Planning Commission - Agendas, Minutes and Public Hearing Notices

Agendas for Planning Commission meetings are posted here as soon as they are prepared, generally, the Monday before the Commission meeting. 


Minutes are posted here once they have been approved by the Planning Commission, generally the month after the meeting occurs.


The third tab below provides notice of upcoming public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council and provides access to materials associated with that public hearing.

The Planning Commission generally meets the last Monday of the month.  However due to the holiday season, the November and December meeting will not occur as regularly scheduled.  There will not be a meeting in November and the December meeting will be held on Monday, December 9.   The next meeting of the Planning Commission will be on January 27, 2020.  The deadline for submitting applications for the January meeting is Friday, January 3.  


The agenda for the December 9 meeting includes a public hearing on a city-initiated proposal to vacate a portion of an alley; a public hearing on applications for annexation and comprehensive plan amendment for property on Fern Ridge Rd and continued discussion of possible Code amendments relative to residential zoning.


The Planning Department sends out an email with the Planning Commission agenda on a monthly basis. If you would like to receive the agenda delivered to your in-box, let us know.  Send us an email and we will add you to the distribution list.  We promise your name and email address will stay secure.


Agendas for the most recent six months are available below.  For older documents, please contact the Planning Department.  Usually, the entire packet will be posted, rather than just the agenda.  Note that the packet files may be large and downloading may be quicker if you right click on the link below and "save target as."


More information on each item on the agenda may be found at the Public Hearing Notices tab above.

This tab contains links to minutes from the past six months.  For older documents, please contact the Planning Department.

On October 28, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on proposed legislative text amendments to the Land Use and Development Code to establish design requirements along N First Ave between Water St and Washington St.  Planning Commission forwarded the amendments to the City Council with a recommendation for adoption.  The City Council's public hearing on the proposed amendments will be on Monday, January 6.


On Monday, December 9, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on applications for annexation and comprehensive plan amendment for 19.1 acres of property on Fern Ridge Road, between Foothills Church and the Boulders Mobile Home Park.  The applicant has requested the City bring the property into the City Limits and change the Comprehensive Plan designation from Residential to Commercial.  The applicant intends to construct a recreational vehicle park on the property.

At the request of Revitalize Downtown Stayton, the Planning Commission is considering the adoption of a design overlay zone for the east side of N First Ave, between E Washington St and the Stayton Power Canal.  The Stayton Downtown Transportation and Revitalization Plan, adopted in 2007, calls for design standards along this section of N First Ave.


The proposed amendments would establish an overlay district.  The overlay district would not affect the uses permitted, but only establish design standards impacting building architecture, color, and landscaping.


The Planning Commission will be held a public hearing on the proposed standards on October 28.  Following the public hearing,the Planning Commission made a slight change to the area to be covered by the overlay district, removing property to the north of W Washington St, and forward the amendments to the City Council.  The City Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed amendments on Monday, January 6.

Gene Jones has submitted applications for annexation and comprehensive plan amendment for 19.1 acres on the north side of Fern Ridge Road.  The property is currently zoned Urban Transition by Marion County and designated Residential by the Stayton Comprehensive Plan.  The applications request it be brought into the City, have the comprehensive plan designation changed to Commercial, and have the Interchange Development Zone assigned to the property.  The applicant has not submitted an application for development of the property but has submitted a conceptual plan for a recreational vehicle park.  The City allows an application for annexation without a concurrent application for development, but requires that future development of the property substantially comply with the conceptual plan submitted.


The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the applications on Monday, December 9.  Following the public hearing the Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council, who will hold a second public hearing and render a decision on the applications.


Copies of the applications and the supplementary information submitted by the applicant have been posted below.  Also posted are the review comments from the City Engineer, Kittelson and Associates, Marion County Public Works, the staff report, and the draft order for consideration by the Planning Commission.
