As a member of the Laurelhurst Community (LCC), I/we oppose the proposed comp plan amendment that would change the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) from single-family residential to multi-family for the 18-acre Battelle/Talaris property in Laurelhurst. We ask that you not include this proposed amendment on the policy docket for further review and consideration.

LCC supports responsible redevelopment of the Battelle/Talaris site. This can be accomplished under the single-family code through a planned residential development (PRD). A change in the FLUM map is unnecessary. Clustered single-family residential housing under the PRD provisions would preserve open space and trees and protect the wetlands on the site. PRDs are intended to provide flexibility to enhance and preserve natural features and open space. The property owner insists that the only way to preserve open space and vegetation is through a multi-family designation. This is not true. The owners have not explored a PRD option.

Multi-family housing is inconsistent and incompatible with the single-family character of the Laurelhurst community, the Comprehensive Plan and the criteria for selecting proposed comp plan amendments for further review. I/we urge you to reject the proposed comprehensive plan amendment.
