A recently adoped South Hillsboro Finance Plan calls for $450 million in infrastructure investment, including $300 million in new roads to increase options for drivers and improve existing intersections. The City of Hillsboro required developers to pay 100 percent of costs that are unique and exclusive to their projects, so that existing Hillsboro residents are not asked to pick up the tab to build infrastructure for new homes.
A South Hillsboro ground breaking took place on August 9, and the first task is the extension of Cornelius Pass Road south of TV Highway and the extension of Blanton Street west from 209th Avenue. Home construction will begin late 2017 or early 2018.
Envisioning a Great Place, Where Community Comes to Life
Once the historic Ladd-Reed farm, South Hillsboro is 1,400 acres of open space, farmland and developed property that is in the process of becoming an entirely new and exciting part of our community. Bordered on the south by Rosedale Road, on the north by Tualatin Valley Highway, and lying between SW 229th Avenue and the existing Urban Growth Boundary to the west and SW 209th Avenue on the east, this new, innovative place will help meet some of our current and future needs for housing while creating an amazing neighborhood. South Hillsboro will include three unique districts which together will provide diverse residential neighborhoods located near jobs, retail centers, schools, parks, trails and greenways — all situated in ways that make it easy to walk, bike and use public transit. Read a two-page overview of the Future South Hillsboro.
The 2014 South Hillsboro Community Plan envisions the area's long-term development over the next 20 years, building upon prior planning efforts in the area. At full build out, South Hillsboro is anticipated to include:
