Marlene Village is an unincorporated community in Washington County, Oregon, United States.[1] It is located immediately northwest of Cedar Hills and south of the Sunset Highway (U.S. 26), lying east and west of Murray Blvd. Marlene Village began as a 400-home "low-cost residential development" on which construction started in early 1949.[2] It was named for Marlene Schnitzer, the then-infant granddaughter of the project's Portland-based developer, Harry Mittleman.[2] The first block of 50 homes went on sale in August 1949.[3] Fire protection and EMS services are provided through Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue.
