South Hillsboro meeting set

The city of Hillsboro is inviting Hillsboro community members to participate in a third and final community meeting to create a plan for the future of South Hillsboro. The meeting will be Thursday, June 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Rosedale Elementary School cafeteria, 3963 S.W. 229th Avenue.

Open house participants can review and comment on the proposed land use and development plan, location and design of major roads, parks and trails, village and town centers, examples of housing and other development types, phasing of key capital and transportation improvements and the next steps toward adoption.

The city of Hillsboro, in partnership with property owners and project partners and community members, is preparing a master plan for South Hillsboro. The plan builds on the South Hillsboro Community Plan adopted by the city council in 2012. The South Hillsboro area is 1,400 acres of homes, farms and open space. As envisioned in the community plan, over time, South Hillsboro will become a complete residential community, providing a variety of housing to meet the needs of current and future residents.

“We appreciate how many residents have participated so far, and encourage everyone to stay involved as we finalize the Master Plan,” said Jeannine Rustad, project manager.

Community members are welcome to drop by at any time, and all ages are welcome. Those who are unable to attend in person can visit the project website at hillsboro-oregon.gov/SouthHillsboro.

Comments gathered will be used to update recommended amendments to the South Hillsboro Community Plan, Hillsboro Comprehensive Plan and Community Development Code. Final recommendations will be made through a series of work sessions and hearings with the planning commission and city council in fall 2014.
