Tigard Walks: A Plan for Walkable Neighborhoods in Tigard
We had a blast working with the people of Tigard during the Tigard Walks project, and we hope that you are as pleased with the results as we are.
After months of research, analysis, community feedback, and good old fashioned walking, we’re finally ready to present a set of strategies that will help Tigard reach its walkability goals. Join us this Tuesday, May 13th, between 6:30-8:30pm at Fowler Middle School to learn about the five – count ‘em, five! – strategies, and let us know where in the city they would be most successful.
Here’s a preview of the 5 walkability strategies.
Join StepUP Studio on May 13th from 6:30-8:30pm at Fowler Middle School as we show off our draft walkability strategies for Tigard.
And be sure to come by the first Tigard Area Farmer’s Market on Sunday, May 11th. We’ll be there looking for feedback from residents about walkability strategies.
