been successful with public
utility internet service.
City Manager Chris Eppley
took issue with Juran’s take on
the Monmouth-Independence
network.
“Comcast wasn’t looking at
coming out there for a really
long time. And it took a while
for the system to begin paying
for itself,” Eppley said.
Mayor Cathy Clark said cre-
ating competition for private
businesses was a concern.
“Businesses in our commu-
nity don’t expect us to compete
against them,” she said.
Councilor Amy Ryan coun-
tered that creating more com-
petition was healthy for the
marketplace and she knew of
many customers unhappy with
their current services.
Councilor Laura Reid add-
ed that a public utility internet
could be a boon for Keizer stu-
dents.
“There is a digital divide
with some students not having
access to the internet at home,
and more and more assign-
ments are internet-required,”
said Reid, who is a teacher at
McNary High School.
Feb. 11 and 12 at
Willamette HS
The Willamette Humane Society will host its fi rst-ever
Full Hearts, Empty Kennels no-fee adoption event on
Feb. 11 and 12.
The shelter is located at 4246 Turner Road S.E. in Sa-
lem, and it will be open to the public from noon to 6 p.m.
during the event weekend.
Adoption fees for both cats and dogs waived. There
will also be raffl e prizes and giveaways, pet food and treat
samples from NutriSource, and free workshops for pet
owners.
The workshops for the Full Hearts, Empty Kennel
event will include:
• Disaster Preparedness for Your Pets scheduled for
both days from 3 to 3:30 p.m. Attendees will learn how
to incorporate pets into family emergency preparedness
planning and put together a pet-friendly disaster.
• Forever Home: Supporting Your Newly Adopted Pet
scheduled both days from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The work-
shop will take new adoptions step-by-step through har-
moniously integrating a new pet into the household and
establishing a loving bond.
Additional shelter staff and volunteers will be on-site
to facilitate meet-and-greets, answer questions, and guide
new pet parents through the adoption process. Adopting
families will be required to complete Willamette Humane
Society’s standard adoption application and screening. For

SAFEWAY: Code change is
the beginning of process
(Continued from Page A1)
property owner maintains that the nature of
the grocery business has changed, and has
committed to city staff that the purpose and
intent of the Keizer Development Code can still
be maintained through specifi c limitations and
mitigations that they are willing to construct.”
The willingness of Safeway to pay for
additional traffi c mitigation was one reason
Councilor Roland Herrera voiced support for
lifting the overlay zone.
Mayor Cathy Clark took issue with the out-
of-date traffi c counts used in the proposal and
thought the new counts “would make it hard
to work,” but that wasn’t her main objection
or reason for casting the sole vote against the
change.
“My biggest concern goes back to the vision
of River Road Renaissance. I’m concerned that
if we let go of this vision now, we won’t get it
back,” Clark said.
The River Road Renaissance plan was
drafted in 2009 and set forth a vision of River
Road that addressed everything from the look
of storefronts to the paths of sidewalks.
Even before the plan was fi nalized, several
efforts were made to bring some of the ideas
to fruition in the mid-2000s, but the prevailing
winds died with onset of The Great Recession.
Councilor Amy Ryan suggested the council
look forward rather than backward.
“The Renaissance vision hasn’t progressed. I
don’t see interest in that and I would hate to
limit a business that is looking to expand,” Ryan
said.
The 5-1 vote lifted the prohibition on
gas stations at the intersection, which means
the issue will most likely be taken up again
at a future meeting of the Keizer Planning
Commission.
Once planning commissioners craft a
recommendation, the council will take it under
consideration and hold a public hearing on the
matter for the public to voice consent or dissent.
