At this hearing, the Commission will consider a request for preliminary plat approval for a proposed Infrastructure Planned Unit Development (PUD) and large-lot land division on three properties totaling approximately 463 acres in size. The purpose of the PUD is to allow construction of a primary road network and utilities known as the “Gateway Improvements” to serve the first phase of development of Reed’s Crossing and provide needed road capacity to serve the 1,400-acre South Hillsboro plan area.

The property owners are GLC South Hillsboro, LLC, and Hillsboro School District. The applicant’s representative is Bill Horning, Western Planning Associates, Inc.

The subject property can be specifically identified as Tax Lot 100 on Washington County Assessor’s Tax Map 1S2-10DD, Tax Lot 1600 on Tax Map 1S2-11 and Tax Lot 2600 on Tax Map 1S2-14 and is generally located north of SW McInnis Lane, south of SE Tualatin Valley Highway, east of SE 67th Ave/SW 229th Avenue and west of SW 209th Avenue.
