Late-Breaking CPO Member Issues
These issues came to the CPO 1 Steering Committee after the official newsletter was published. Each will be given 10 minutes at the end of the meeting to present their issue and offer an opportunity to be involved:
Beaverton School District Boundary Changes
BSD is realigning school boundaries in preparation for the new high school. The end date for the process is in March 2016. BSD Representatives will visit CPO 1 prior to that date for a full presentation. Local parent Jennifer Alger will introduce the topic which may be of interest: the initially proposed "springboard" map realigns boundaries between Hwy 26 and Cornell Road.

NW Saltzman Road Realignment
NW Saltzman Road, at the north end south of the intersection with NW Laidlaw Road, is legendary for its lack of safety. The county’s solution realigns the road to the west, and will cost an estimated $11.2 million. An interim plan calls for $1.2 million for sidewalks and bike lanes. A group of neighbors has come together to form the Bethany Neighborhood Coalition (BNC). Members of the group will present the details of the need to realign Saltzman Road and will discuss possible strategies. The BNC is composed of local residents, business owners & organizations. The Bethany area has seen high growth in residential development in the past 20 years but they argue not a proportionate level of infrastructure investments by the County and State to create a safe, vibrant community through the creation of better roadways, sidewalks, bike lanes and trails.

The Willamette Water Supply Program is planning to develop an additional source of water from the mid-Willamette River at Wilsonville. This project will expand the Willamette River Water Treatment Plant and add pipelines and storage to serve communities in Washington County. Several pipeline route alternatives are being considered. Construction in most areas will not begin for several years.

The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has purchased about 1.7 acres from the Beaverton School District. The property on the west side of William Walker Elementary School at 11940 SW Lynnfield Lane is adjacent to the park and will be used to expand and improve the park. THPRD and school district leaders signed an intergovernmental agreement last year that addresses shared access, shared parking and other issues besides the property sale. THPRD’s plan includes two full-size, multipurpose, synthetic turf sports fields with lights; a splash pad water play area; play equipment; permanent restrooms; a picnic area; walking path; and a community garden. Redevelopment will be funded by THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2016 and finish by Spring 2017.
