Tigard is part of a regional economy. More than 25,000 Tigard residents are the creative talent and highly skilled workforce that power businesses around the Portland Metro Region. More than 3,300 Tigard companies attract a workforce of 50,000 people from around the region to our city every day.
Locally, in 2014, the City of Tigard adopted a strategic vision with a 20-year timeframe to make this city the most walkable community in the Pacific Northwest where residents of all ages live healthy and interconnected lives.
