“Main Street” planning begins for North Bethany

North Bethany Main Street area

Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT) is starting the Urban Design Plan (UDP) process for the 13-acre North Bethany Main Street area. The commercial/mixed use development in this Main Street area will serve the residents with stores and offices.

Development can’t move forward until this planning process is done. Much of the residential area is already under construction, so the timing is right in order to complete the community.

A North Bethany Main Street Project Advisory Committee (PAC) is also being convened. The PAC is composed of representatives from CPO 7, development interests, and service agencies, including THPRD—a key player since an east community park on Kaiser Road is in the Main Street area. A series of three PAC meetings will begin later this fall and continue through spring 2018.

Otak Inc. is the consultant for the project. The UDP will include design and dimensional standards for the Main Street area, including building orientation and setbacks, building height limits, building articulation and façade treatments, locational requirements for off-street parking and loading, and streetscape elements. 

There will be two public open houses – one in late fall/early winter 2017, and another in spring 2018. Long Range Planning staff hope to file a land use ordinance for adoption of the North Bethany Main Street Urban Design Plan in spring. Once the ordinance is in effect, development applications for properties in the North Bethany Main Street area can be accepted.
