Four Aloha-Reedville Study community events in October and November

For Immediate Release Friday, October 04, 2013

Sponsored by: Department of Land Use & Transportation , Planning & Development Services Division

Based on the 5,000+ public comments provided to the Aloha-Reedville Study's project team so far, we have developed a series of draft actions to address community concerns and aspirations.

Join us at one of the following events to review the draft actions and talk with the project team. We're asking one question: "Will these actions move Aloha and Reedville forward in a manner you can support?"

  • Tuesday, October 15 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Aloha High School, 18850 SW Kinnaman Road, Aloha

  • Friday, October 25 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Westside Community Church, 18390 SW Farmington Road, Aloha (this is a Spanish language event)

  • Tuesday, October 29 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Reedville Elementary School, 2695 SW 209th Avenue, Reedville

  • Thursday, November 14 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Willow Creek Campus, Portland Community College, 241 SW Edgeway Drive, Hillsboro (Hosted by Aloha Unite! – a cooperative effort of non-profits and social service agencies serving Aloha, Reedville and Washington County)

The events are open-house style, with short presentation and question-answer sessions scheduled. Project staff and community advisory committee members will also be available to talk with residents.

If you're new to the project, there will be an opportunity to learn more about the Aloha-Reedville Study and what can be expected from this effort. Attendees can also review the community input provided to date and suggest additional ways to achieve the community's vision. If you cannot attend one of these community events there will be an opportunity to provide input through the project website: www.co.washington.or.us/alohareedville beginning October 15.

Background Information

The Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan is a three-year effort being jointly undertaken by Washington County's Department of Land Use & Transportation and Department of Housing Services. The study's primary objectives are to understand the existing conditions within this mostly unincorporated area of Washington County and to develop strategies to enhance the community's ability to attract investments and be better prepared to accommodate the jobs and housing that regional growth will bring. The study is in its final year.
