Utility Rate Increase effective July 1
Tigard utility rates will increase on July 1, 2021 to protect public health and maintain city infrastructure. For a typical household, bills will increase $9 per month. We understand this is a difficult time to raise rates. We continue to pursue actions to keep rates as low as possible and to ensure help is available to those who need it.

Money Saving Measures---
Water Reuse at Cook Park -
The use of reclaimed water for landscape irrigation will be expanded in Cook Park. Not only does reusing water save money, it saves fresh drinking water too!

Improved Efficiency and Accountability
Increased staffing this year means utility workers can focus on maintenance tasks like:

  • Troubleshooting and testing irrigation systems earlier in the spring to fix leaks and improve water efficiency.
  • Increased field maintenance, which means less herbicide is purchased and applied to formal sports fields. Healthy fields benefit from the labor and expertise it takes to adhere to a strong turfgrass maintenance schedule (regular soil testing, fertilization, over-seeding, aerification, mowing, irrigation, top dressing, etc.).
  • Expanding maintenance for open spaces, natural areas, and trails.
  • Tree care, new expertise on staff means the city can reduce the amount of work hired out to contractors.

Future and Undeveloped Parks

UNDEVELOPED PARKS WITH A PLAN

Undeveloped parks currently serve as natural areas. These parks are earmarked for future development, and the park planning process is either underway or completed.

Bagan Park -
10910 SW Greenburg Road
About an acre of this 3-acre future neighborhood park could be developed. The rest of the site—comprised of a small creek and wetlands—will remain green space. Currently, parking is not available at this site. For more planning details, see the Bagan Park page.

Fields Natural Area -
Located just to the east of the Tigard Public Library
Located in the heart of Tigard, about 10 acres of the 26-acre site consists of open field areas; the remainder of the site is wooded. The Fanno Creek floodplain overlaps the western and southern boundaries of the property. The property is unique, not only for its size, but also because it will someday provide a link to other segments of the Fanno Creek Trail. For more information, see the Fields Natural Area page.


Steve Street Property -
SW 84th Avenue and SW Steve Street

This future neighborhood park includes a grassy field area and a small, wooded wetland. Conceptual planning is underway to determine future park improvements. For more planning details, see the Steve Street Property page.

Sunrise Park -
150th Avenue and Sunrise Lane
Comprised of open space and wooded slopes, this future community park is located in Tigard on the north side of Bull Mountain and will link Cach Nature Park and the Westside Powerline Trail corridor. Future park features could include sports fields, pathways, parking and a sports court, a play structure, restroom, shelter and overlook. For more planning details, see the Sunrise Park page.


UNDEVELOPED PARKS WITHOUT A PLAN
Undeveloped parks currently serve as natural areas. While earmarked for future development, there are no plans to develop these parks in the near future. No park planning has been done.

Cach Nature Park -
Baker Lane (north side of Bull Mountain)
Comprised of open space and wooded slopes, this 16-acre natural area park has limited access. Currently, parking is not available at this site.

Lasich Lane Property
The City of Tigard has purchased property for the first of two community parks planned in the River Terrace area, using funds from a voter-approved parks levy bond that residents approved in 2010 and dedicated revenue from development fees that support parks citywide. The 28.4-acre property is located on the west side of Roy Rogers Road, where it intersects with Beef Bend Road. It lies directly north of the Tualatin River Wildlife Refuge. The property lies outside the city limits and the urban growth boundary (UGB). City planners expect the property will be brought into that boundary in the future. Until then, the city cannot fully develop the park, but may be able to open it for some recreation activities in a few years. Currently, there is no public access.
