Public hearing planned on WalMart proposal

The hearing for a proposed new WalMart shopping center will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Hillsboro Civic Center.

According to Colin Cooper, planning director for the Hillsboro Planning Department, this event will be a public hearing where citizens can provide testimony in favor, opposed or neutral on the proposed WalMart.

Under consideration is the so-called “Sequoia Village” development, a mixed-use project that would be anchored by a 50,000 square foot WalMart “neighborhood market.” The development would be at the intersection of West Baseline Road and Southwest Cornelius Pass Road — specifically, the address is given as 21575 W. Baseline Road. A mall that includes Albertson’s is on the other side of the intersection.

The project is being proposed by PacLand, a Portland developer.

City officials do not yet know if further hearings on the WalMart proposal will be held.

“Whether there is more than one hearing is dependent upon how this hearing proceeds,” Cooper said.
