Tigard Walks!

With the City Council’s recent adoption of a Strategic Plan to make Tigard the most walkable city in the Pacific NW where people of all ages and abilities enjoy healthy and interconnected lives, residents and staff are invited to join a new series of non-competitive walks designed to get out and tour our city! 

The first walk of the year (rain or shine!) will be on Thursday, January 1 - New Year’s Day at 11 a.m. in Cook Park. There are two different walks to choose from (short and medium-length, both are paved, easy to walk).  Pick up a route map at the shelter by the volleyball court at Cook Park (17005 SW 92nd Avenue) and join the walk!  There’s plenty of parking if you’re driving in to join the walk.

Whether you’re a seasoned walker or new to this activity, everyone is welcome.  Meet new people and enjoy the camaraderie experienced in a walking group - build confidence, reduce stress/ improve sleep and see the city from a pedestrian’s point of view. Teams build community!

Participants walk at their own risk - if you have doubts about participating check with your doctor.

Bring your family, friends and neighbors! Get your walk in before the Rose Bowl kick-off at 2 p.m.!
If you have questions, please contact Joanne@tigard-or.gov or 503-718-2476.

Pavement Marking work begins

The city has contracted with Capitol Asset and Pavement Services, Inc. to do pavement ratings on about 48 miles of our streets – mostly local neighborhood streets. 
This involves driving the street a few times and then walking along the street to take measurements of cracks and other pavement distresses on the streets.

Joel Conder will be the primary person doing the work, which will take a few weeks.   He will not be driving a City-marked vehicle. When he is doing the work, he will be wearing a typical high-visibility shirt, and the vehicle will have signs on its sides saying ‘Pavement ratings’ and back saying ‘frequent stops do not follow.’

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail our Traffic Engineer, Mike McCarthy at 503-718-2462 or  mikem@tigard-or.gov.

Extra patrol for DUII coming to holiday roads

This year  throughout the entire Thanksgiving holiday period beginning on November 21 and continuing until December 1, Tigard Police plan to continue high visibility enforcement (HVE) as part of a nationwide effort to reduce impaired drivers. Here in Tigard, grant funded overtime for officers will allow extra patrol to locate and focus efforts on drivers who are operating a vehicle under the influence. The program is in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and locally, Oregon Impact. This partnership is an important component in efforts to make our roadways safer.

Remember: drive sober or get pulled over.
