Tigard City Council approves final land-use plans for high capacity transit
TIGARD -- At tonight's meeting, Tigard City Council unanimously approved a final report for land-use plans tied to bringing light rail, commuter rail or bus transit options to the city.
The approval, the latest step in a multi-tiered effort, accepts the blueprints for creating station communities around Metro's Southwest Corridor Plan for high capacity transit.
It is a green light for the city to start looking at implementation strategies for the community concepts in the plan.
More to come.
