Today in History
One month after Napoleon Bonaparte’s massive invading
force entered a burning and deserted Moscow, the starving
French army is forced to begin a hasty retreat out of Russia.
The enormous army, featuring more than 500,000 soldiers
and staff, was the largest European military force ever
assembled to that date.

The Keizer Planning Com-
mission turned its attention
to accessory dwelling units
(ADUs) in its meeting Wednes-
day, Oct. 10.
Senior Planner Shane With-
am said the city’s planning de-
partment has fi elded a number
of calls on the topic in recent
months, the result of actions by
the state legislature. In 2017, the
legislature began requiring cit-
ies of a certain size allow ADUs
– think mother-in-law cottag-
es – as one way to alleviate the
strained housing market in the
“We were already compliant,
but the state also issued some
guidelines that we wanted the
commission to look at,” With-
Commissioners were pre-
sented with information about
potential changes, but no rec-
ommendation was made and
a public hearing on the matter
was continued until its Novem-
The new legislation requires
allowing one accessory dwelling
unit per single family residence,
but encourages two. City staff
suggested keeping single-ADU
limit since there has been no
inquiries to add more than that.
Where the legislature sug-
gested a maximum of 850 square
feet or a percentage of the main
residence, it appears Keizer will
keep a 750-square-foot limit
with no percentage attachment.
ADUs also have to incorporate
three design features intended
to keep them from looking like
blank boxes or sheds.
The three areas that garnered
the most attention from mem-
bers of the commission were:
the affect on duplexes, parking
and owner occupancy.
Commissioner Garry Wha-
len said there were not a huge
number of opportunities to add
ADUs on corner lot duplexes,
but if the intent is to increase
overall density, it’s an issue that
should be looked at.
In regard to parking, resi-
dences that add ADUs will be
required to add an additional
parking space if on-street park-
ing is not available.
“Any time we say use street
parking, that concerns me.
There will be questions,” said
Commissioner Hersch Sangster.
Requiring a property owner
to occupy one of the residences
on a given property seemed to
divide members of the commis-
sion, but the overall lean was to-
ward keeping the requirement.
“I am for the requirement
because of the nature of Keizer.
I think you are talking about the
core of Keizer,” Sangster said.
Commissioner Crystal Wil-
liams preferred not to impose
the owner occupancy require-
Director Nate Brown said the
issue was an important one no
matter what the commission
“It boils down to neighbor-
hood character. I think all of
us have had the experience of
going to a neighborhood that
is all rentals. Owners have more
of a commitment to the con-
dition of the neighborhood,”
Brown said. “Those are things
you, as the commission, need to
give some thoughtful discussion
to. They are signifi cant policy
questions we are asking you to

Elementary School lacks pedestrian facil-
ities and there is a gap in the sidewalk on
the north side of Dearborn Avenue. The
streets are also used to access the Keizer
Boys & Girls Club.
Proposed solution: Construct a 10-foot
wide asphalt pathway on the south side
of May Street Northeast which connects
to an existing marked crosswalk at Noren
Avenue. Construct approximately 100 feet
of concrete sidewalk on Dearborn Avenue
Negative impacts: Property owners along
the project corridor will likely have con-
cerns about impacts to parking, but the
existing swale system prevents on street
parking along the project path.
The road ahead: Property owners along
the project corridor will be contacted and
informed of the proposed project during
the design phase. Concerns will be ad-
dressed before work begins.
