Join your neighbors as we celebrate SOLV’s annual “Washington County Clean & Green,” October 16th, 9am to 1pm. We will be restoring natural areas of Jackie Husen Park by removing invasive Himalayan blackberry and English ivy (not wheelchair accessible). The park is located at 10955 NW Reeves, just east of 113th.
If you can, please bring a shovel, set of loppers and heavy-duty work gloves, although some equipment will be available. Youth groups are welcome. Refreshments will be provided. For information, call Melissa Higgins at 503/629.6305 x 2953 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To register, visit www.solv.org.
On September 30, 2004, the Beaverton Planning Commission unanimously approved Polygon Homes’ application for the giant development to be built on the Teufel Nursery property between Barnes and Cornell. Construction may begin as early as March 2005, according to Polygon Vice President Fred Gast.
Background information on the Teufel development is available on our website at cedarmill.org/teufel
The Cedar Hills-Cedar Mill Community plan shows the county’s long-term vision for this and other development in our area. There’s a link to it on the same page.
Library reopens on Sundays
With a spirit of optimism, the Cedar Mill Community Library reopened on Sunday afternoons this month. If fundraising can be sustained, the library should be able to keep its hours intact until the next fiscal year. Inquire at the library for ways you can donate or help out.

The Cedar Mill History Project got off to a good start last month with a meeting on September 23. We viewed a web presentation on various components of the project. It is available at cedarmill.org/history-project
We decided to meet monthly. The next meeting is on Thursday evening, October 21, 6:30 pm in the library’s Community Room. We welcome anyone who’d like to get involved, and we’d love to include the “old-timers’ in the community–folks who have been in the area since the ‘60’s or earlier.
The Oral History part of the project will commence this month with the help of John Wickham’s video students at Stoller Middle School. Students will interview and tape long-time residents at the school’s studio. Individual videos will be available at the library. Then the interviews will be used, along with historical photos, to compile “Ken Burns-style” productions to be aired on cable, copied to DVD for the library, to show at the JQA Young house once it’s been renovated, and for sale to raise money for the project.
We’ll highlight other parts of the project in future issues of CM News. If you don’t want to wait, visit the website and/or come along to our next meeting. For information call Virginia Bruce at 503-629-5799, email@example.com
