Stafford residents to hear proposal about planning the areas future

Special presentation scheduled for tonight

Residents of the Stafford area and those interested in what it might look like in the future are invited to a community meeting tonight.

Clackamas Board of County Commissioners Chairwoman Charlotte Lehan and Borland landowner Rob Fallow are scheduled to make a special presentation about community planning of the area, which forms a rural buffer between Lake Oswego, Tualatin and West Linn.

Ideas and proposals will then be discussed immediately afterward during the Stafford hamlet board meeting.

Development in Stafford has been a contentious topic for at least the past decade, as the area has experienced increasing pressure from regional growth.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. today at Athey Creek Middle School, 2900 S.W. Borland Road in West Linn.
