CPO News July 2024

After our introduction and Service Provider updates, Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Josh Wilson, Traffic Safety Unit, will explain how WCSO enforces traffic safety, areas of concern within CPO 1, and how community members can report issues and help improve traffic safety in our neighborhoods.

Then we’ll hear from Tangerine Behere with Ride Connection, which is currently planning a new shuttle service in the Bethany and Cedar Mill area connecting PCC Rock Creek Campus and the communities of Bethany and Cedar Mill to the Sunset Transit Center. See the route they’re planning, learn about the target ridership, and share your comments. 

Bring your questions for both presenters, there will be time after each one. After these presentations we’ll share any development information we have received and provide time for announcements from CPO members.

You now have the choice of meeting online via zoom, or in person in the East Community Room at Cedar Grove Apartments at the corner of Murray and Cornell. If you are driving, please either park on the street or in the southeast corner of the Safeway lot. If you can’t attend the meeting, it is recorded and available on YouTube for viewing later.

CPO 7 July meeting cancelled, they might meet in August.

High Street Residential, the applicant for the proposed mixed-use development, has asked for a two-year extension of the Beaverton decision to approve the application in September 2022. The development would replace some of the existing Cedar Hills Shopping Center near the intersection of Highway 217 and the Sunset Highway, across the Sunset from the Transit Center. No changes to the design are expected: it would consist of a 4700 square foot ground floor commercial space and 400 attached dwelling units. The existing building housing the DMV and Harbor Freight will remain unchanged. The public comment period has ended and the decision, expected at the end of June, will be published here

The first Middle Housing proposal in Cedar Mill is a four-lot development adjacent to NW 113th opposite Melody Lane. The development will create four lots on a 0.59 acre site via the expedited Middle Housing Land Division process, and build four detached “quadplexes” on the existing undeveloped lot. 

A Washington County Hearings Officer will review the request to approve the seven-lot attached unit subdivision, including modification of the sight distance requirements and a Type III review of the Design Principles in a Transit Oriented District. Interested parties may attend virtually and testify.

The June meeting covered Middle Housing basics, with Anne Kelly, Senior Planner, Washington County Land Use & Transportation. The video of the meeting is on YouTube, here. The presentation begins at about three minutes into the recording and extends to about 40 minutes in, when we heard from our Service Providers and shared CPO updates.
