City Facilities Consolidation

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Tigard is growing and facilities are aging, undersized and need very expensive repairs and system replacements. To meet the needs of our community now and into the future, we’re considering consolidating city services in two new buildings that will save Tigard residents money over time, improve the safety of our facilities, add affordable housing, and support a vibrant downtown core.

Key Project Features

  • Construct a new city hall/police station and a shared use parking garage on existing Public Works site.
  • Relocate the public works services, facility and yard.
  • Redevelop the current city hall site for market rate and affordable housing.
  • Bring more housing and parking to the downtown.
  • Potentially relocate and enhance Jim Griffiths Memorial Skate Park across Burnham St.

Why is the project necessary?

City buildings need expensive, extensive repairs. Maintenance backlog: $14 million by 2026. Another $19 million is required to bring the city’s four buildings up to current seismic standards.

Existing city buildings do not serve Tigard’s current and future needs. Since city hall was constructed in mid-1980s, Tigard’s population has more than doubled. The police building was designed in the mid-1980s for 31 staff.

Building two new facilities is more cost effective than repairing and upgrading our current buildings. It is estimated the savings to Tigard over 20 years is about $33 million.

How will we design the potential new city hall and community campus?

The city has hired an architecture firm to begin the visioning and conceptual development for a potential new city hall and community campus in spring 2021. If the project is approved to move forward in November 2021, we’ll continue to seek community feedback to develop and refine the design.

Visioning and conceptual design (April 2021): Gather community input on values and priorities to inform community campus scope, design, and character.

Report back on concept development (May-June 2021): Provide concept to illustrate community campus design and material, surrounding landscape, and inform cost estimates. Share how design reflects community values.
