History & Overview
Welcome to the Murrayhill Owners Association website. Murrayhill is a full-service residential and commercial community located in SW Beaverton, which was initially developed by Columbia Willamette Development Company between 1986 and 1992, and embraces 379 acres of prime land just NW of the intersection of Murray Boulevard and Scholls Ferry Road. The Community was planned to preserve the rich topography and natural resources of the area, while also creating a community of striking but complimentary architecture, unique open spaces, street views, and Town Center amenities. The 1,456 residences in our community are a combination of single family lots, town homes and multi-family complexes.
The Murrayhill community is located within the Beaverton School District and includes Nancy Ryles Elementary school, Highland Park and Conestoga Middle schools, and Southridge High School. There are also an excellent assortment of nearby private, charter and magnet schools.
There are two major commercial and professional sites within the community, the Murrayhill Marketplace and the Murray-Scholls Town Center, providing the community with easy access to a vast array of retail shops, banks, restaurants, child care, professional services and the Murrayhill branch of the Beaverton Public Library. The recreational spaces include the Murrayhill Home Town and Recreation Center with three swimming pools, a wading pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor tennis and basketball courts, athletic field, play structure and miles of walking and bicycling trails within the Murrayhill natural resource areas and the adjacent THPRD managed Power Line Park.
The Murrayhill planned community includes two primary associations that support and represent the neighborhood. These include the Murrayhill Owners Association (MOA) and the Murrayhill Recreation Association (MRA). The Owners Association is responsible for continuing the architectural review of building within the community, compliance with the community rules and regulations and the landscaping and maintenance of the common areas within the community. The Murrayhill Recreation Association is primarily responsible for programs and maintenance associated with the Home Town Center and recreation facilities.
This website is dedicated to the activities of the Murrayhill Owner Association. Since the Murrayhill community includes a mix of land use types including single family residential, multi-family, and commercial properties, it is called the Murrayhill Owners Association (MOA) instead of being called a “homeowners” association. The MOA is managed by a Board of Directors made up of four home owners elected by the residential owners, one representative from each of the two commercial properties and two representatives from the three multi-family complexes. The Board regularly meets the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 PM. The Board meetings are always open and we encourage you to attend. Please contact our office to confirm the scheduled meeting will take place.
The Board of Directors oversees the Architectural Review Committee, responsible for reviewing all changes proposed to the exterior of any Murrayhill property, The Compliance Committee who notifies owners who inadvertently violate the covenants, conditions, and restrictions or the Design Guidelines, and the Landscape Committee who oversees the annual planning and maintenance for our 16 acres of common property.
The MOA is supported by fees that are paid by all property owners of the Association. The fees are used to operate the ongoing activities, programs and maintenance items budgeted by the Association. In addition a portion of the fees supports the projected costs to repair or replacement of the community’s common improvements, including sidewalks, plantings and trees, irrigation and other common property improvements.
The positions on the Board and the Association’s committees are all made up from volunteers. The Association could not exist without the support from individuals willing to serve in these positions. We encourage you to explore our website and to get involved in your community.
