Your Beaverton Update for February 10, 2022 (Happy Birthday Beaverton!)

Here is what happened with the city this week, and what to look for in the week to come. 

City Council 

Notice: Starting in March, the City Council meeting schedule will change. Regular council meetings will be scheduled only on the first and third Tuesday of each month, with the fourth Tuesday of each month held for Beaverton Urban Redevelopment Agency (BURA) meetings. 

Mayor Beaty proclaimed February 2022 as Black History Month in Beaverton. City Council also adopted a resolution denouncing antisemitism, affirming the city’s commitment to the safety and well-being of the Jewish community.

The presentation “School Resource Officer Program Comprehensive Review” was shared in collaboration with the Beaverton School District. It covered the process for how school safety and the roles of SROs will be assessed, with recommendations shared by July.

See the presentation on the proposed SW Millikan Way Extension Project, which aims to redesign Millikan Way between Watson and Lombard.
