Cedar Mill Community Library

The community of Cedar Mill was growing in the early 1970s. New subdivisions were bringing more families into the area. The closest libraries to serve this growing population were downtown Portland or the library in Beaverton. A group of young parents began to discuss the problem, and in the Cedar Mill spirit of community action, they decided to do something.

History in the News
William Cornell, pioneer preacher

Cornell Road is named after William Cornell, early contributor to the taming of the Cedar Mill area. His story is impossible to untangle from the story of the religious needs of the early community.

Beaverton in Cedar Mill

Some residents were puzzled last month when signs went up on Cornell Road that said “Welcome to Beaverton.” Was there a stealth annexation that nobody heard about? Well, no, that section of Cornell was annexed into Beaverton in 1999 along with portions of Science Park Drive, Murray Boulevard, Highway 26 and the land under Sunset High School and Sunset Park.

Cedar Mill News prints on

We’re back in business, thanks to one of our readers! Mike Noonan, a Sales Representative for Copytronix/CTX Business Solutions, grew up in Cedar Mill. He read the article in the last issue about us losing our printing partner, and told his bosses. They discussed it and came back with an offer. They are letting us print the paper on one of their machines! See their ad on the back page for information about the services they offer, and give them a call if you can throw some business their way. Thanks, Copytronix!

CPO 1 To Study Transportation

Getting from ‘here to there’ in our area has always been a challenge, originally because of an absence of any road, then because of an impassable road and, nowadays, because of extremely congested roads.  As society has evolved, our demands on our transportation system have exceeded our means to pay for them.
