Welcome Friends of Rock Creek!
Friends of Rock Creek, Inc. is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization that was established in 2008 to protect the open space in the Rock Creek neighborhoods. The Rock Creek Country Club ownership group had petitioned Washington County commissioners to remove the Open Space designation from the golf course thus opening the land to zoning changes and development.
Development would lead to:
- Construction of high density housing
- Loss of open space, i.e. the golf course
- Overcrowding of schools
- Increased traffic through the neighborhoods
- Overburdening of Rock Creek infrastructure
Rock Creek residents came together in support of the Friends of Rock Creek in 2008 and we successfully stopped the the removal of the “Open Space” designation from the golf course property that is contained in the Washington County Charter.
Please support the ongoing efforts by the Friends of Rock Creek as we continue to monitor Washington County land use ordinance activity, potential annexation of portions of Rock Creek into the cities of Beaverton or Hillsboro, and any other activity or event that could affect the livability of our Rock Creek neighborhoods.
