This solicitation will accept bids through February 28, 2020 at 3 p.m. This is the first bid project in Beaverton to go through a competitive bidding process. Proposals will be reviewed by a variety of stakeholders after the deadline.
Project Specific Community Engagement
Project specific outreach and community engagement will be completed for each of the four anticipated affordable housing development. Community engagement will include input from an ad hoc review committee for each project, the newly formed Housing Technical Advisory Group, and culturally specific community engagement and outreach with a variety of other groups.
In November 2018, Metro voters approved a $652.8 million bond—$31 million of which will be allocated for City of Beaverton projects. In accordance with the bond conditions, the city is developing a plan to outline how these funds will be used to create safe, affordable housing options in our community.
