Aloha Tomorrow - Project Information

 

Background

Washington County led the three-year (2011–2014) Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan (A-R Study) that looked at land use zoning regulations, transportation, housing and other livability topics within the unincorporated Aloha and Reedville communities. The community engagement resulted in almost 5,000 individual comments providing insights into the aspirations, needs and issues of these two diverse communities.


That study was coordinated with a TV Highway Corridor study led by Oregon Department of Transportation and the cities of Beaverton and Hillsboro (also partners in the A-R Study) along with the County. This planning effort focused on the future design and use of TV Highway, short- and long-term safety improvements and identified key intersections for improvement to support current and future vehicle movement.

In 2015 Washington County staff applied for a Metro Community Planning and Development Grant (CPDG) to continue focus on both the town center area surrounding 185th Avenue and TV Highway and on alternatives for future investment in higher-capacity transit along the corridor. This project will concentrate on the area roughly from 160th Avenue on the east to Cornelius Pass Road on the west, Johnson Street on the north and Blanton Street on the south

The Metro CPDG awarded $400,000 for an 18-month planning effort. Of that, $300,000 will go toward consultant fees (providing specific technical skills), $25,000 engages a partnership with two community nonprofits (Community Housing Fund and Unite Oregon) and $75,000 is applied to staff time and expenses. Washington County provides a guaranteed minimum match of $45,000 in staff time.
