Monday, January 13, 6:00, Senior Center

The first 30 minutes of OFDNA’s Board meeting January 13th will be a presentation of the 32.75 acre proposed subdivision at Wilson and 15th Street. In the past, there have been several public meetings to Larkspur Neighborhood Association but this will be a courtesy presentation to OFDNA of the new  proposal. Public objections to the proposal stated in the past meetings have been taken into  consideration and are reflected in the new master plan application. This application will be going to the City Planning Dept. later in January. During the course of gaining approval, the master plan will go before the Bend Planning Commission as well as the City Council so there will be several opportunities for public comment.

The project is now called “Wildflower” The primary change from the first application is that the request for RH zoning has been reduced to RM zoning. The Commercial Node is still small and stripped of auto-intensive uses.

In regard to density:
FINDINGS: The general plan establishes the maximum RS Zone (standard) density at 7.3 dwellings per gross acre. Therefore, the 32.75-acre subject property could accommodate up to 239 dwelling units at standard density. With the applicant’s proposed plan amendment and zone change from RS to RM (mixed use) at 21 dwellings per acre for a total of 549 units with some  residential units over the commercial buildings.
