BEAVERTON, Ore. – Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle was recognized with a Bridge Builder Award during Bridge Meadow’s annual spring event held May 4 that honors a person doing extraordinary work in our local community.
“I am truly humbled,” said Mayor Denny Doyle. “Supporting affordable housing is something we are all rallying around right now and it was amazing to be a part of bringing Bridge Meadows to Beaverton to help foster families and seniors. I share this honor with many others who helped make this inspiring, life-changing project come together.”
Mayor Doyle was honored for his work building connections throughout the community and championing addressing affordable housing solutions for seniors and low-income residents.
“It means so much to us to honor Mayor Doyle who is such a champion for children, elders and the Beaverton community,” said Dr. Derenda Schubert, Executive Director of Bridge Meadows. “His dedication makes him a true advocate, and we are so fortunate to have him as a partner.”
Past award recipients include Rhoni Wiswall, Portland Commissioner Dan Saltzman, Bob Walsh of Walsh Construction, and most recently Mrs. Dorothy Lemelson.
Bridge Meadows is a unique, intergenerational housing community that provides homes for adoptive families of youth formerly in foster care and older adults who help the younger families. Located in the Central Beaverton neighborhood on the corner of SW Allen Blvd and SW Menlo Drive, the community opened in August 2017. It features 41 units, nine family townhomes and 32 apartments for elders. For more information, visit www.bridgemeadows.org.
