Here is a summary of the work happening in Public Works. Please feel free to contact Marissa Grass, community engagement coordinator, with any questions.
Completed Project on Commercial Street
The Public Works Water Division partnered with Streets to complete work on Commercial Street this week. Beginning the week of January 21, the water division started working on SW Commercial Street between Lincoln Avenue and Main Street. Taking advantage of the break in weather, paving was completed on Wednesday. Originally this project was expected to be complete on February 28, 2019. Thanks to all for getting it completed so quickly.
The City of Tigard maintains approximately 250 miles of pipelines that deliver safe, clean drinking water to homes and business. Every year we invest in replacing aging pipelines to keep our water system operating smoothly. When we can, we “piggyback” our replacements on roadway improvement projects, reducing the cost and providing new pipelines that work better with the improved roadways. Our cost saving approach to replacing pipelines in coordination with other public works construction projects is part of our commitment to maintaining affordability for customers.
Summerlake Park Tree Planting on Saturday
Join Friends of Trees in partnership with the City of Tigard and Clean Water Services as we continue our planting efforts at Summerlake Park. Help is needed to plant hundreds of native trees and shrubs to green this popular park. Volunteers are asked to arrive by 8:45 a.m. to sign in and enjoy some breakfast treats and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. Friends of Trees will provide gloves, tools, and guidance, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes or boots – and be ready to have fun!
All individuals and groups are kindly asked to RSVP to save your spot(s) by filling out a quick Registration Form. Registration is highly recommended but not required. This planting is part of Tree For All, a partnership which has planted more than eight million native plants in the Tualatin River Watershed since 2005! Clean Water Services, Friends of Trees, thousands of volunteers, other non-profits, city partners, and private landowners will be working together this season to continue the success of this program. Please contact Jenny, Pablo and Carey at (503) 595-0213 or email email@example.com if you have questions or need any further information. We look forward to seeing you out there!
