Mayor Cook produced a video to highlight city accomplishments from 2013 and aspirations for 2014. Highlights from 2013 included the city’s advances in economic development, our work on the water partnership with Lake Oswego, our involvement with the Southwest Corridor Plan, and the progress of the River Terrace Community Plan.

The video includes an interview with Stakeholder Working Group Member John Weathers, who discusses what River Terrace could mean for Tigard. Weathers’ envisions the new neighborhood as one of the “most forward thinking and looking communities in Tigard.” The public involvement process and new online communication and input tools were also highlighted.

Planning for River Terrace has made great progress in 2013, and planning efforts are expected to come to fruition in 2014.
