Public invited to event at Scholls Heights school on Thursday
The city of Beaverton continues the planning process for the South Cooper Mountain annexation area with a final open house on Thursday, July 24, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Scholls Heights Elementary School, 16400 S.W. Loon Drive. The public is encouraged to attend and provide feedback on the draft recommendations.
The City Council passed a resolution in April for a Preferred Concept Plan Scenario for South Cooper Mountain developed from parts of earlier alternatives that were shared at an open house in February. The scenario incorporated feedback from the projects Technical and Citizen Advisory committees before it was recommended to the council.
The project team is preparing a draft concept plan that describes the overall vision and planning strategies for the 544-acre area of South Cooper Mountain the city annexed in January 2013.
Draft community plans have also been prepared for this area as well as for North Cooper Mountain, 510 acres on the north end of the planning area. The plans provide comprehensive plan policies and recommendations for land use, transportation connections, natural resource protection, zoning code ideas and infrastructure funding.
Copies of the draft Community Plans are available for review at BeavertonOregon.gov/SouthCooperPlan. The draft concept plan will also be posted prior to the open house.
Comments on the documents will be accepted through Thursday, July 31, and additional opportunities will be provided at public hearings later this year.
Additional project details and an interested-parties signup form are also available at BeavertonOregon.gov/SouthCooperPlan.
