A New Tigard Triangle

The Tigard Triangle

The City is working to transform the Tigard Triangle into a vibrant area where people of all ages, abilities and incomes can live and work within walking distance to shops, restaurants and parks.

Located in the northeast corner of the city, just east of Downtown Tigard, the area's name comes from the triangle that is formed by the roadways that surround it: Highway 99W (Pacific Highway), Highway 217, and Interstate 5.

At about 550 acres, roughly the size of Downtown Portland, the Tigard Triangle is full of potential but parts of it lack basic infrastructure like sewers, sidewalks roads, parks, and access to the roadways that surround it. The Triangle has the ability to support Tigard’s future growth but needs help overcoming the existing development barriers.

In May 2017, residents approved the creation of an urban renewal area that would help turn the community's vision into a reality by funding projects through tax increment financing (TIF).

Engagement

We are seeking feedback from the community to help develop a strategy for growth and investments that will support future uses . The outcome will be a strategy that guides how the area develops and grows for the next 35 years.

Community input for this project will be gathered online and in person. Topics include:

  • Community Conversation- Project Prioritization (May 9 2019)
  • Community Conversation- Implementation Strategy (August 2019)
