    Downtown Tigard: Open for Business
    It's easy to shop downtown and support local businesses. While construction is underway:
  • Downtown streets are open and drivable.
  • Sidewalks are open and walkable.
  • There is plenty of convenient parking along Main Street and at several public parking lots.



  • Frequently Asked Questions
    Q.What is a green street?
    A. A green street can be defined as a street designed to:
    • integrate a system of stormwater management within its right of way
    • reduce the amount of water that is piped directly to streams and rivers
    • be a visible component of a system of "green infrastructure" that is incorporated into the aesthetics of the community
    • make the best use of the street tree canopy for stormwater interception as well as temperature mitigation and air quality improvement
    • ensure the street has the least impact on its surroundings, particularly at locations where it crosses a stream or other sensitive area
    • the design and construction of green streets is one component of a larger watershed approach to improving the region's water quality, and requires a more broad-based alliance for its planning, funding, maintenance, and monitoring

    Who's Who on Main Street?
    Jeffrey Allen Home Gallery
    Walk into Jeffrey Allen Home Gallery (12460 SW Main Street), and you will be walking amid eighteenth century cabinets and statues from the Ming Dynasty as well as modern Asian art. Owners and brothers Allen and Peter Luong select classic, one of a kind Asian pieces for their gallery based on the philosophy that "authenticity is a part of life we strive for - it is what makes a home real."

    Open a little over a month on Main Street, the Luongs are excited to be a part of Tigard's Main Street. The construction on Main Street wasn't a deterrent for them to relocate. Rather, it was an attractant: construction means change, and they embrace the opportunity to be part of the exciting changes coming with downtown construction.
