Cooper Mountain Community Plan

Cooper Mountain Urban Reserve map

Project Description

The city is starting a multi-year process to develop the Cooper Mountain Community Plan. The plan will establish local goals and policies for the area, and fine-tune the city’s approach to housing variety, transportation, natural resource protection, commercial opportunities and other issues. 

Process

The city will work with a broad range of community members, property owners, developers and other stakeholders in creating the plan. This project will involve technical analyses, community engagement, and other work to develop a community-supported plan. 

The Beaverton City Council must approve all Comprehensive Plan and zone changes.

Project Timeline

Phase 1:
Pre-Planning
  • Study existing conditions
  • Develop preliminary street and utility plans
  • Research development best practices
  • Conduct market analysis
  • Identify suitable funding tools
Phase 2:
Community Planning
  • Refine vision
  • Consider alternative solutions to address key issues
  • Select preferred alternative(s)
  • Develop infrastructure funding plan
Phase 3: 
Adoption
  • Develop community plan
  • Draft code and map changes
  • Develop implementation plan
  • Adopt changes

The project is expected to take approximately two to three years. The city is still working on the project scope and will release more detailed timelines in the future. 

The city will likely not act on annexation requests and allow development until after the planning process is complete.
