Reimagining the City of Tigard
As we navigate these challenging times, we have options before us. We can reminisce about how things were and focus on going back to what we did. Or we can view this as an opportunity, a moment in time when we can look forward. We are opting for the latter. Learn more about Moving Forward Together[MG1]

 COVID-19 Response

City’s Role

  • As a City it is our responsibility to maintain essential services and support our public health partners.
  • During a public health emergency, Washington County Public Health in conjunction with the Oregon Health Authority are the lead agencies.
  • The City is taking action to slow the spread of COVID-19 and amplify the messages, recommendations and preventative measures of the lead agencies.

What We Are Doing

Supporting the Tigard community during Phase I of Reopening Oregon

The City has established a team to help support local businesses and community members as Washington County moves into Phase I of the Governor’s Reopening plan. This team is looking at several ways the city can support local businesses, like trainings on new guidelines. Learn more about community support.

Reimagining Tigard’s City Services

Status quo is not an option. This pandemic has impacted our lives, personally and professionally. It is an opportunity to do things differently. It is a chance to think about how we want to operate and how we can provide services. Learn more about city service impacts.
