Voters rebuff annexation efforts
By a 2 to 1 margin, voters say no to including land along Beavercreek Road
Voters soundly defeated an effort to annex 114 acres along Beavercreek Road into Oregon City, a move that would have paved the way for a mixed-use development.
Voters rebuffed the effort by a two to one margin. The land, owned by the Herberger family, is the home of the Oregon City Golf Club. The land was brought into the Metro Urban Growth Boundary in the late 1970s, and is now part of Oregon City's Beavercreek Road Concept Plan Area.
The plan outlines development in a 434 acre area along the Beavercreek Road area.
