About the Beaverton Civic Plan
Moving Community Vision Forward
Between 2008 and 2010, more than 5,000 residents crafted the Beaverton Community Vision which emphasizes greater connectivity, economic opportunity, and environmental sustainability. The Beaverton Community Vision reflects goals and ideas shaped by the people of Beaverton, and without testing and prioritizing these ideas and developing a coordinated plan, the vision’s boldest ideas will remain concepts and “might-have-beens.”
The Civic Plan is the City’s commitment to making many of the aspirations of the Community Vision a reality and will unite the City behind an effort to achieve vision goals and priorities. As part of this process, the City will assemble the resources, tools, and partnerships to bring that vision into action. This work will require many hands and won’t be done overnight. While the Community Vision set the roots, the Civic Plan will provide a framework to bear the fruits of your community vision.
The Civic Plan kicked off in September 2010 with a series of public engagement events. Based on this input and technical analysis, three draft strategies were developed and were released on January 31, 2011. Revised drafts were released on March 21, 2011. City council unanimously adopted the Civic Plan Strategies on April 12, 2011.
