Creekview Ridge will be the next Bonny Slope West development

The county has approved—with conditions—the plan submitted by Noyes development for the 86-home subdivision south of Laidlaw. This is the second development in Bonny Slope West. Thompson Woods, a 235-home development north of Thompson Road, is currently in the land development phase.

A Neighborhood Meeting was held in March, when the community was shown preliminary plans for the property. Noyes Development Co. submitted their application this summer, and the Approval was mailed on September 29, so we don’t have much more information at this time.

Bonny Slope West is the 2002 addition to the Urban Growth Boundary that was finally transferred from Multnomah to Washington County a few years ago, to facilitate urban development. The county created the Bonny Slope West Subarea Plan in 2015, but decided not to “Master Plan” the area as was done with North Bethany.

There are suggestions in the plan about space for parks, but it’s up to Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District to purchase land for parks. So far, the only public park-like facilities are a trail that will lead to the as-yet undeveloped “Northwest Park” at the corner of Saltzman & Laidlaw.

Creekview path

The county is requiring the trail because the more direct connection would be shorter and safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

A trailhead that will enable a trail to the park is planned as part of Creekview Ridge. The county is requiring the developer to add a trail segment that will span a tributary of Ward Creek to connect Phase 3 with Phase 2, leading to the small private park in that segment. Creekview Ridge will have one small private park that will be maintained by the HOA.

The development site consists of five separate tax lots for a total of 23.11 acres. Steep slopes along the Ward Creek drainage will be left undisturbed. The builder is required to address landslide hazard and other factors to the county’s satisfaction, and is working with geotechnical engineers to make sure that their grading and construction are adequate. Approximately 7.78 acres of the total acreage will be left as open space.

If planning and permitting goes smoothly, the developer plans to break ground in June 2018.
