Open house for Metro’s North Tualatin Mountains plan is May 6th

Metro is looking to develop 1,300 acres of hills north of Forest Park. This planning process will determine how best to accomodate various uses — including cycling — on new roads and trails. For more background on this project, see our report from the previous open house in December 2014.

North Tualatin Mountains comprehensive plan community open house
Wednesday, May 6, 2015 – 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Skyline School (11536 N Skyline Blvd)

Metro is hosting another community open house as part of a months-long effort to plan the future of four properties in the North Tualatin Mountains. The four sites – Burlington Creek, Ennis Creek, McCarthy Creek, and North Abbey Creek natural areas – total about 1,300 acres.

Metro is planning how to continue to protect habitat while potentially providing new opportunities for hiking, trail running, off-road cycling, wildlife viewing and other activities. This open house builds on two community open houses in September and December of 2014, where neighbors and community members helped define the values that will shape the plan and discussed opportunities for habitat restoration and recreational activities. Metro staff will share several options for each of the four properties and listen to community feedback about each option. Share your input.

This event is wheelchair accessible.
