Your Beaverton Update for November 18, 2021

Here is your update on what has happened with the City of Beaverton this week, and a preview of what to look for in the next week to come.

City Council

City Council proclaimed Nov. 17-23, 2021, as City of Beaverton Staff Appreciation Week in recognition of the dedicated service and commitment to the community by city employees. Mayor Beaty proclaimed Nov. 27, 2021, as Small Business Saturday in Beaverton.

Washington County Supportive Housing Services shared a quarterly report on implementation of a voter-approved measure estimated to generate more than $200 million for regional homelessness and permanent housing solutions. The goal is to achieve zero chronic homelessness through programs and strategies, such as bridge shelters, case management, rental assistance, culturally specific resources, training and more. The Beaverton Winter Shelter, which opened for its sixth season on Nov. 15, is contributing to year-one goals for 500 housing placements, 500 households stabilized, and 100 new year-round shelter beds.
