I probably can be misleading, as I feel like the whole area is Milwaukie ... I probably should be more specific.

It depends on what kind of a house you're looking for. If you do want newer construction, you pretty much have to be east of 205. West of 205, the houses are older, though you do find some infill, newer houses. The only areas I would necessarily avoid would be along 82nd, or right along Hwy 99, around Clackamas Town Center, or right around Johnson City (an incorporated trailer park with some really old, rundown trailers). Otherwise, I'd say anywhere south of 224, down to Oregon City is fine.

Using 99E, the commute time from Canby is about 30-35 minutes, which is tolerable.

Any further ideas on Canby?

I think Canby is regarded as a nice community, though a little too conservative and narrow-minded for me. I've had a loathing of it ever since they passed Ballot Measure 9 -- way back in 1993. Lots of communities did, eventually. But I guess I've held the grudge because they were among the first. I still won't spend any money in Canby, should I be passing through.

Yeah, it was a pretty ugly time. Such hateful attitudes. There was a very good documentary made about it, called "Ballot Measure 9."

Most communities that passed it were more rural - I think Canby & Springfield were the ones that irked me the most.
