One of the primary goals of the TV Highway Project Steering Committee is to create a project that is supported by the community, in particular transit riders and communities of color. To ensure this goal is met, there will be substantial community engagement throughout the project.
The project team conducted phase one of community outreach during summer and fall 2022, equitable development strategy outreach in fall 2022 and winter/spring 2023 and will continue phase two of outreach in early 2024.
During phase one, over 160 community members were introduced to the project through presentations at the following meetings:
- TV Highway Equity Coalition
- TV Highway Leadership Cohort (leadership development program with Unite Oregon)
- WashCo Bikes
- Beaverton Bicycle Advisory Committee
- Beaverton Neighborhood Association Committees (NAC): Central Beaverton, Five Oaks/Triple Creek, West Beaverton
- Washington County Community Participation Organization 6
- Hillsboro and Beaverton Youth Advisory Councils
- Aloha Business Association
- Washington County Chamber of Commerce Transportation Task Force, which included a representative from Westside Transportation Alliance
- Beaverton Chamber of Commerce
- Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation Board
- Ride Connection/GroveLink
- Hillsboro Transportation Committee (a subset of Hillsboro City Council)
- Members of Oregon’s Mobility Advisory Committee (representing freight interests)
In phase two outreach, Metro will share information on the project goals, outreach to date and current work on the transit study. Community members will also have an opportunity to weigh in on key project decisions, including station locations in early 2024.
