It’s not too late to have your voice heard!
Be a part of the Community Vision
The city’s Community Visioning process is ongoing. The city has already heard from over a thousand residents around the city in focus groups, surveys, interviews, and public outreach sessions. Now that the city has collected resident opinions on housing, public safety, transportation, economic development, and so much more, the outreach process is moving to identify specific items for action for the final visioning plan.
While initial focus groups, interviews, and the first community survey have concluded, it is not too late to have your voice heard! The city is requesting additional input from community members to determine what goes into the final Community Visioning plan.

Beaverton Night Market Comes Home to The Round
Mark your calendar for this year’s Beaverton Night Market, set to take place Saturdays, Jul. 23 and Aug. 13 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Now that construction has finished in the area, this year’s market is set to return home to its original location at The Round, located at 12600 SW Crescent St., just off the Beaverton Central MAX stop. The market will occupy the south side of the plaza and stretch around and up Southwest Crescent Street in front of the new arts center all the way to The Reser plaza. There is no cost to attend the event and vendors are encouraged to keep prices low to make the event accessible for families to enjoy.
Over 60 booths, ranging from more established businesses to those who are vending for the very first time, will share their cultural wares and foods along with performances highlighting cultures across the globe. In addition, attendees can anticipate family-friendly cultural games and activities, as well as a special breakdancing competition in collaboration with USA Breakin’ and Portland Hip Hop Week at the July market. We can’t wait to see you at Beaverton’s biggest and best summer event!
The Beaverton Night Market is hosted by the city’s Diversity Advisory Board, which has a primary role in planning and hosting the market each year. The Market exists to create a vibrant, intercultural, family-friendly space that is reminiscent of night markets internationally. The Market offers a culturally relevant evening activity and gathering space with cultural foods and crafts for families of all backgrounds in Beaverton.
