TVF&R Seeks Zone Change to Allow Sale of Property Under Residential Designation
Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) is seeking an amendment to the Bethany Community Plan for the recently decommissioned fire station located at 3260 NW 147th Place. The amendment would change the designation from Institutional (INST) to Residential (R-6), for the purpose of listing the property for sale and subsequent residential use. The designation change to R-6 will match the zoning of all the surrounding residential properties. TVF&R recently completed construction of Fire Station 68 at 13545 NW Evergreen to meet growing population service needs of the area. Fire protection services are no longer provided at the old fire station located on NW 147th Place. TVF&R representatives will attend the February 26th meeting of the CPO 7 Steering Committee – all neighbors are welcome to attend.
