The Philomath Planning Commission plans to meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19 at City Hall with an agenda that will feature two public hearings involving applications for development.
H&R Homes Development has applied to develop 12.63 acres of property located immediately north of Chapel Drive and southeast of Philomath Middle School. The applicant would like to subdivide the property into 53 lots to build single-family homes.
The proposed zoning is low-density residential. The eastern portion of the property was annexed into the city in March and a property line adjustment was approved in July.
Another hearing will be for an application by Ronald and Barbara Hartz to change the comprehensive plan designation and zoning from industrial to high-density residential on 9.9 acres of property on the north end of Landmark Drive.
According to the application, the zone change would allow multiple family housing units to be constructed, which would include apartments and condos, as well as a senior housing complex.
The city states that the purpose of the hearings is to determine if the requests conform to the applicable criteria and arrive at a decision. If moved forward, public hearings would also be scheduled for the Dec. 10 city council meeting.
