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.   There will be no meeting in December.  The deadline for submitting applications for the January 2018 meeting is Friday, January 5. 


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 are large (about 5 Mb) 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 September 25, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application for major modification to a previously approved site plan  for the Stayton Veterinary Clinic at 181 E Hollister St.  The original site plan included a 6-foot sight-obscuring fence along the north property line of 181 E Hollister St and 1308 N First Ave, adjacent to residential uses.  The modification request is to not install portions of the fence.  Following the public hearing the Planning Commission approved a modified plan and requested that the staff bring back a revised draft order.  At the October 30 meeting, the Planning Commission will review the revised draft order.  No public testimony will be accepted, as the public hearing has been closed.


The City Council has initiated the annexation of City-owned property at 2800 Kindle Way and a Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Zoning Map amendment for the City owned property at 2400 Kindle Way.  The Planning Commission's hearing on these applications was commenced on September 25.  The application includes the annexation of about 23 acres of land, changing the comprehensive plan designation for that property from Residential to Public, and assigning Public/Semi-Public zoning to the property, with a Natural Resource Overlay District applying along Mill Creek.  In addition, the application includes a Comprehensive Plan Map amendment from Residential to Public for the 12 acres at 2400 Kindle Way.  Due to a failure to provide timely notification to the State of Oregon of the public hearing, the hearing will be continued until the October 30 meeting.  The applications will then be forwarded to the City Council, who will hold their own public hearing, in mid-November.


The Planning Commission has proposed proposed Code amendments that will require developers of subdivisions and partitionings to erect a fence along the rear or side yards of lot abutting an arterial street or major collector street. The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the proposed amendments on September 25.  The Planning Commission forwarded the amendments to the City Council who will hold a public hearing on November 6.




The City of Stayton has submitted concurrent applications for Annexation, Comprehensive Plan Map amendment and Zoning Map amendment.  The Planning Commission's public hearing on the applications will be held on September 25.


The Annexation applications asks for 23 acres of City-owned land to be annexed into the City Limits.  This is property the City purchased in January 2017 for future development of a park.


The Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment application requests that the Comprehensive Plan Map designation be changed from Residential to Public for approximately 35 acres of City-owned property, including the 23 acres to be annexed.


The Zoning Map Amendment application requests that the 23 acres of land to annexed be assigned Public/Semi-Public zoning and that the zoning of the 12 acres of land currently in the City be changed from Medium Density Residential to Public/Semi-Public.  In addition the Natural Resource Overlay District will be applied to the land along Mill Creek.


Copies of the applications, maps showing the current and proposed comprehensive plan designation and zoning, the staff report and a draft Planning Commission order are posted below.  Following the Planning Commission's public hearing, the applications will be forwarded to the City Council, who hold their own public hearing in mid-November.
