The public comments are still open for the Chevron near Bethany Lake. Please be polite to the County Land Use and Transportation staff reviewing the messages. And feel free to use primary source references, data, and perspectives from our site.
The Public Hearing where a Washington County Hearings Officer will review the application is coming up this Thursday. You can listen in using the call in information in the announcement or Zoom link. Mark your calendar.
If you wish to testify during the hearing you may but please keep it short and polite. Also, if possible, please avoid covering ground someone else has already covered. In order to make a comment you need to email Paul Schaefer at Washington County who is the project planner for the file.
Written or oral testimony is required to be entitled to appeal:
All interested persons may appear and provide written or oral testimony (written testimony may be submitted prior to the hearing but not after the conclusion of the hearing). Only those making an appearance of record (those presenting oral or written testimony) shall be entitled to appeal. Failure to raise an issue in the hearing, in person or by letter, or failure to provide sufficient specificity to afford the Review Authority (Hearings Officer) an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) based on the issue. Those wishing to make an appearance of record should provide their name, address, email, and phone number upon joining the hearing.
The Nov. 11th edition of the Beaverton Times included two Letters to the Editor about the Chevron near Bethany Lake. The letters appeared in the print and online editions.
