Proposal: This application, Z0176-19-C, was submitted in 2019 and approved by the Hearings Officer on November 19, 2019, for a “recreational use” consisting of three outdoor artificial turf sports fields, an indoor turf training field, and an operational building containing a group training room, a concessions area, restrooms, equipment storage, and staff offices. Other facilities would include parking, an outdoor sports court, picnic area, barbeque area, playground, walking and jogging trials, an ecological observation station, runoff water retention ponds, and a septic field. The approval was based in part on Similar Use Determination from 2017 (Z0487-17-I). A detailed summary of the procedural history associated with this application is provided in the Hearings Officer’s pre-hearing order.
The approval was subsequently appealed to LUBA and the Oregon Court of Appeals. Those appeal resulted in this remand – for the sole purpose of determining whether the proposed use is listed as an allowed use in the RRFF-5 Zoning District, as required by Section 1203.(A) of Clackamas County Zoning and Development Ordinance.
