About Council Meetings
The Beaverton City Council meetings are conducted in the Forrest C. Soth Council Chamber:
City Hall, First Floor
4755 SW Griffith Dr.
Beaverton, OR 97076.
City Council meetings are generally held the first three Tuesdays of each month. All City Council meetings are open to the public except portions of the meeting that meet legal requirements to be discussed in executive sessions.
All meetings follow the same agenda format and follow Robert’s Rules of Order for public meetings. Public hearings are conducted according to the procedures outlined in the Beaverton City Code
Citizens desiring to address the City Council on an issue not on the agenda must fill out a speaker’s card at the table in the entry to the Council Chamber and submit it to the City Recorder immediately prior to the meeting. Such speakers are allotted five minutes each at the beginning of the meeting during the citizen's communications point on the agenda.
During this time, the Mayor will call up the members of the public by the name given on the card that was filled out. The individual must come to the front of the Council Chamber to the microphone set up for this purpose and will typically have the floor for five minutes.
Items on the agenda may not be addressed by the public unless the item is a public hearing. If there is an item on the agenda that is not a public hearing, and someone from the public wishes to address this item, they must contact the City Recorder ahead of time with the information. Often a Councilor or staff member can talk to them individually to address their concerns. If you wish, you may also fill out our online feedback form
and send your message to a Councilor.
