Tigard Municipal Code

Pending Code Updates

Administrative Process and Procedures Phase I Code Updates
The City of Tigard has undergone a lengthy process to update and revise the current code. The proposed code changes are mostly administrative in nature. On Monday, October 2, 2017, the Tigard Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding the adoption of these code changes.

The changes focus on:

    • General code housekeeping to increase consistency and remove redundancies
      This includes removing references to sections that no longer exist, reformatting tables to a consistent style, providing consistent phrasing and terms throughout the code and codifying current practices. 
    • Reorganizing and consolidating the current code structure
      This includes several chapters being reorganized to provide a consistent format for each chapter. Reorganization will create better readability and easier use by the public. 
    • Replacing and removing outdated and ineffective regulations
      Ensures that the code is current and complies with state and federal regulations.
    • Streamlining existing processes and procedures
      The major changes include chapter organization, codifying the existing practice of neighborhood meetings and clarifying the current pre-application conference requirements and procedures. This will streamline the review process, address deficiencies and make each process as clear as possible.
    • Addressing minor deficiencies in the code
      Requires a policy change, although changes are considered minor in nature. Some of the key changes include measurement of lot width, calculation of density, procedures based on calendar days, and addition of the lot consolidation process.
