Hillside Master Plan was approved by the Milwaukie City council on Tuesday night. The Milwaukie affordable housing project goals include up to 400 additional affordable housing unites, a community gathering space, enhanced outdoor recreation areas, other amenities that will serve both Hillside residents and neighbors, and a mixed-use community with potential new retail and office space. The project vision reads:
The Hillside Master Plan will set the vision for a vibrant mixed-use, mixed-income community that preserves and rebuilds existing affordable housing at the 16 acre site., while creating new opportunities for expanding housing options and types.
The meeting had a public hearing aspect, and after a thorough discussion, was approved unanimously by the Milwaukie City Council.
