Aloha Tomorrow


Aloha Tomorrow Open House Materials

Aloha Tomorrow Open House imageAloha community members have helped Washington County project staff identify land use and transportation needs in Aloha including:

  • Improvements  to the commercial area at 185th Avenue and TV Highway,

  • Transit-related improvements along TV Highway, and

  • The desire to make Alexander Street a welcoming place for people walking and biking.

An Aloha Tomorrow Open House was held Tuesday April 18, 2017 to gather feedback on concepts developed by the Aloha Tomorrow project team. The following are links to the displays at that Open House:

Aloha Tomorrow Background

The Aloha community’s vision for the future includes several prominent themes, based on the results of the recent Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan. The community vision includes:

  • Highlighting its diversity of cultures
  • Providing a place to gather to celebrate
  • Creating a community identity
  • Establishing a community “gateway”

You and other community members noted that you want to be able to walk or ride a bicycle safely, allow your children to walk or ride to school and have options to walk, ride or take transit to meet your needs and commute to work. There is also a desire for transit that is convenient, reliable and accessible.

Aloha Tomorrow is another step closer to achieving these goals. Building upon the results of earlier planning efforts, our project team will work with you, other community members, property and business owners, developers and partner agencies to continue refining the land uses for an achievable Town Center – roughly defined as the area around 185th Avenue and Tualatin Valley (TV) Highway.

Key elements of this part of the process include:

  • Identifying ways to reduce development regulation barriers to private investment.
  • Crafting guidance with community support for how future buildings relate to the roads, sidewalks, parking and bicycling.
  • Conceptualizing how Alexander Street could provide a buffer between businesses and housing that is inviting to people walking and bicycling.

TV Hwy Bus StopTV Highway is an important corridor for the community, surrounding cities and Washington County. It serves people driving, freight movement, busses and people walking and riding bicycles. This project will focus on developing alternatives for more efficient, reliable and higher-capacity transit service in the study area with an emphasis on how those alternatives could improve transit throughout the TV Highway corridor from Beaverton to Forest Grove.

The alternatives will include considerations of how to provide viable alternatives to driving, take into account safer crossings to get to transit stops (both funded and planned), take advantage of recent improvements at 185th and TV Highway intersection and identify potential intersections where transit stop improvements could provide more services, convenience, safety and accessibility.

 

The project will provide opportunities for you to continue participating, providing comments and sharing with your friends, neighbors and co-workers. It is your community, and this project is another step closer to helping you achieve your vision.

Please join us for the journey, and see ways to become involved.
