City By Choice

At the September 27th Board meeting a presentation was made by a group called City By Choice.  The purpose of the presentation was to inform the community about changes in the near future to the area we live in.  The scope was around a decision that has been involving Washington County, the Urban Growth Boundary and possible annexation of our area by either Beaverton, Hillsboro or Portland.

The group is also exploring the possibility of forming the area from Cedar Mill to Rock Creek into its own city.  They would like everyone take take a survey on their web site to assist in helping to decide the future of the area we live in.

They will be holding two more COMMUNITY FORUMS to share what we’ve heard and get even more input.
