A recent Tigard Times article focuses on development in River Terrace. The city’s newest neighborhood is expected to break ground later this summer.

“There are pending applications for 215 new homes to the west of Roy Rogers, and 350 to the east,” said Susan Shanks, a senior planner working on the River Terrace area.
