Welcome to the Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan!
The Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan is our shared vision for Hillsboro’s future and a detailed action plan for working toward that collective vision. The ideas in the plan are based on input from thousands of community members in cooperation with local organizations who have agreed to share implementation responsibilities. The plan was developed by a volunteer, community-led task force representing a wide variety of interests to ensure the Vision retained a broad community focus.
The Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan is modeled after Hillsboro’s original award-winning visioning effort, the Hillsboro 2020 Vision and Action Plan. For the past fifteen years, Hillsboro 2020 has served as a catalyst for a wide range of community enhancements, partnerships and investments. The overarching goal of the Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan is to extend that success into the future, and guide Hillsboro’s future growth and evolution through coordinated, collaborative community engagement.
Community Plan Process
The Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan was developed over a three-stage process as depicted in the graphic below. Early demographic and trend research in 2013 helped frame extensive public outreach, community conversations and input on Hillsboro’s future by over 5,000 community members. The resulting feedback was then sorted into idea themes and referenced by teams of over 60 community volunteers and topic-area experts to create specific action proposals. Those proposals were prioritized through a community review survey, and the highly supported actions were adopted by community partners for implementation. The Hillsboro City Council adopted the Plan in July 2015.
