Winterbrook prepared PGE’s application for a new headquarters operations center in the City of Tualatin. The complex application requires conditional use, variance, design, and architectural review. The project includes a 108,000 square foot office and operations center, a telecommunications tower, and extensive street improvements. Winterbrook worked extensively with Tualatin Planning staff to define the land use process and is conversant with the new structure and language of the City’s development code. Winterbrook facilitated neighborhood outreach and assessed potential impacts on surrounding areas. Winterbrook also coordinated with project architects, civil engineers, transportation analysts, telecommunication tower experts, and electrical engineers. The resources of a diverse project team were applied to the application and the requirements of the Tualatin development code.

Separately, Winterbrook is acting in an on-call services role to gain land use approvals for PGE substations around the Portland region. The first two of these projects are expansions and modernizations of existing facilities located in Hillsboro:

Substations – Brookwood

Services: Permitting, Conditional Use

Winterbrook worked with the electric utility company to gain approval for a major renovation and replacement project for a substation site in Hillsboro. The substation property is on a complex site that abuts a residential neighborhood, a commercial area, and a rail transit corridor. Winterbrook resolved issues related to pedestrian access, landscaping, and stormwater management.

Substations – Main

Services: Permitting, Conditional Use

Winterbrook helped the electric utility company get approval for a major renovation and equipment upgrade at a substation site in Hillsboro. The substation property is a complex site that abuts a church property and across the street from a city park and a residential area. Because of the site’s zoning, the proposal required a neighborhood meeting and a public hearing before the Hillsboro Planning Commission. Ultimately, the project was approved and built.
