Envision Tigard as a vibrant and healthy community where people of all ages and abilities can travel safely, efficiently and comfortably on a well-connected and optimized multi-modal network of roads, trails, and paths.


What are “Complete Streets?”
A street is considered complete if it provides the design and infrastructure elements required to serve each mode of travel whether on foot, by bicycle, on transit, or in an automobile. This does not necessarily mean a sidewalk and bike lane on every street though – individual street context is important and the policy will allow for a range of designs that provide safe streets for all users.


Tigard’s Complete Streets Policy will:

  • Formalize Tigard’s commitment to designing, building, and maintaining a transportation network and facilities functional for all road users of all ages and abilities regardless of method of travel,
  • Provide needed transportation policy guidance to bridge the gap between Tigard’s current auto-oriented urban form and the vision laid out in Tigard’s Strategic Plan, and
  • Identify goals and priority actions as part of the Tigard Complete Streets Implementation Plan.


Why is a Complete Streets Policy important for Tigard?
Complete Streets policies help to ensure equitable outcomes for all road users, including our most vulnerable. Regardless of age or ability, people are provided with the facilities and tools they need to safely navigate city streets, sidewalks, and off-street paths and trails.
