$670,000 has been authorized to buy the Clute property on Bull Mountain from the water capital improvement project. The Water Board was using it to provide access to the reservoir but found themselves with a 1.36 acre excess.
Preparing the site will cost about $30,000 which will leave the land to be appraised at $700,000. The proceeds from the sale are to be put in the water capital improvement project fund.
Also, two lots in the Ash Creek Estates subdivision will be purchased for $345,000, which will be used for a pocket or neighborhood park. There was concern about the steepness of the lots but it has been determined that it is still doable.
Oregonians love any project that will help keep Oregon green so setting aside these local parks now will benefit Tigard in the future as the population grows and infill ensues.
