought this was more than what was needed, she
would support it.  
Coun. Soth said he favored granting the appeal because of the ground leases in effect for
50 years and other apparent needs.  He stated that when a line was drawn on a map
through an occupied area, a cloud was thrown over the whole title for any future
development of that area.  He noted there were two roads in Washington County that
needed improvement; Walker Road (from 185th to 217) and Jenkins Road widening on the
north side.  He said these improvements would contribute to relieving traffic in that
neighborhood.  He said this connection threw an unnecessary cloud over the title and did
a disservice to the type of improvements they were trying to attract in the downtown area. 
He said for those reasons he supported granting the appeal.
Coun. Ruby said he agreed with what had been said and that this change was justified,
even without the theater application offered in February.  He said a lot of evidence was
provided that showed the long-term use of this property may be benefited if this feature
was deleted.
Questions called on the motion  Couns. Bode, Ruby, Soth and Stanton voting AYE, the
MOTION CARRIED unanimously. (4:0)
Coun. Soth MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Stanton that the rules be suspended, and that
the ordinances embodied in Agenda Bills 03098 and 03099 be read for the first time by
title only at this meeting, and for the second time by title only at the next regular meeting of
the Council.  Couns. Bode, Ruby, Soth and Stanton voting AYE, the MOTION CARRIED
unanimously.  (4:0)

(Ordinance No. 4150)
Mayor Drake noted more work was needed on the Secondhand Dealer Ordinance,
Agenda Bill 03084, which received first reading at the last Council meeting.  He called for
a motion to reconsider.
Coun. Soth MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Ruby that the Council reconsider the
ordinance in Agenda Bill 03084 and that the first reading, which occurred at the last
Council meeting, be revoked at this time.
Mayor Drake explained this would be brought back to Council for first reading.  
Coun. Stanton asked if this could be discussed before it was brought back for first reading.  
Mayor Drake replied that since the first reading was just a motion for reading, they could
have that discussion.  
Coun. Stanton confirmed she wanted to discuss the ordinance.
