A pair of public hearings regarding new subdivisions in Keizer will be held Tuesday, April 24, at the Keizer Civic Center.
One of the hearings involves three properties on the west side of 15th Avenue North at Jodelle Court North. The other involves property on the south side of Claggett Street North and east of Kensington Court N.
Both properties would be turned into single-family subdivisions. The hearings begin at 6 p.m. The applicant is Salem-based Trademark Enterprises. A land use hearings officer will determine whether the subdivisions are allowed based on the proposal and relevant testimony submitted before or during the hearing.
The 15th Avenue property includes one previously developed parcel with the address 4881 15th Avenue and adjacent properties on both sides. The 2.5-acre space would be divided into 15 lots ranging in size from 5,000 square feet to 12,114 square feet if the application is approved. The new subdivision would be known as Sterling Meadow.
The 1.64-acre property off Claggett would be subdivided into 10 lots ranging in size from 5,094 square feet to 7,340 square feet. The new subdivision would be known at Snook Grove.
Anyone who wants to speak in support or opposition to the proposed changes can do so during the public hearing. Written comments can be submitted to the Keizer Community Development Department, 930 Chemawa Road N.E., by 4 p.m. the day of the hearing.
