Mayor's Corner

Message from the Mayor
April, 2014
Spring is here at last! And it’s brought some good news. I recently attended the State of the County address and it appears that our county’s economic outlook is rebounding. Population and employment growth is increasing thanks to new investments in nearly every sector of the local economy.

Tigard has certainly contributed to the health of our county’s economic climate, as witnessed by the number of new businesses moving into our city and infrastructure investments like the Main Street/Green Street project. This project makes long-term improvements to the heart of Tigard that will attract visitors, new businesses and services. Why wait to visit downtown? Throughout construction, merchants are open for business and eager to see you!

Speaking of “open,” it’s budget season for the city and I encourage residents to attend one (or all) of our Budget Committee meetings. They’re open to the public and take place on consecutive Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m., starting April 21 in the Public Works Auditorium (8777 SW Burnham St.).

My April quote of the month is by Robert Byrne, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”

Mayor's Signature
John L. Cook, Mayor



Mayor Cook Issues Statement on Election Results
The narrow passage of ballot measure 34-210 tells us voters want to have more control over how and where high capacity transit might be built in our city, and that they want to cast another ballot someday on the construction of a future light rail or bus rapid transit project. We now have an opportunity to have more dialogue about how high capacity transit might fit into our city's future. Read entire statement...


2014 “If I Were Mayor, I Would…” Contest Opens
Mayor Cook and the Oregon Mayors Association (OMA) invite Tigard students grades 4–12 (including homeschooled students) to participate in the annual “If I Were Mayor, I Would...” contest!

Oregon mayors are elected by the voters in their city and they each have unique interests and backgrounds. Get creative! How would you serve the city if you were the mayor of Tigard? All entries must be received by 5 p.m., Monday, May 12, 2014.

Mayor Cook will select one winner in each contest category:

  • Essay (Middle School grades 6-8)
  • Video/PowerPoint (High School grades 9-12)


  • Prizes!
    1. The local winner in each category will be awarded a $50 VISA gift card and recognition at the May 27, 2014 televised City Council meeting.
    2. Each Tigard winner will be entered into the OMA statewide contest for a chance to win one of three iPad Air tablets! Statewide winners and their mayor will be notified in mid-June.
