West Linn Unanimously Approves Upgrades

West Linn Unanimously Approves Upgrades

On February 11, the West Linn City Council unanimously voted to uphold Lake Oswego’s appeal for a land use permit. The Council’s action reverses the West Linn Planning Commission’s denial in November 2012.

This land use approval allows upgrades to Lake Oswego’s water treatment plant and pipelines to meet modern safety standards and add capacity to serve both Lake Oswego and Tigard into the future. Lake Oswego’s facilities also provide an emergency backup water supply to West Linn. This decision is a major step toward addressing the long-term water needs of Lake Oswego, Tigard and West Linn.

Construction begins this summer on the river intake pump station in Gladstone, along the Clackamas River.

The homes on the Partnership’s property are dilapidated and can no longer be used for residential purposes. While the Partnership is still awaiting a land use decision from the West Linn City Council regarding the water treatment plant and pipelines, house deconstruction is independent of that land use decision.
