Teufel property to be annexed by Beaverton

At their meeting on December 15, the Beaverton City Council authorized Mayor Rob Drake to negotiate annexation with the Teufel family and Polygon, the proposed developer (see December 2003 Cedar Mill News). Because the property currently has no residents, this can be accomplished without a vote.

When asked about the effect on the Cedar Mill Town Center Plan, Joe Grillo, Beaverton’s Community Development Director, says, “I anticipate that the staff recommendation to the City’s Planning Commission will be to substantially carry forward these conditions into the City’s Comprehensive Plan; in fact we have discussed this with Polygon already as part of our annexation discussions. The City staff has expressed to Polygon the importance of working with the Beaverton School District and the Park District in the overall design of the property; not to mention the need to have the appropriate neighborhood meetings.”

The first neighborhood meeting will be scheduled for sometime in late January, according to MGH Associates, project engineers. Information will be posted on cedarmill.org when it's available.

The transfer to Beaverton won’t affect Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District plans, says Doug Menke, Assistant General Manager. A new trail circling the development will connect with a park planned for the area adjacent to the JQA Young house on Cornell. “We’ve been having very good discussions with Polygon and we anticipate a smooth process,” he says.
