The City council will hold a hearing on the new Petrosa Subdivision Plan on February 5th, 7 p.m. in the Council chambers. The purpose of the Petrosa Master Planned Development is to implement the policies in Chapter 11 Growth Management of the Bend Comprehensive Plan (BCP) regarding the Northeast Edge (Butler Market Village) Expansion Area, and to create a new, creative, innovative, and complete community that sets the stage for future urban growth within the Expansion Area. The development standards will:
Create the opportunity for a complete community, with housing in close proximity to employment and commercial services that are scaled to serve the frequent needs of neighborhood and area residents.
Provide a mix of housing types for owners and renters of multiple lifestyles and income levels including workforce housing with higher density abutting collector or arterial streets, commercial lands, and/or open space.
Implement BCP Policy 11-59 by ensuring capacity for a minimum of 1,100 housing units within the Expansion Area, including at least 110 single-family attached housing units and at least 440 multifamily and duplex/triplex housing units.
As part of the City Council's goal to create 3,000 new housing units by June 2021, the City is reviewing a new subdivision master plan for East Bend. The 173 acre tract bordered by Butler Market and Deschutes Market roads would have a mix of single family, townhomes and apartments. A corner of the site will have commercial space. There is to be a community park area and a site for a future school.
Among the design standards are changes to set backs and lot sizes. Similar standards have been allowed at Lava Ridges off of Empire and Bridges in Southeast Bend.
