South Hillsboro, Where Community Comes to Life Logo

Keeping the community informed about activity in the South Hillsboro area was the focus of an open house meeting on Thursday, May 25, at Rosedale Elementary School.

About 80 attendees heard updates on four current or upcoming projects near the intersection of Cornelius Pass Road and TV Highway, and spoke one-on-one with knowledgeable staff from:

  • The City of Hillsboro
    • Planning Department
    • Parks & Recreation Department
    • Public Works Department
    • Water Department
  • Washington County
  • Willamette Water Supply Program
  • Hillsboro School District
  • Other partners involved in ongoing construction activity in South Hillsboro

Attendees also saw expected timelines, maps and other visuals. These materials will be posted here on the South Hillsboro webpage.

A recently adopted 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, 2016, 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 is expected to begin in late 2017 or early 2018.

Envisioning a Great Place, Where Community Comes to Life

Graphic of the South Hillsboro Composite Area MapOnce 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:

  • Approximately 8,000 residences of diverse types, architectural styles, and price ranges, designed to help meet the needs of the City's growth workforce, ultimately providing housing for nearly 20,000 residents.
  • Mixed-Use Town and Village Centers providing a range of shopping, services, and gathering venues serving local neighborhoods, the City, and the broader region.
  • 286 acres of new parks and open space with 15 miles of new multi-use trails, co-located with planned school facilities and placed such that all residents live within one quarter-mile of a park facility.
  • A fully multi-modal transportation network including world-class bicycle infrastructure and expanded transit service.
