With a diverse economy, strong schools and outstanding parks, Tigard is one of the most livable cities in Oregon.

Open Door Policy

The City’s "open door" policy encourages members of the public to attend weekly city council meetings and observe the five member council, made up of a mayor and four councilors, make important decisions. Tigard is a community building for today and its future. Local government and school leaders, citizen groups, businesses and individuals work hard to build upon Tigard's significant community attributes. The City promotes citizen participation through the Committee for Community Engagement that represents the community's 14 geographic areas. This committee encourages citizens to become part of the decision-making process.

Statement of Unity

Statement of Unity

We have heard from members of our community who are fearful for the safety of family, friends and members of the community.

We want the Tigard community to know that the city council is committed to providing a safe, welcoming and respectful environment for all who reside in, visit and pass through our communities.

Our commitment to that environment is reflected in our vision of building, supporting, and maintaining a community where people of all ages and abilities can enjoy healthy and interconnected lives. Our community is welcoming to people of all backgrounds.

The city has consistently complied with and will continue to comply with Oregon State law which states that "No law enforcement agency of the State of Oregon or of any political subdivision of the state shall use agency moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws."

What that means is:

  • The city does not inquire about immigration status when working with community members.
  • Police officers are committed to the safety and protection of all residents, regardless of their legal status, and to create a safe space for those who do not have legal status to be able to report crimes without fear.
  • The city does not get involved with immigration and deportation issues of residents who are in the United States without authorization and who have committed a crime.

The city council is committed to supporting the public we serve, and providing excellent services for all people equally and fairly — regardless of race, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, age or ability. 

We stand against prejudice, fear, ignorance and hate and will work to bring our communities together and to maintain a welcoming environment where every person feels safe.

Declaración de Unidad de La Ciudad de Tigard
Hemos escuchado de miembros de nuestra comunidad que temen por la seguridad de la familia, amigos y miembros de la comunidad.

Queremos que la comunidad de Tigard sepa que el ayuntamiento está comprometido a proveer un ambiente seguro, acogedor y respetuoso para todos los que residen, visiten y pasen por nuestras comunidades.

Nuestro compromiso con ese ambiente se refleja en nuestra visión de construir, apoyar y mantener una comunidad donde personas de todas las edades y habilidades puedan disfrutar de vidas saludables e interconectadas. Nuestra comunidad es acogedora para personas de todos los orígenes.

La ciudad ha cumplido consistentemente y seguirá cumpliendo con la ley estatal de Oregón que establece que “Ninguna agencia de aplicación de la ley del estado de Oregon o de ninguna subdivisión política del estado puede usar dinero, equipo o personal con el propósito de detectar o Aprehender a personas cuya única violación de la ley es que son personas de ciudadanía extranjera presentes en la violación de los Estados Unidos de las leyes federales de inmigración.”

Lo que esto significa es:

  • La ciudad no pregunta acerca del estatus migratorio cuando trabaja con miembros de la comunidad.
  • Los agentes de policía están comprometidos con la seguridad y protección de todos los residentes, independientemente de su condición jurídica, y para crear un espacio seguro para aquellos que no tienen estatus legal para poder denunciar los crímenes sin temor.

El ayuntamiento se compromete a apoyar al público que servimos y proporcionar excelentes servicios para todas las personas de manera equitativa y equitativa, independientemente de raza, religión, estatus migratorio, orientación sexual, edad o habilidad.

Nos oponemos a los prejuicios, el temor, la ignorancia y el odio y trabajaremos para unir nuestras comunidades y mantener un ambiente acogedor donde cada persona se sienta egura.
