If you missed seeing the city of Beaverton’s plans for the redesign of SW Broadway you have another chance to talk about the project with a powerful city official.
Beaverton’s Mayor Denny Doyle is coming to Neighborhood Association Committee (NAC) meetings in February and March to give an update on the city and answer questions from citizens.
It will be interesting to see what questions are asked of Doyle now that Beaverton is closer to solidifying a plan to revitalize it’s downtown.
Beaverton also recently received the dubious honor of being named the “Least Romantic City” in the United States. The title comes from location-based service Foursquare analyzing how many people checked in at “romantic” destinations, like wine bars or French restaurants, around the city.
Many people who live in and around Beaverton know how difficult it can be to travel in the city on foot or by bike. Could it be that a lack of safe and convenient (and perhaps romantic) travel options is pushing lovebirds to businesses outside Beaverton’s city limits?
Doyle will be attending the next NAC meetings scheduled for this Wednesday (February 15) at 7pm at Nancy Ryles Elementary School and March 22nd at 7pm at the Edgewood Downs Retirement Center.
More information about the NAC meetings can be found on Beaverton’s Neighborhoods website.
