Ordinance

Rename SW Westpoint Ct to SW West Point Ct on Multnomah County Assessor map to match existing addresses and to match an existing street name sign

Passed

The City of Portland ordains: 

Section 1.   The Council finds:

  1. SW Westpoint Court is a cul-de-sac street of less than 200 feet in length east of SW Montgomery Drive, with four (4) properties carrying site addresses for this street.
     
  2. SW West Point Terrace is the street name used by the U.S. Postal Service and the Bureau of Emergency Communications (BOEC) and is included on Multnomah County Assessor Map 1S1E04BA.
     
  3. Multnomah County Division of Assessment, Recording & Taxation (DART) contacted the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) on August 1, 2023 inquiring about a discrepancy in the street name.   DART uses “Westpoint” because SW Westpoint Court was dedicated by the plat of Westpoint.
     
  4. On August 2, 2023 DART indicated its preference for the street name to be SW West Point Court, and sought the assistance of PBOT in changing the street name from SW Westpoint Court to SW West Point Court.
     
  5. The proposed street name of SW West Point Court matches current addressing of 1730 SW West Point Court, 1740 SW West Point Court, 1750 SW West Point Court and 1760 SW West Point Court.  None of these site addresses will be amended by this Ordinance, and the existing street name sign will not need to be changed.

NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:

  1. SW Westpoint Terrace is renamed to SW West Point Terrace upon passage of this Ordinance.
  2. The Bureau of Development Services retains the authority to change any address number of SW West Point Terrace properties as may be necessary to correct any mistake in previously assigning the address number.

An ordinance when passed by the Council shall be signed by the Auditor. It shall be carefully filed and preserved in the custody of the Auditor (City Charter Chapter 2 Article 1 Section 2-122)
