Planning begins for senior affordable housing across from library

Architect rendering of the senior apartments looking across Dogwood.

Housing prices are high throughout the Portland metro area, and certainly in Cedar Mill and adjacent neighborhoods. Seniors living on fixed incomes are easily priced out of the area. A new 53-unit building and campus offering affordable housing for seniors could help alleviate some of the crunch.

Wildlife in Our Parks

Blacktail deer roam throughout our parks and along stream corridors, and sometimes appear in our yards!

A tree frog croaks in the distance. A banana slug slithers on the ground beside you. You can hear songbirds singing and see a freshly chewed tree stump, evidence of beaver. These are just some of the wildlife sightings you might experience while walking through Jordan Woods Natural Area.
