Ensure a vibrant, livable and walk-able Sunset Station Community with a mix of residential and neighborhood retail
Save Cedar Mill was born out of a community’s urgent need to join together with one strong, organized voice to stop the development of a Wal-Mart on the corner of Barnes Rd and Cedar Hills Blvd. – a development that would have crippled the traffic flow through our community and diminished our way of life. Save Cedar Mill was successful in that effort thanks to a massive outcry and generous support from neighbors across the region. Today, we’re asking you to raise your voice again.
The City of Beaverton is in the process of rezoning the Peterkort property surrounding the Sunset MAX Station. If this proposal goes through, we could find ourselves fighting multiple Wal-Mart-sized fights in the near future.
We cannot afford to continue to stay on the sidelines for these battles large and small. We also cannot take an organization that is no longer in existence, and associated with a Wal-Mart traffic fight, and evolve that into a neighborhood advocacy group without a new name to reflect a new mission. With that realization, we are pleased to announce the formation of Neighbors for Smart Growth. Our efforts will be led by a committee that includes several veterans of the Save Cedar Mill organization.
Join us, Neighbors for Smart Growth, as we build on the foundation laid by Save Cedar Mill to give a voice to the tens of thousands of citizens who live in our community, some who are not part of any city, but all who are affected by the manner in which our region develops. Together we will work to ensure that our past investments in our neighborhoods will not be stifled by a lack of vision or a lack of community involvement as we grow and develop.
