Message from the Mayor
There’s a new member in Oregon’s 50,000 population club—Tigard just
became the fifth city in the Portland metropolitan area to have a population of
50,000 residents. With 50,444 residents, Tigard is the third city in Washington
County to reach this milestone.
By now, most of you are aware of
the major construction project on Main
Street. Crews are working hard to replace
water and sewer lines, widen the sidewalks
and add new street trees, LED streetlights,
benches and public art. The result will be a
safe, efficient and pedestrian-friendly street
that includes the latest in “green street”
Downtown Tigard is “Open for
Business” and I urge you to join me to shop
local and support our Main Street shops
during this tough time for them.
My July quote of the month is by Jules
Renard, “Liberty is the right to choose. Freedom is
the result of the right choice.”
John L. Cook, Mayor
August "Fireside Chat with the Mayor" Cancelled
The Mayor will be attending the Oregon Mayors conference during the first week in August, so there won’t be a
“Fireside Chat” this month.
