How Should Beaverton Add More Housing? 

Many of you shared your ideas, concerns and priorities for housing through the Housing Options Project and Cooper Mountain Community Plan efforts. It’s going to be an exciting year for both projects, and it’s not too late to get involved! Here is a look at what’s next: 

Cooper Mountain Community Plan 

Based on what we’ve learned through research and community input, we developed three alternatives for Cooper Mountain. The alternatives show different ways the city could plan for new housing, commercial areas, parks, trails, natural areas, and roads.   

Visit for the latest information on project events, including a survey launching in March! We’d like to hear your thoughts on the three alternatives for Cooper Mountain.    

Housing Options Project  

The draft rules for adding housing variety — duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhouses and cottage clusters — to existing neighborhoods are available for review! You can visit to take a look and comment on the Development Code updates. 

Community members’ comments were important in creating new ways to allow a mix of housing. We look forward to your comments about the specific rules and guidelines so we have a chance to make them better before an expected May public hearing at the Planning Commission. A City Council vote on the rules is expected in July.
