PORTLAND, Ore. – The public is invited to give input on a proposal to expand Metro’s urban growth boundary Thursday. The expansion would impact four cities: Hillsboro, Wilsonville, King City and Beaverton.

Residents in the included suburbs have received notice of the potential development.

In Beaverton, residents were notified that the expansion could impact the Cooper Mountain Area Urban Reserve Area.

This map shows all four expansion proposals in green. The area within the yellow boarder is the current urban growth boundary.

Metro says the expansions would make room for roughly 9,200 homes, including multi-family units and single-family homes.

Anyone who’d like to share an opinion on the expansion should attend the public hearing on it Thursday at 2 p.m. during the Metro Council meeting.
