Who is in Charge of that Signal? - Update
August 25, 2014
In March, the Land Use Board of Appeals ("LUBA") decided that Washington County could not unilaterally remove a traffic signal from Tualatin Sherwood Road without regard for the City of Sherwood or the adjacent retail property owners. LUBA had sent the case back to Washington County with instructions to sort out the particular relationship between the County and the City, which was not well documented. Washington County appealed to the Court of Appeals, which just agreed with LUBA on all issues.\r\n\r\nThe Court of Appeals decision places the ball back in the Countys court. The county can either try another appeal, this time to the Oregon Supreme Court, or they can attempt to answers LUBAs questions about the precise roles of the City and County with regard to this road and signal. Stay tuned.
