Steve Kaufman, Beaverton, said he owned a business in Beaverton, shopped in Cedar Mills and Cedar Hills, and lived in Forrest Heights. He said this illustrates the uniqueness of this community; it is bound together by interdependence, not by jurisdiction. He said borders did not separate the communities. He said he was the Chair of the Save Cedar Mill Committee that was formed when the proposal to locate a Walmart retail store in Cedar Mill became public. He said this Committee had over 1300 members from Cedar Mill, Cedar Hills, Bethany and Beaverton. He said this Committee believed that Oregon's land use laws were not designed to deal with a large retail developer like Walmart. He said the Committee did not specifically oppose Walmart or any large retail developer. He said they were concerned about any retail development that introduces severe traffic and safety issues, threatens the economic viability of the local small business community, impacts neighborhood livability and does not involve the community that will be affected by such development.

Kaufman said members of the Committee were in Salem this week testifying in support of Senator Charlie Ringo's amendment to House Bill 3310. He said the amendment Ringo introduced opens up the planning process for large-scale retail developments and ensures that local citizens have an equal voice in the decision on whether or not to allow the development. He said as this issue progresses, he hoped the City would take into account their four chief concerns with respect to retail development: traffic and safety; affect on local small business; neighborhood integrity; and broad range citizen involvement. He said the Save Cedar Mill Committee was operating with confidence that the Board of Design Review and the City Council were truly committed to taking into account what was best for the citizens of the area

Mayor Drake said if Walmart did submit an application to the City, this type of testimony would not be allowed at that time because it could be characterized as an “ex parte” contact. He said if an application was submitted, there would be opportunities for the Cedar Mill Committee to submit its comments to the appropriate board.

Coun. Stanton asked for clarification concerning what Senator Ringo introduced regarding HB 3310.

Kaufman said Ringo introduced an amendment to HB 3310, which had cleared Committee and should be introduced to the Senator Floor soon.

Henry Kane, Beaverton, said last Thursday LUBA heard the arguments on the appeal of Kane, Corby and Monson v. City of Beaverton. He said a decision was due by June 24, 2005. He said that was four days after the June 20, 2005, public hearing on the City's proposed budget. He suggested the Council delay adoption of the budget until after the June 24, 2005, LUBA decision. He said he would testify to the Washington County Board of Commissioners tomorrow in opposition to the transfer of County roads and streets to the City, on the grounds that the matter of the legality and constitutionality of the Barnes Road/Cedar Hills Boulevard annexation is under legal challenge.


Mayor Drake said Jack Franklin attended a previous Council meeting and testified under the Visitor Comment Period (representing the Schiffler Park Watch Committee) regarding issues at Schiffler Park. He asked Operations Director Gary Brentano to report to Council on this matter.

Brentano said Franklin had reported there were several inactive electrical panels in the Park and had asked that they be removed. He said the City removed the inactive panels and capped the wiring. He said two panels, one at the picnic area and one at the handball court area, were still used for a variety of events throughout the year. He said power was needed at those locations. He said the City was replacing those panels with vandal-resistant panels and the new panels should be in place by next week.

Mayor Drake confirmed with Brentano that he had spoken with Wally Fisher on this matter.

Coun. Bode said the first Picnic in the Park would be this Thursday, June 9, 2005, in Camille Park at 6:00 p.m.

Senior Engineer Erica Rooney and Plan Review Engineer Jim Duggan Plan introduced themselves. Rooney said the projects that took five years or more were The Round, Progress Quarry, and Sexton Crest/Sexton Mountain area which included the Haggen's development.
