Is Our School District Adequately Planning for Growth?


As more and more roofs materialize along the horizon, we're forced to question the practicality of such rapid growth; how well can our community actually support or, just as importantly, plan for this hyperactive development? 

Growth is expected and needed in a healthy community, but so are adequate support services... With the recent growth in our area, we’ve begun to see some rising complications and how they have been affecting our school system. Virginia Bruce addresses these issues in her article “Is the Beaverton School District Planning Adequately for Growth In our Area?” Bruce exposes the contributing factors to the district’s problem; she discusses the lack of coordination between urban service providers, faulty planning through the use of outdated data, a questionable use of school funds, and the continued allowance of heavy development.

Market of Choice Opening at Timberland Town Center January 15th!

Market of Choice, the anchor store of the not-open-just-yet Timberland Town Center, is scheduled to start welcoming customers Jan. 15.

The Timberland location is the ninth for the family-owned business and will offer natural, organic, local and conventional choices at a competitive price, said Lyn Ryse, Market of Choice advertising manager.

"We carry both natural organic and conventional groceries and we put them all on the same shelves side-by-side so customers can decide ... We're all about choice," Ryse said.

Throughout the store, Market of Choice will feature food stations offering freshly baked goods, specialty cheeses, and a full-service meat and seafood department. Bakers and chefs will work the kitchen daily, making take-away meals such as sandwiches and pizza. A beer and wine shop will have a large selection of wines and beers, and will also feature a growler station and wine bar.

Additionally, customers who choose to dine at Market of Choice will have the option of outdoor or indoor seating in the two-story, 40,000-square-foot building.

Timberland Town Center, which currently has more than 15 signed tenants, is located north of U.S. 26, just off Northwest Barnes Road at Northwest Lost Springs Terrace in the community of Cedar Mill.

Potential Redevelopment of Milltowner I to Offer More Amenities to Cedar Mill Residents

Stay tuned for a possible redevelopment/expansion of the shopping center at the northeast corner of Saltzman and Cornell. Plans are set to include one large anchor tenant and several smaller buildings surrounding the parking area. The current center only utilizes part of the property and Architect Patrick Tiland is heading up the design initiative to plan for multiple public spaces suitable for people to meet and enjoy outdoor dining. Included in the plans are improvements to the existing library building as well as the parking lot.

The idea is to appeal to the needs of Cedar Mill residents, retail establishments and restaurants. With the buzz surrounding our improving economy, one of the property owners Ken Findley stated “The time is right for this...We’ve been talking about it for a while, but the economy is better now and it’s time for the community to get the kind of center we deserve.”

The behind the scenes work to create and submit plans is underway, however it will most likely be a couple of years until the actual work begins. Plans so far include retail space facing the street and two story building at one of the corners.

Walgreens will be moving to their property at the SW corner of Murray and Cornell, but not word yet on the other tenant's plans.
