Park Master Planning
A community-based site master planning process was initiated during the Spring and Summer of 2009 to solicit
resident input and guidance toward alternative park design concepts. Two public meetings were held, and the
resulting conceptual development plan illustrated the community's interests in the design of East Butte Heritage
With the passage of the Parks Bond in 2010, the park master planning process re-started with new public meetings
to solicit additional feedback on the design and permitting for the construction of the park. The City of
Tigard's Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB) reviewed and recommended the adoption of the conceptual
master plan at a regularly scheduled PRAB meeting on July 11, 2011.
Design and construction of East Butte Heritage Park was funded through the recent Parks Bond supported by
voters in 2010. After the park is constructed, the city's general fund resources will finance ongoing park
maintenance and management.
