'Talk Tigard' meetings set for March, April

Tigard City Councilors are looking to hear from you.

Councilors are planning a series of get-togethers with residents to discuss several topics, covering everything from marijuana dispensaries to the possibility of adding MAX light rail to town.

The events, known as “Talk Tigard,” are a new approach to gauging public feedback, city officials said. Councilors sit down with groups who don’t normally interact with the city to hear feedback on several topics.
