Three property owners have requested a change of zoning from the City of Tillamook.
The Tillamook City Council held a formal public hearing at their regular meeting on July 15.
The first is the property requesting a zoning change is the property of the old-Shell station between Main and Pacific Avenue. The request is for the land to be changed from Central Commercial zoning to Parks zoning.
The second request is the parcel of land where the TCCA Farm Store warehouse is located. TCCA has requested a change from Light Industrial to Central Commercial.
“TCCA believes the Central Commercial zone both accommodates current use of the property and is more appropriate for potential future uses,” Jack Mulder director of Engineering wrote in a letter to the City Council.
The last property that has requested a zoning change is a portion of a parcel on Third St owned by the Aufdermauer family. They wish to convert 3.18 acres of their property from Open Space to residential.
“Tillamook is in dire need and we are looking for assistance from the City to help us be a part of the solution in housing development,” Barbara Aufdermauer wrote in a letter. “We are currently working with a company that is seeking to build multiple units on this property; a recent pre-application meeting confirmed that this property is viable in regard to street access, water, and sewer.
The City Council requested that the zone changes be written into an ordinance to be read at future meeting for adoption.
