Tigard Streets for People COVID-19 Pandemic Response

Since March, we’ve seen a lot less auto traffic and a lot more residents walking and bicycling on city streets to stay active and healthy. The Streets for People program helps make sure people have the space to comply with state and federal distancing guidelines.


What We're Doing

Streets for People

To support safe and healthy neighborhood access to the Fanno Creek trail system, we’re kicking off the Fanno Creek / Pathfinder Pilot Project. The pilot project will include temporary traffic calming measures to encourage people to drive with extra caution on streets that function as neighborhood greenways — where people travel on foot or by bike, to and from the trail.

Tigard Outside is Business as Usual

If you see more cafe tables on the sidewalk, parking lot or street corner, it's because the City of Tigard has temporarily relaxed permit requirements for restaurants and businesses interested in expanding into public space in order to serve customers while reopening and follow social distancing requirements. City council waived the fee for this temporary permit through December 2020.



Fanno Creek / Pathfinder Pilot Project

Beginning June 26, we’ll install a pilot project with temporary "pop-up" traffic calming measures on the following streets to connect the Fanno Creek Trail and the Pathfinder Trail:

  • SW Grant Ave
  • SW Johnson St
  • SW Brookside Ave
  • SW 106th Dr

Streets and street segments were selected based on their ability to provide neighborhood access to Fanno Creek Trail in the center of the city. Our goal is to make it easier for community members to get to and from the Fanno Creek Trail while maintaining safe physical distancing recommendations.

The pilot project is expected to last through the summer into September. Early in the pilot, we will be asking for public feedback to help us assess how successful it is and to help inform decisions on whether to expand the program to more streets.


Supporting the Tigard Strategic Vision

Our main goal is to make it easier for people to get to and from the Fanno Creek Trail while maintaining safe physical distancing. But the Streets for People program also supports the city’s strategic vision: to become “the most walkable community in the Pacific Northwest where people of all ages and abilities enjoy healthy and interconnected lives.”


We Want Your Feedback

Since this is a new program, we want your feedback. Share your experience and ideas using the brief survey below. We will be collecting responses until October 2.
