Development appeal – Council to consider subdivision on Eureka Avenue

October 2021 Posted in Community, News, Other

By James Day

The Silverton City Council will hold a public hearing on an appeal of a proposal for a 22-lot subdivision on Eureka Avenue near the Oregon Garden.

The city Planning Commission denied the proposal at its July 13 meeting, but the property owner has appealed that decision to the council, which will hear it at its 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, meeting.

The developer, Charles Weathers of Orreo, LLC in Salem, wants to divide the 5.15-acre parcel into 22 lots, ranging in size from 6,345 square feet to 18,949 square feet.

The Planning Commission rejected the plan because of its lack of a tree inventory, its possible impact on transportation safety on Eureka, the fact that it contains lots smaller than the 7,000-square-foot standard and a lack of information on housing types that will be used.

Weathers and Orreo LLC appealed, indicating a desire to provide supplemental evidence and conditions of approval to meet city standards on landscaping, lot standards, sidewalks and transportation safety on Eureka.

The City Council heard the appeal at its Sept., 13 session and agreed to hold a public hearing on the issues at its Oct. 4 session.
