Beaverton Offers Free Workshop to Help Neighbors with Conflict Resolution and Communication Skills

BEAVERTON, Ore. – On Thursday, April 27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., the city of Beaverton will host “Neighbor to Neighbor: A Community Problem-Solving Workshop.” The free event will be held at the Beaverton Activities Center, 12500 SW Allen Blvd.


Residents often don’t know what to do when they experience conflict with a neighbor or issues within their living community. This workshop is an opportunity to learn communication skills to effectively resolve issues and build meaningful community between neighbors.


The workshop was created in response to feedback received last fall at the city’s housing forum and guidance from the city’s fair housing plan, adopted in 2012. This event is part of Beaverton’s celebration of Fair Housing Month, a national commemoration of the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act.


The workshop will be led by the city’s Dispute Resolution Center. Free refreshments and childcare will be provided onsite. Interpretation services are available by request. RSVPs are encouraged to edeppa@BeavertonOregon.gov.
