Life Time selects new location
In May, we reported on a large fitness center proposed for Peterkort Co. property on the north side of Barnes between Cedar Hills Bl. and Valeria View. Last month we learned that Life Time Fitness has decided to develop the center on the SW corner of Barnes and Cedar Hills Bl. instead.
The new location will be accessed from a new road leading off Barnes, where the driveway that currently leads to Si Señor Mexican restaurant is now. There will be a new traffic signal at that location. The entrance will be shared with the restaurant.
We don’t have all the details at this time, but we can assume that Barnes will finally get at least the second westbound travel lane from the Cedar Hills intersection.
Peterkort annexed all their properties into Beaverton, which is handling the approval process. The land will be sold to Life Time. The developers, David Evans and Associates, anticipate submitting the application this month.
Springville and Kaiser road closures, detours
Roads that serve the rapidly expanding North Bethany area will be closed this month for infrastructure work.
Springville Road, west of Kaiser Road, will be closed August 6-23 for installation of underground utilities, road widening and preparations for a traffic signal. The traffic signal will be installed this fall.
The work is funded and managed by West Hills Development and permitted by Washington County.
Two sections of Kaiser Road will be closed on two weekends for culvert replacements. One closure will be between Springville and Brugger roads; the other closure will be between Brugger Road and Ridgeline Street. Dates will be posted to www.wc-roads.com when available.
The culvert replacements are funded and managed by Polygon Northwest Homes and permitted by Washington County.
Neighborhood meetings for proposed development
Neighborhood meetings are required by Washington County as a preliminary step in the land development process. Nearby neighbors, and the CPO, receive mailed notices to meet with developers to learn about plans and make comments. They can often provide information that is helpful in ensuring that neighbors aren’t unduly affected, and also can let developers know about conditions that may not be apparent. Comments made at these meetings are included in the application, and county staff take note of how developers respond to the concerns that are expressed. Anyone may attend.
Once the development application is submitted to the county, a formal comment period is announced. Plans often change slightly between the Neighborhood meeting and the final submission.
CPO 1 is maintaining a Google map to share the information we receive. Find neighborhood meetings, development applications, road projects, and other information to help us all keep track of what’s going on. In addition, Neighborhood Meeting notices are available in the Community Information area of the Cedar Mill Library (NE corner of the Mezzanine).
