In 2012, the City of Tigard began a journey to define its sense of place and the strategic direction it wanted to take over the next 20 years. Our ideas came together around a strong vision to become the most walkable community in the Pacific Northwest where people of all ages and abilities enjoy healthy and interconnected lives.
