• NEW ATHEY CREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL ON DOLLAR STREET – PROJECT UPDATE

    Posted by West Linn - Wilsonville School District on 8/19/2021

    Entry Rendering

    Land Use documents were submitted to the City Planning Department in March and the initial Completeness was received on April 16th.  The Land Use process has continued over the summer with the initial hearing, followed by subsequent hearings and findings.  The final hearing was held on August 18th which ended in a vote by the Planning Commission.  The Planning Commissioners voted to approve the application with conditions.

    Updated conceptual renderings of the main entry, as shown above, as well as the bus entry and interior spaces can be found in the project image slideshow as well as here, below.

    The project documents have been completed and submitted to the Building Department for Permit.  The District has received the first round of comments back from the Building Department and is responding.  It is anticipated that the Permitting and Land Use processes will converge in a timely manner to allow Contractor bidding to begin in the fall.

    The District has engaged with a Furnishings Fixtures & Equipment (FF&E) vendor and has begun the process of furniture selection.  These selections are all based on the final interior color palette selections, which were also finalized over the summer.

    The District continues to partner with City of West Linn in developing Street Improvements surrounding the site.  Street improvements will occur on Dollar Street, Willamette Falls Drive, and the newly created Brandon Place Extension.  Final coordination efforts are nearing completion to allow right of way improvements to be submitted to the City in the fall.

  • Final Community Engagement Meeting Scheduled for Jan. 27

    Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 1/4/2021 4:00:00 PM

    Dear Neighbors,

    3J Consulting acts on behalf of the West Linn-Wilsonville School District regarding a proposal for the New Athey Creek Middle School at the Dollar Street site. The new middle school is part of the 2019 Capital Bond Program which was approved by West Linn-Wilsonville voters in November 2019. The school property is located at 945 Dollar Street. The property can be legally identified as tax lots 21E34DC00900 and 21E34C00600. The site is zoned R-10 or Single Family Residential. The location of the proposed project is shown on the attached map.

    Before finalizing an application to the City's Planning Department for the proposed improvements, we would like to engage in an additional meeting with the members of the Willamette Neighborhood Association, property owners residing within 500 feet of the property, and the broader West Linn-Wilsonville community. This meeting will be hosted by the West Linn-Wilsonville School District using the virtual ZOOM meeting platform.  

    You are invited to attend a VIRTUAL ZOOM meeting on:

    Wednesday, January 27th, 2021 at 6:00pm

    The meeting will be held via a web-based meeting platform

    facilitated by the West Linn Wilsonville School District   

    The purpose of these meetings is to provide a forum for community members to review the proposal and identify issues so they can be given proper consideration.  We invite you to join us, review the preliminary plans, and share any special information you may have about the property. The project team will answer questions related to how the project meets the relevant development standards consistent with West Linn's land use regulations.

    If you would like to attend this web-based meeting, we would invite you to visit the District’s website.  We look forward to discussing the proposal with you. If you have questions on how to participate in the proposed meeting, please contact us at mercedes.serra@3j-consulting.com or (503) 946-9365x211.

    Design

    Focus Groups have been conducted with current Athey staff members. Staff reviewed the layout of future classrooms and specialty spaces at the New Athey Creek Middle School. Feedback is being incorporated into the design and specific needs of all departments are being considered.

    Land Use

    The Land Use Pre-Application meeting with the City was held on Nov.18th.   In addition, the required Neighborhood Association meeting was conducted.

    Site Reports

    The Environmental Reports, Geotechnical Report, and Traffic Survey have been uploaded to the bond website for public viewing. The Wetland Delineation Report and Archaeological Survey are being reviewed by the State.

    Community

    The location of the building on the site, exterior finishes, traffic concerns, and consultant reports were reviewed with the Community in two separate meetings, one in October and one in November. Members of the community were provided two Q&A sessions to have concerns and questions addressed in a live format.

    Next Steps

    The current design phase is scheduled for completion mid-January and the formal Land Use Application is planned for submission in February
