City Council Approves Resolution Including City Properties in Potential Meadowbrook Sewer ULID

On February 1, 2022, the North Bend City Council unanimously approved a resolution confirming the inclusion of City-owned properties within a potential Meadowbrook Sewer Utility Local Improvement District (ULID). The sewer network system project area includes most of the western portion of the City limits that is not currently served by sewer and relies on septic systems and associated drain fields.  

The approved resolution authorizes the Mayor to sign a petition to include City-owned properties within a potential Meadowbrook Sewer ULID, provided that (a) the area of the proposed sewer ULID as depicted on the petition includes the City-owned parcels, (b) only after the petition is first signed by the owners of property constituting a majority of the private property within the area of the proposed sewer ULID, and (c) after taking into consideration the expressed desires of private property owners within the ULID area.

This resolution does NOT create the Meadowbrook ULID. Rather, the City felt it was appropriate to make an express commitment prior to consideration of any proposed boundaries which might include City-owned property in this area. City property in the area includes the expansive Meadowbrook Farm and Tollgate Farm Park. If/when the Meadowbrook ULID moves forward, a Public Hearing will be announced at least 30 days beforehand, as required by law. City Council would hear community comments prior to considering any final action.

The Meadowbrook area is an integral part of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. As a property owner led ULID, this proposed sewer improvement project would provide a mix of commercial and residential property owners in this area the opportunity to install sewer or convert aging septic systems to a modern and environmentally sound sewer system. Bringing sewer to the Meadowbrook area is also supported by the City’s Wastewater System Facilities Plan

An installed sewer system would provide individual property owners with development opportunities that better align with zoned uses in the Meadowbrook area, promoting a robust commercial tax base and less reliance on residential property taxes for the City’s operating budget.
