View the CCDA Budget
The City Center Development Agency (CCDA) is charged with the revitalization of Downtown and
implementation of the Urban Renewal Plan, which was approved by voters in May of 2006. The source of funding comes
from tax increment financing. When the CCDA was established, the assessed value of the district was frozen.
Property taxes collected on any growth in assessed value over and above the frozen base (the increment)
can be invested by the CCDA on urban renewal projects to foster economic development in the Downtown.
City Council Adopts 2014-2015 Budget
The city's budget allows the city to direct its resources to the priorities of the community and city leaders.
Below are some of the highlights of the fiscal year 2015 budget:
We are moving our first strategic plan forward. This is done by making investments in:
Focusing our existing core services on the plan goals.
Supporting public communications and engagement.
Performing a parks maintenance study to determine service levels, costs, and proposed funding of current and future parks and trails.
Additional partial position support for geographic information services (GIS) to help with mapping connections and other communications.
Tigard is making some key one-time investments to improve efficiency and the way we provide service to our customers,
the public. These include:
Automated Materials Handling equipment in the Library which will sort materials and allow more people to perform re-shelving duties, meaning our library patrons will get their library materials faster.
Mobile computing equipment for Police which will allow for less time in the office and more time in the field.
A new phone system for the city - modernizing our phone system and increase reliability.
Fixes for the exterior of the Permit Center with Police and City Hall.
There are five new positions and all are paid for using the current resources the city already has.
Three are in Public Works, where we are converting dollars we spend for temporary and seasonal staff to create positions to help out in Fleet, Facilities, and Parks.
A new Communications Strategist position in City Management will help with a long standing city and Council goal to improve public involvement and communications with our community. This is paid for by converting dollars we now spend for printing, postage and other savings and transition the Cityscape newsletter to (mostly) an electronic format.
The fifth position formalizes the LO/Tigard Water Partnership Project Director which will represent Tigard's interests, paid for with Tigard's water fund resources for the project.
The City of Tigard has been recognized by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United
States and Canada (GFOA) as a recipient of the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.
