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.
Implementing the Plan
Here are the steps that we are taking to implement the plan.
|GOAL 1: Walking and Connecting:
Facilitate walking connections to develop an identity

Construction & Road Closures. Walnut Street is adding sidewalks, bike lanes, center turn lane, new sewer line, replacement water line, and underground utilities.
