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 a TIF District that would help turn the community's vision into a reality by funding projects through tax increment financing (TIF).


Planning for Equitable Development
The goal of “A New Tigard Triangle: Planning for Equitable Development” is to provide direction for public investments that support equitable development in the Tigard Triangle TIF District. The implementation strategy will ensure that local residents and businesses have the opportunity to benefit from the area’s economic transformation.

In Phase 1, conducted from February- October 2019, equity criteria were developed with substantial community input. The criteria, along with a financial plan and a model that determined which projects had high development impact, resulted in prioritized list of projects from the Tigard Triangle TIF District Plan.

Phase 2 advanced preliminary designs and program development for several near-term, high-priority projects. These projects will form part of the Triangle’s infrastructure investment plan.

In February, 2021, the Board of the Town Center Development Agency adopted the plan as a guide for implementation of the Tigard Triangle TIF District.
