🌱Cedar Mill’s Wildwood Taphouse Opening Soon + Beaverton Police Log
Hey, everybody! It’s me, Ash DeMello, your host of the Daily. Here are all the most important things to know about what’s happening in town.
First, today’s weather:
Partly sunny with a shower. High: 75 Low: 59.
Here are the top stories today in Beaverton:
- Mayor Beaty joined a Reno conference of mayors recently, where she co-sponsored a resolution for healthy school infrastructure. The resolution recommended a commitment from the participating mayors to urge local governments to help bridge the budget gap for school maintenance, using funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and ARPA. One attendee estimated that the federal government was “underinvesting in school buildings and grounds by $85 billion each year.” (CSRwire.com)
- The Beaverton Police Log: It always makes for interesting reading. Head over to the Beaverton Valley Times (subscription required) to learn more about a houseguest who made off with their host’s vehicle and wound up with a DUII, a man who used a fake ID to test drive a car and then failed to return it, a man whose payment for marijuana was declined (he took it anyway) and much, much more. This article contains the log for June 15-19.
- Wildwood Taphouse is soon to open a second location in Cedar Mill. The business, which opened its first taphouse in Tanasbourne, plans on welcoming customers to its second iteration at the new Milltowner Center on Cornell and Saltzman by mid-July. Look forward to 24 taps on rotation, beautiful reclaimed glue-lams on the interior and closeby eateries (Abuela Chona, Mio Sushi and a pizza place) to complement your beverage experience. (Cedar Mill News)
- Washington County Commissioners unanimously approved an ordinance supporting “middle housing” options at their June 28 meeting. Middle housing refers to duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhouses and cottage clusters, all of which will now be allowed in single-family residential districts. The change is intended to increase housing opportunities for “people at different life stages, and with diverse wants, needs and incomes.” (Washington County)
- And here’s your latest real estate roundup for the Beaverton area, available from the Beaverton Patch. This week’s list includes a cute townhome in swanky Forest Heights, a four-bedroom in need of updates in the Greenway neighborhood and a 1940s farmhouse on nearly half an acre in Elmonica.
