AUGUST 13, 2007


The Regular Meeting of the Beaverton City Council was called to order by Mayor Rob Drake in the Forrest C. Soth City Council Chamber, 4755 SW Griffith Drive, Beaverton, Oregon, on Monday, August 13, 2007, at 6:35 p.m.


Present were Mayor Drake, Couns. Catherine Arnold, Betty Bode, Bruce Dalrymple, Dennis Doyle and Cathy Stanton.  Also present were City Attorney Alan Rappleyea, Chief of Staff Linda Adlard, Finance Director Patrick O'Claire, Interim Community Development Director Steve Sparks, Public Works Director Gary Brentano, Human Resources Director Nancy Bates, Police Lieutenant Terry Merritt and City Recorder Sue Nelson.


07162  Presentation on the Drive Less Save More Program

Metro Councilor Kathryn Harrington introduced Pam Peck, Manager of Metro’s Regional Travel Options Program.  Harrington reviewed the Drive Less Save More Program (DLSMP) said the program’s goals were to reduce single-person car trips and increase awareness and use of travel options.  She reviewed statistics and methods of smart driving behavior, such as trip chaining, to reduce the non-work single-person car trips.  She reviewed how the DLSMP was promoted throughout the region and she distributed a packet of program information to the Council.  She asked that the City make this information available to employees and citizens by providing a link to the DLSMP on the City’s Web site. 

Coun. Stanton confirmed with staff that this information could be made available at the City Employees’ Transportation Fair in August 2007.   She asked Harrington if Metro was working with Tri-Met to provide transit service outside of the central city.

Harrington said that Metro and its transportation partners were trying to find the funding to “re-architect” the transportation network to meet the community’s diverse needs.  

Coun. Bode said she tracked her trips for one week and was astounded to find how many trips she made.  She urged everyone to look at their trips and try to reduce them. 

Mayor Drake said the City would put a link to the DLSMP on to the City Web site.


Barbara Wilson, Beaverton, referred to House Bill 3558 that would fund medical insurance for 117,000 uninsured Oregon children through an increase in the cigarette tax.  She voiced her concerns about medical insurance coverage for the poor in Oregon, the high cost of insurance, and the unfair nature of the health care system in this country.  She said Ballot Measure 50 was on the November ballot and would provide medical coverage for Oregon’s uninsured children.  She emphasized the misery of daily living without health care coverage and urged a yes vote on Ballot Measure 50.

Francine Kaufman, Beaverton, suggested that the Visitor Comment Period be at the front of the agenda before any presentations to encourage citizen participation.  She suggested that the City post when the minutes from the City’s Advisory Boards will be available for the citizens.  She noted a meeting of the Board of Design Review was changed from City Hall to the Library and she questioned why.

Mayor Drake explained the City was in the process of doing a seismic upgrade construction project at City Hall and the construction in the stairwells was taking place in the evenings.  He said because of the noise, vibration and disruption, the construction was being done in the evenings so as not to disturb citizens and staff who were trying to conduct normal business during the day.  He said that necessitated a change in meeting locations for those boards that meet in the evening. 

Kaufman said she was employed in organizations where they had had to endure construction work.  She said the City was more respectful of its employees but that was inconvenient for the citizens.  She asked where maps depicting detailed demographic information for neighborhoods could be found.

Mayor Drake said that information could be obtained from the U. S. Census Bureau, Commerce Department.

Henry Kane, Beaverton, said he could not commend the Council enough for its opposition to using urban renewal for the North Bethany area.  He said he opposed this action and there was no authority that allowed using urban renewal funding for this  development, for this was not a blighted urban area.  He urged the Council to stand up and set the standard on this matter.  He said many special districts would lose their tax monies to urban renewal and that should not be allowed to happen. 

Dawn Bonder, Portland, said she was a member of the North Bethany Stakeholders Work Group (Group).  She said the Group has met for the past 16 months and has worked on mapping out a smartly-planned community.  She said funding was the constant issue, and urban renewal and tax increment financing plans were two of the options being considered.  She said she was disappointed to see that the Council was opposing urban renewal at this time.  She said this was still in the exploratory phase and next week the County Commission would consider giving approval to further investigate the details of those plans.  She said part of the investigation would include looking to see if there are ways to ameliorate the impact to the special districts.  She said the Group discussed if there was a way to alleviate the stress that this would put on special districts.

Bonder said these issues have yet to be studied for they were being asked to do something that had not been done in this state.  She said they were trying to find a way to develop a major parcel of land using the tools available within the State.  She said this was being done to develop a good community that flows well and does not impact the surrounding communities.  She urged that the Council hold off on condemning this option until the Group knows what is entailed and the impact to the districts. 

Coun. Arnold asked what other options the Group considered.

Bonder said the consultant’s report was being prepared; the Group was told there were other financing tools and they would discuss how the tools interact with one another.  She said as a school advocate, they would have to show her that the school district would be able to build the needed schools without further burdening the taxpayers.  She said they were assured that the data was coming and she wanted to give them the time needed to bring this information to the table.  She said if the data did not make sense or if it did not work for all, then she probably would not return to Council on this issue.  She said at this time it was premature to say that this could not work. 

Mayor Drake said that under the proposed $25 million assessed value the Tualatin Valley Fire District (TVFR) would receive a frozen amount of $38,000 a year for 25 years.  He said to employ one firefighter cost double that amount and he asked how they would pay for the differential.  He said if they only used urban renewal, the public was entitled to know that everyone outside of the 800-acres in North Bethany would supplement the operating needs of the special districts in that area because they could not even fund one firefighter let alone a substation.  He noted that area was similar in population to the City of Sherwood and he asked how they would fund a fire station without everyone else supplementing it.  He said urban renewal was a nice tool but his concern was if it was the only source being considered and how to offset the financial shortages to the fire and park districts. He said his concern was for the 85,000 people inside the boundaries of the City who would be supplementing this.

Bonder said she agreed with Mayor Drake.  She said she always thought it ridiculous that a governmental entity said “for the good of an entire region, we say development can only occur here.”  She said if it was good for the entire region for development to occur in North Bethany, then perhaps the entire region should be looked at to support that growth.  She said if the region did not have that system of land use planning,  growth would be spread throughout the region and we would not be faced with these type of infrastructure expenses at this time.  She said she agreed with the concern about spreading the cost equitably. 

Bonder said the Group worked hard on this issue for many months and she felt it was wrong to put up roadblocks now, without leaving the door open for discussion.  She stressed that discussion does not commit anyone to a particular course of action.  She said when doors are shut, people’s backs go up and it sets a different dynamic to the conversation.  She said the Group members represented diverse groups and they had  worked well together.  She said without a tool like this, the park district does not have funds to buy the park land that was incorporated into this concept plan.  She said they needed to think about the big picture.  She said there could be downsides to doing an urban renewal district, but there may be other things that could be done to ameliorate that.  She asked that the doors be left open for the discussion.   

David Dahle, Beaverton, said he was a volunteer at the local YMCA and they were putting a flat screen television in that facility to better connect the community.  He said they would be inviting the Mayor and Council to make a statement about the YMCA.  He said they were also preparing a welcoming video for new people in the city.  He thanked the Councilors for their service to the community.  

John O’Neil, Portland, K & R Holdings, said he was one of the three major developers in North Bethany.  He said Bonder expressed their sentiments well.  He asked that the Council and Mayor leave the door open and look at all the available options.  He said no one wanted the service districts to be under-funded and they would all look for solutions.  He said possible solutions could be increased System Development Charges (SDC) County Service Districts, or modifying the implementation of the urban renewal district by allowing the base to be frozen at a later date.  He said there were many options for modifying an urban renewal district.  He said regarding the comments that the rest of the population would be subsidizing North Bethany, it had to be noted that North Bethany’s development would fix many current problems with infrastructure in that area.  He said those capital improvements would benefit the entire area in the future.  He urged the Council to wait and see what funding mechanisms are put in place as the consulting team moves forward. 

Craig Brown, Vice President, Matrix Development/Legend Homes, said he was a major land owner in the North Bethany area and he served on the Stakeholders Group.  He said he agreed with the points made by Bonder and O’Neil.  He said they were very concerned about the City or any other agency making decisions before this issue could be fully discussed.  He said no one ever thought urban renewal would be the only source of funding in North Bethany.  He said the concept plan had a projected cost of $350 million and that could increase due to green development requirements.  He said that worked out to $70,000 per home above the normal cost of development.  He said urban renewal could not support that.  He said they were looking at how to support the schools and parks services.  He asked that the City keep an open mind and let the Group look at all the options to see what makes sense.  He said they would not adopt anything that did not make sense and if the concept plan did not have good financing behind it, it would not be adopted.  He said they wanted to develop this area into a good cross section of housing; it was never the intent to make this an elite housing development.  He stressed they have to have tools to do that, for it would not be development as usual.

Mayor Drake said he had heard that of the 5,000 homes projected in that area, only $16 million would be collected in Traffic Impact Fees (TIF).  He said the TIF currently covers 15-17% of the needs.  He asked Brown if he would advocate for a TIF increase or what other options would he propose. 

Brown said any fee increase would have to be reasonable for there was no logic to having lots that would cost $100,000 more than lots in adjacent areas as they would not be affordable.  He said it was difficult to provide affordable housing and they did not wish to make the homes more expensive.  He said many people assumed Oregon’s impact fees were not sufficient but Oregon had the second highest impact fees of all the 50 states; only California was higher.  He said they know they will have to pay more to develop but they still have to provide an affordable housing product.  He said to that end they were looking at as broad a range of options as possible and urban renewal was just one of the options.

Coun. Arnold asked Brown about the cost of land per acre, since this was farmland.

Brown said there was no development plan yet and costs have increased dramatically since the land was included in the urban area in 2002.   

Coun. Arnold asked if there was any room for the price of the lots to decrease.

Brown said he hoped they would look at that in the future, but the sale of much of this property has already closed.

Coun. Arnold summarized that if they had known what was going to happen, higher fees could have been charged and the property would have sold for less because the developers would have known that they would have higher development costs.  

Brown said that was possible.  He said he encouraged the County to look at that before  identifying future property for inclusion in the urban area.  He said once the contract was written, it was hard to reverse it.  He said in this case what would have happened was that many of the owners would have refused to sell the property.  He said since the parks district and the County do not want to do condemnation, that area would become fractional pieces of property.  He said it was fortunate for the County that the North Bethany area was controlled by a limited number of developers who were able to work with the County to determine where roads and parks would be located and to do the concept plan.  He said if they were to go back in time, he believed it would have been very difficult to develop and they would have to deal with condemnation.  He said if that were the case he did not think this property would be developed in his lifetime.

Coun. Stanton said she thought development of that area was delayed because including North Bethany in the urban area was challenged at LUBA.

Brown said that was not the case.  He said Metro had stated that the concept planning should have proceeded regardless of the LUBA challenge.

Coun. Stanton referred to Brown’s comment that Oregon had the second highest impact fees.  She asked if he had a Web site where that data could be found.  She added that Oregon does not have SDCs for schools as other states do, so she wanted to see the data.

Brown said he would send her that information. 

Mayor Drake asked Brown to send that information to the City Recorder so it could be distributed to all of the Council.

Mayor Drake asked Brown if he could accept the resolution (Agenda Bill 07172) if it said that Urban renewal should not be the only source of funding.

Brown said that was acceptable.  He repeated that no one expected that urban renewal would be the only funding source and no one had the preconception that it would be used; they wanted to explore it as a possible source.  He said there were at least 12 other funding sources that were being considered, along with currently-established fees.  He reiterated that $350 million was a lot of money and it created a great burden to developing housing that the average person can afford. 

Coun. Bode asked Brown for examples of the other funding options being considered.

Brown said other options were real estate taxes, partition fees, local improvement districts, county service districts for roads, gas taxes, TIF, vehicle registration surcharge, transportation and utility fees, a parks expanded System Development Charge (SDC) and grants.

Mayor Drake thanked him for his comments.  


Coun. Dalrymple commended Beaverton Police Officers James Humphrey and Robert Potter who assisted him and others who were involved in a chain reaction vehicle accident in July.  He said they did an excellent job on the scene as they calmed two of the accident victims and they were very professional in their service.


There were none.


Coun. Doyle MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Bode, that the Consent Agenda be approved as follows:

Coun. Doyle said he was pleased to be voting on Agenda Bill 07165, selling property to a non-profit entity for affordable housing.  He said to be able to help Habitat for Humanity build five houses was an excellent service and it was an excellent use of tax dollars.  He said it was exciting to see this come to fruition; it was a great win for the community. 

Coun. Dalrymple referred to the Qualified Rehabilitation Facility (Agenda Bill 07168) and the State statute requirement that the City negotiate with certain janitorial service companies.  He said he wished there was more competition, so that the City would have more than just two companies to choose from.  He said if this was going to be required he would like to see more competition enter the market. 

Coun. Arnold thanked the Council for its past and current support of the Habitat for Humanity Program.   She said it was good to see families obtain affordable homes because of work done by the City.

Mayor Drake called for a brief recess at 7:40 p.m. 


Mayor Drake reconvened the meeting at 7:50 p.m.


07172  A Resolution Expressing the City of Beaverton’s Opposition to Using Urban Renewal and Tax Increment Financing to Pay for Needed Infrastructure Improvements in North Bethany and Other Urban Expansion Areas (Resolution No. 3906)  (Note:  Citizen comments on this item were heard earlier during the Visitor Comment Period)

Mayor Drake said that City staff had participated in the discussions initiated by Washington County on this issue and he was kept informed.  He said he appreciated the County initiating these discussions and recognized the challenge in planning for this area. He said while he supported Urban renewal for the redevelopment of older urban centers, calling this area of vacant farmland “blighted” was a stretch.  He said using only urban renewal would disadvantage the special service districts, especially the Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue District (TVFR) , the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD), and the Beaverton School District (BSD).  He said there were other financing tools available.

Mayor Drake said that urban renewal would freeze the value of the land as of a certain date.  He said as result, TVFR would only collect $38,000 in taxes annually, and that was a fraction of what it costs to run a fire station.  He said a fire station was manned 24 hours a day, trucks have four persons on them by law, and the Bethany population was expected to be from 12,000 to 15,000.  He said that was a big area to serve for only $38,000.  He said he learned that urban renewal was one option but funding for public services was tight and if urban renewal was the only funding source, it would affect the city’s fire and parks services.  He said that was his major concern.  He added that the City of Sherwood, TVFR, THPRD and the BSD have expressed concerns about forming an urban renewal district.  He said that listening to earlier comments, he supported bringing a revised resolution back to Council that would oppose using urban renewal as the sole source for financing infrastructure in that area. 

Coun. Doyle said this would begin a public education process on this issue where citizens would learn the difficulty of the task of developing North Bethany.  He said the magnitude of what they were trying to do was staggering and the State had many constraints that it had placed upon itself.  He said bringing this to the forefront could engender discussions that might lead to solutions, so that the next development like Bethany would not turn into a disaster.  He said this public discussion was long overdue.  He said he agreed with Mayor Drake that it was a stretch in terms of urban renewal and does a disservice to how urban renewal has been used in the past.  He said the districts have expressed a strong concern that they could not go forward this way.  He said he was glad to hear that other options would be considered because without that, this would never be approved.  He said a blend was a better solution and the State Legislature needed to help find a solution to these problems. 

Coun. Stanton said she saw the North Bethany presentation twice, first at the meeting of the Beaverton Committee for Citizen Involvement and second at the Open House at Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus.  She said she wanted to make it clear to everyone that the City of Beaverton would not lose any tax revenue from any of its funding sources should urban renewal be approved for North Bethany.  She said her biggest concern was that TVFR, THPRD and the BSD would be impacted from urban renewal in North Bethany, and the rest of the community would be affected because its fire, parks and school services are provided by these districts.  She said the City wanted to be pro-active and that was what was occurring now.  She said she heard the citizen’s request to leave the door open and give them time to review all possible funding sources.  She said in principle that sounded good but in this specific case, she was not sure there was a lot of sense in looking at options that would not work, or were not legal or feasible.  She stressed that urban renewal was for urban areas and North Bethany was not an urban area.  She questioned how a non-urban area could be developed under urban renewal.  She said she did not want urban renewal on the table because it was not a viable solution in Washington County.  

Coun. Stanton added that she liked section 2 of the resolution that stated “it is the Council’s position that if urban renewal and tax increment financing are to be used in Washington County, it should be in centers designated on the Metro 2040 Growth Concept Map or other areas more appropriate.”  She said there were many urban areas in the County where urban renewal was appropriate; it was not appropriate for North Bethany.

Coun. Dalrymple said he knew the stakeholders group was evaluating the opportunities and he did not think anyone had said urban renewal was the only option.  He said the County was leading the process and planning.  He said he did not think it was the City’s role to come out in opposition.  He said he felt the process should play itself out; that the County should have the opportunity to hire the consultant and determine the options available.  He said Metro and the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) have created a huge imbalance in the community in what it costs to buy and develop land and this imbalance has made it hard to develop an affordable product.  He said if another $50 million were added to that, it would be very hard to make anything affordable.  He suggested letting the process continue so that the options can be determined.  He said the County could then report on what it has found and the City could determine if it wished to support it.  He said the stakeholders need to look at this holistically, trying to balance all concerns, and the solution has to include the special districts.  He said the problems that developers were facing in the County were daunting.  He said he would not support the resolution.   

Coun. Bode said she said she did not wish to put school funding at risk, since it did not have a stable school funding source.  She said safety and livability also have to be considered in regards to the impact on TVFR.  She said it was great that through this  televised meeting, people were becoming aware that the governmental agencies are talking with each other.  She said with Metro’s plans and projected growth; this would become a State issue.  She said with limited funding sources, there were limits as to what could happen in the North Bethany area.  She said this was good information for the County Commission.  She said the Council has a fiduciary responsibility to the community to ensure that funding for the special districts was not eroded. 

Coun. Stanton said she would support the motion.  She said regarding Coun. Dalrymple’s concerns, the Stakeholders Group and the County Commissioners could have their process, this resolution would not hinder the process; the resolution has no legal or binding authority.  She said the resolution states that forming an urban renewal district would be a disservice to the region and to the city’s service providers, and that the City does not feel urban renewal is the right way to proceed for this area.

Coun. Arnold said she felt this was a wider issue of how to provide urban services in this county.  She said there was no plan to provide these services and there was the additional problem of how to pay for very expensive infrastructure.  She said that no major transportation improvement had ever been built by the development community and it made no sense to assume that the development community could pickup 100% of the cost of building the roads.  She said a financing tool was needed.  She said she thought the biggest problem with urban renewal was its name because it was not renewal and there was no blight.  She said she wished the Legislature could develop terminology for dealing with urban infrastructure and urban growth.  She said she felt this action could be too early though she understood the ramifications and impacts to the service providers.  She said this was still in the philosophical conversation stage.  She asked if there was a reason that a decision was needed now.

Mayor Drake explained that the County was having a hearing on the issue on August 21st and he thought it was important to weigh in on the urban renewal aspect prior to the hearing so that they would know the City’s concern.

Coun. Arnold said she preferred that the City be involved in the conversation.  She said the problem still exists and she would rather see conversations between the partners to come to a solution.  She preferred a conversation to a proclamation.

Mayor Drake said he understood Coun. Arnold’s point.  He said he thought this was the beginning, rather than the end.  He said his concern was that this may potentially be the only answer and he thought there was sufficient impact to the special district that it would be helpful to weigh in early that if this was the only tool, then caution was needed. 

Coun. Doyle suggested revising the wording as discussed earlier.

Mayor Drake said he would be happy to revise the resolution to state that the City would not want urban renewal to be the only tool for funding infrastructure in North Bethany.  He said that he and the Councilors were also residents of the City, and as a citizen he was exercising the option to voice his concern for he understood urban renewal and its impacts very well. 

Coun. Stanton said she liked the resolution as it was currently written and did not want to water it down.  She said she would leave the decision up to the Mayor.

Coun. Dalrymple repeated he thought this was premature.  He said he did not think there would be anybody at the County or in the Stakeholders Group who would not know the opinion of the Council majority after this evening.  He said he did not think a resolution was needed to send that message for this would be covered by the press so people would know the City’s position.  He urged the Council to let the process work. 

Coun. Stanton said that on August 21st the County Commissioners would be asked to accept an urban renewal feasibility study for North Bethany and possibly direct preparation of an urban renewal plan.  She said she felt now was the time to act so that this could be included in the Commission packet for August 21st.

Mayor Drake said that was why he was asking for action at this meeting.

Coun. Stanton MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Bode that Council approve a resolution expressing the City of Beaverton’s opposition to using only urban renewal and tax increment financing to pay for needed infrastructure improvements in North Bethany and other urban expansion areas and that the Mayor be directed to deliver the resolution to the Washington County Board of Commissioners. 

Coun. Bode MOVED, SECONDED by Coun. Doyle, that the resolution be amended to state that urban renewal would not be the only funding source used; that other options and funding sources would be part of the North Bethany development.  Coun. Bode, Doyle and Stanton voting AYE, Couns. Arnold and Dalrymple voting NO, the MOTION CARRIED.  (3:2)

Coun. Stanton said she would support the amended motion. 

Coun. Arnold said this would be a long process and the County Commission would know the City’s position.  She asked that the Councilors be kept informed and involved in the process so that they would know what happens.
