North Bethany Planning open house

Washington County invites interested parties to an Open House on Thursday, August 9, when they will share information and take public comments about progress in the concept planning efforts for North Bethany. The County is planning for new neighborhoods in North Bethany that will include “a thoughtful and attractive variety of homes, businesses, and civic spaces.” North Bethany is an 800-acre area north of Springville Road between 185th Avenue and the Washington County line that is being planned as an organic extension of the existing Bethany community to the south.

Thanks to the input and ideas of hundreds of neighbors, a proposed concept plan has been developed. The concept plan includes several necessary components for building a community of distinction, including parks and trails, neighborhoods and centers, schools and a circulation plan. Other important aspects of the plan include affordable housing and infrastructure needs such as sewer, water and a green approach to storm water drainage. An illustrative plan map will show what the area could look like.

Interested persons may also participate by visiting the online open house between August 9 and August 19, 2007. For more information visit, or contact Angela Brown, Washington County Planning Division at 503-846-3968 or e-mail
