History in the News
Wendy Bell, THPRD Park Planner, says that the product of this contract will be a comprehensive document analyzing the elements of the house and grounds, determining how the property will be used, estimating the overall cost of the project, and gathering citizen input.
“These will not be construction documents,” she says. “We need to have a clear understanding of the scope of the project before we can allocate funds and begin the fundraising process.”
The Plan will include proposed park facilities, including a floor plan of the house with usage of the space, and a site plan demonstrating a connection from the house to the old mill site at the creek (near Cedar Mill Falls) and to the east end of the adjacent parking area which the Cedar Mill Bible Church is granting use of.
An Open House meeting will be conducted with local citizens during the summer, and a final public meeting will be held to allow citizens the opportunity to review the draft Plan prior to presentation to the District board for adoption. The process should be completed sometime this fall.
If you would like to be notified about these meetings, contact Wendy Bell at 503-629-6305 ext. 2932, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
More information about the history and current condition of the house is available in back issues of the Cedar Mill News—look in the Subject Index at cedarmill.org/index. The Cedar Mill History book, available at the library, also has much of the house’s story.
