TIGARD - The Washington County Board of Commissioners will hold public hearings Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Aug. 1, at 10 a.m. on a petition for the incorporation of Bull Mountain.

On May 30, Bull Mountain Residents for Incorporation filed an economic feasibility statement and a petition with the county to form a new city.

If the commission approves the request, the incorporation petition would be placed on the Nov. 7 ballot.

In a separate vote, the commissioners set public hearings on a land-use ordinance change necessary to establish consistency between the proposed city and the county's Comprehensive Plan. The county Planning Commission will hold a hearing Wednesday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. on this issue; the commissioners are scheduled to hear the ordinance Tuesday, Aug. 1, at 10 a.m.
