Bring the whole family and enjoy this free event! Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District (THPRD) is holding its third annual concert in Cedar Mill Park on Tuesday, August 1, from 6-8 pm. Last year’s event drew over 600 but there’s plenty of room for many more!!


History in the News
Bonny Slope–pioneers, bootleggers and developers

“Basically, the boundaries of Bonny Slope remain as they were originally platted by Western Oregon Farms, a development company, in 1931,” writes Ms. Frost.


Featured Business
Cedar Mill Chiropractic

When Jordan Stockton was a kid, he was athletic and enjoyed playing sports. When he realized that he wouldn’t have a professional future in sports, he decided that he could work with athletes if he became a chiropractor. “Now, I couldn’t care less about athletics, but I love being a chiropractor,” he says.


Area 93:Urban Growth expansion on Cedar Mill’s northeast margin

In 2002 Metro, our regional agency responsible for setting the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), added a 159 acres of land adjacent to Bonny Slope, but just over the Multnomah County line, into the “urban” area (see map). It was among 20 parcels added in the unprecedented 18,867-acre expansion.



The future of Bonny Slope

I have been advocating for Oregon’s land use laws and watching the effects since the early 1980’s. I expect obvious rationales for choices made to expand the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB).
