City of Beaverton Public Involvement Opportunities
Get Involved – Serve on an Advisory Group for City Projects & Initiatives
In addition to the city's formal Boards and Commissions, opportunities arise throughout the year for positions on various task forces, Community Advisory Committees (CACs), and Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to provide feedback on city projects and initiatives.
Downtown Loop Project
The Beaverton Downtown Loop is a key initiative to enhance walking, biking and transit on SW Hall Boulevard and SW Watson Avenue. It seeks to establish a strong connection between Old Town and Beaverton Central by reimagining how the streets and sidewalks are used and how they look. A Community Advisory Committee (CAC) will provide local knowledge and community expertise evaluating urban design and transportation improvement alternatives. The group will meet five times between Feb. - Sept. 2021. Learn more about the Downtown Loop Project and apply to be part of the Community Advisory Committee. Applications are due by January 22.
Cooper Mountain Community Plan
The committee will help the city determine how to provide new homes, roads, parks and neighborhoods to Cooper Mountain. Members will share ideas and provide advice on important issues such as housing affordability, racial equity, natural resource protection and transportation. The group will meet roughly 10 times over the next 18 months, beginning in spring of 2021. Learn more about the Cooper Mountain Community Plan and apply to be part of the Community Advisory Committee. Applications are due by January 31.
A Thank You Message From Our Elected Officials to Those That Served in 2020
We're Better With Your Voice – Beaverton’s Boards & Commissions
Applications for 2020 are now closed. However, opportunities arise throughout the year for midterm appointments. If you would like to be considered for a midterm appointment, submit an online application below. Otherwise, your application will be held over for the 2021 formal recruitment period.
We know how important it is to have a seat at the table to share your voice in the matters that matter to you. Getting involved in local government is one way to do that. The City of Beaverton recruits annually for openings on its boards and commissions. With a variety of boards and commissions catering to a wide range of interests including human rights, the arts, social services, diversity, urban renewal, libraries, city budgeting, community involvement, traffic, land use, bicycles and more, there are many opportunities available.
Beaverton’s boards and commissions play a critical role in supporting city functions and advising the Council and Mayor on a variety of issues and topics. All are essential to incorporating the community’s voice in city decision-making. It’s not all feedback-focused though; their creativity has also produced beloved Beaverton programs and events such as the “Library of Things,” the annual Bike Beaverton event, and the annual Beaverton Night Markets.
You make the difference. We invite you to join us. Bring your perspective, ideas, and passion and apply today.
