Address Changes Continue for Hillsboro Businesses
If your business uses a Washington County-based address, your address will be changing to a Hillsboro-based address. As part of the public input process for the Connecting Hillsboro project, the City of Hillsboro mailed notifications to all affected Hillsboro businesses and residents in 2016 informing them of the coming addressing changes. The addressing project continues to be implemented in phases, with additional notices mailed to affected property owners during each phase – a practice that will continue for the remaining phases.
The last area to see the phased addressing changes implemented will be the Tanasbourne/AmberGlen neighborhoods east of Cornelius Pass Road. Dual signing and addressing is slated to be in place by fall 2018, nearly two years after the City Council approved the changes.
Businesses on impacted streets in Tanasbourne and AmberGlen will have up to two years to transition to using the new address. Areas such as North Hillsboro, South Hillsboro, and Orenco Station have already seen address changes implemented.
The community’s goal of having consistent addressing within the City of Hillsboro was first identified nearly two decades ago as part of the Hillsboro 2020 Vision and Action Plan. Consistent addressing strengthens residents’ sense of community and common identity, and promotes efficiency in the delivery of emergency and other services.
