Eight-lot development on 119th
Thursday, March 11, 6:30 pm, TVF&R Station 50, 8585 NW Johnson St.
Pioneer Development Group is proposing an eight-lot subdivision at 1700 NW 119th Avenue. Neighborhood meetings provide a forum for the applicant and surrounding property owners/residents to review the proposal and identify issues so that they may be considered before the formal application is turned in to the county. Plans presented are preliminary and may be altered before submission.
For more information, contact Wayne Hayson, firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-643-8286.

The Beaverton Planning Commission will review the J. Peterkort & Co. application to build a 460-stall paid parking lot adjacent to the Sunset Transit Center. Read more in last month’s News.
Cedar Mill Town Center Plan
During our February 12 CPO 1 meeting, we discussed the need to revisit the Cedar Mill Town Center Plan. This plan was written in the 1980s, and has never been updated, aside from a few “housekeeping” changes. Erin Wardell, Principal Planner, Transportation Planning, LUT Planning and Development Services, discussed transportation aspects of the Plan. There was general agreement among CPO members that the plan isn’t serving us well.
However, Washington County is not likely to address the situation, as we learned from the newly-elected Chair of the County Board of Commissioners at the February meeting of CCI, the leadership group of all county CPOs.
One suggestion that’s been discussed for years is to form a new Urban Service District to provide additional planning and community services to our urban unincorporated area. Funding, even for a study of this possibility, won’t come from the county, we’re told. A group may be forming to explore other ways of proceeding—perhaps by partnering with the Portland State University’s Urban Planning department. Anyone interested in following up is encouraged to contact Virginia Bruce, email@example.com.
