Wal-Mart in Cedar MIll?

Wal-Mart opponents demonstrate at the proposed site

In February 2005, Wal-Mart and the Peterkort Corporation announced a proposal to build a 145,000 square foot store on the empty patch of land at the SW corner of Cedar Hills Blvd and Barnes Road (across the street from Hollywood Video). The proposal was announced one day after the City of Beaverton formally annexed the land, so the approval process will occur within Beaverton’s planning department.

Many Cedar Mill residents are dismayed at the prospect of traffic that the store will create. It will be the only Wal-Mart on the west side of Portland, and is expected to draw shoppers from a wide area.

“Save Cedar Mill” formed in response to this proposal in March 2005. The group’s website (savecedarmill.com) includes a complete timeline of the expected development process. So far, the applicant has posted notices, held a neighborhood meeting, and completed the pre-application conference with Beaverton. Once Wal-Mart turns in their application, the city has 30 days to determine whether the application is complete. At that point Beaverton will publish a “Notice of Pending Development Application” which will set a public hearing date and a written comment period and announce criteria.

Save Cedar Mill's next event is called “Raise Your Voice!” This forum will teach Save Cedar Mill members the steps they can take to halt the Wal-Mart development. The event will be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2005 at 7:00 PM at Cedar Park Middle School Main Gym, 11100 SW Parkway, Portland.
