Goal 13 states "to conserve energy." The City of Maywood Park, by using land use planning as one tool for controlling land uses, has attempted to maximize the conservation of all forms of energy. Maywood Park land use regulations encourage the efficient use of energy sources and supplies. The City is not a direct producer or supplier of energy resources. Because Maywood Park is fully developed and there are no plans for annexation, the energy possibilities are limited. There is potential for solar and wind energy development in the residential areas of Maywood Park. Maywood Park's energy sources and annual energy consumption patterns are:






Pacific Power & Light Co.

3.977 (million kwh/1985)

Fuel Oil5

Various private companies

339.12(1,000 gals./1976)

101,717 therms (1985)

(1 therm=100,000 BTUs)

6Data from Northwest Natural Gas Company, 1986.

Pacific Power & Light Company and Northwest Natural Gas Company indicate continued ample availability of electricity and natural gas to the area in the foreseeable future.

Maywood Park's existing pattern of land use is generally energy efficient. The City's residential area is located near Northeast 102nd Avenue and Prescott Street, the principal access streets. The day care center and the Mt. Hood Community College, Maywood Park Campus are also located at either 102nd Avenue or Prescott Street. The entire City is within walking distance of the principal access streets.

The lack of commercial and employment opportunities in the area encourage commuting to distant employment centers. The area's energy can be further conserved by utilizing the Tri-Met bus routes and the lightrail when it is completed.
