    Project Description

    The Cooper Mountain Community Plan will establish a long-term vision for the area’s growth and development to support welcoming, walkable neighborhoods that honor the unique landscape and ensure a legacy of natural resource protection and connection. The area is anticipated to provide at least 3,760 homes, including a mix of single-family and multi-family homes. Annexation and development are not expected to occur until after the planning process is complete.

    The plan will be created with the community. Public engagement will intentionally include historically underserved and underrepresented communities to ensure the project incorporates a broad array of ideas and perspectives.

    Working Project Goals

    • Create equitable outcomes for residents, including historically under served and underrepresented communities.
    • Provide new housing in a variety of housing types and for all income levels.
    • Preserve, incorporate, connect, and enhance natural resources.
    • Improve community resilience to climate change and natural hazards.
    • Provide public facilities and infrastructure needed for safe, healthy communities.
    • Provide safe, convenient access to important destinations while supporting transportation options, including walking and biking.
    • Provide opportunities for viable commercial uses, including places to work and places to buy goods and services.
    • Identify feasible, responsible funding strategies to turn the vision into a reality.

Cooper Mountain is an area recently added to the Metro Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) adjacent to the southwest corner of Beaverton’s city limits. The area, which will eventually be added to Beaverton, is bordered by Grabhorn Road to the west, Tile Flat Road to the south, Kemmer Road and Weir Road to the north, and the existing city limits to the east. The area includes roughly 150 existing residences, agricultural uses and natural areas, as well as Cooper Mountain Nature Park, Winkelman Park, and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) Station 69. The Cooper Mountain Community Plan area is made up of 179 properties totaling 1,232 acres.

Process
