Over the last 18 months, the City of Beaverton has engaged area residents in concept planning for the Cooper Mountain area, which includes the South Cooper Mountain Annexation Area (in the City) as well as the North Cooper Mountain area and an Urban Reserve area that separates the two (unincorporated). Currently, planning work specific to the North Cooper Mountain area is transitioning from Beaverton to Washington County.
Washington County is developing community plan alternatives to guide the development of the North Cooper Mountain area. Amendments to the county’s Comprehensive Plan to address the North Cooper Mountain planning effort are expected to be considered by the County’s Planning Commission and Board of Commissioners in 2015.
For more information about the project, including a description of the Cooper Mountain Planning Area and Cooper Mountain Concept Plan, and to provide your input online, go to the PROJECT WEBSITE.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.
