The Beaverton City Council approved a major update to the Beaverton Community Vision action plan at the February 16, 2016 meeting. The plan identifies community-inspired actions that the city and a wide range of community partners will work on over the next decade.
The 104 actions in the updated plan are based on outreach by the volunteers of the Visioning Advisory Committee (VAC). VAC volunteers gathered public input at events and presentations throughout the community. In all, 5,751 people shared 7,722 ideas for Beaverton’s future, which became the actions in the new plan.
Updates to the action plan include topics like affordable housing and homelessness, food carts, street maintenance, small business support, schools, arts, and more.
Beaverton Community Vision was honored with the 2011 Award of Excellence - Community Visioning by 3CMA (City County Communications and Marketing Association). Read the news release.
The project was also named 2011 Public Involvement Project of the Year - Best Planning Project by the Cascade Chapter of the International Association for Public Participation. Read the news release.
