Tigard Seeks Exemplary Citizens

The Tigard City Council is putting out a call for nominations for the annual Exemplary Citizenship Award. “The award recognizes the efforts of Tigard’s hard working volunteers, whether they’re individuals, organizations, neighborhoods or businesses, who help make our city ‘a place to call home,’” according to Tigard Mayor Craig Dirksen. “We’re looking for those who have dedicated their time and energy to help make Tigard such a wonderful place to live, work and play.”

Award recipients are chosen for their service in implementing or helping with an outstanding project, program or service; enriching and revitalizing our community or neighborhoods; demonstrating responsiveness, creativity and civic values or promoting cross-cultural awareness.

The winner will be honored at the Tigard Chamber of Commerce annual Shining Star Community Awards Banquet on April 16. Nominations are due at the Tigard City Hall, 13125 SW Hall Boulevard, Tigard, Oregon 97223, by 5 pm, March 15.
