Presentation of Mayor’s Office Programs (Neighborhood Program and Municipal Code


Chief of Staff Linda Adlard introduced Neighborhood Program Manager Megan


Callahan explained the mission of the Neighborhood Program was to promote public

involvement in City government by working with the City’s Neighborhood Association

Committees (NACs), the Beaverton Committee for Citizen Involvement (BCCI) and the

City’s Boards and Commissions. She said the program provided and promoted public

involvement and educational opportunities on various issues.   She reviewed the special

events that the Neighborhood Program developed and sponsored, including the Biennial

Voters’ Forum, the Annual Neighborhood Cleanup each June, the Good Neighbor of the

Year Award, the Parade Theme Contest and the City Learning Series.  She noted the

Neighborhood Program also coordinated the public’s use of the Beaverton Community


Callahan reviewed future plans for the program, which included developing an electronic

notification system for the NACs and BCCI, training for staff liaisons and new members

to Boards and Commissions, rerunning the City Learning Series, developing a City role-

play exercise for the public and developing an on-line reservation system for the

Community Center.  

Coun. Brzezinski asked if the NAC’s had their own Web page. 

Callahan replied that half of the NACs had Web sites and the City’s Web Manager

Elzbieta Craig trained the members to setup and maintain the sites; some were linked to

the City’s Web site.  

Coun. Brzezinski asked about the attendance at the Learning Series.    

Callahan said that about ten to twenty-five attended each session.   

Coun. Soth stated that the City could be proud of how it has involved the citizens in

many ways, especially with the limited resources available.  He thanked staff for doing a

great job.  

Callahan noted the Voter’s Forum would be held on October 8 in the City Council

Chambers and broadcast live over TVTV.  

In response to Coun. Stanton’s question on the number of people who served on the

City’s Boards and Commission, Callahan estimated between 100 and 200 people.

Coun. Ruby noted the Community Center was a success and asked if the Library rooms

were available for citizens to reserve.   

Callahan explained that the Library Rooms were booked through the Mayor’s Office and

staff worked together to ensure meeting rooms were available when needed. 

Adlard reminded the Council that this program was funded at $260,000 this year and

staff worked hard to provide extensive resources with this funding.  

Adlard introduced the Municipal Code Services Program Manager George Fetzer.   She

briefly reviewed this program noting it was funded at $275,000 this year and it had been

a very busy program.  

Fetzer gave a slide presentation on the Code Services Program.  He noted the main

purpose of the program was to promote awareness and compliance with the Municipal

Code, which was done through various community education and awareness methods. 

He reviewed the presentations he made this year, in person and on Cable TVTV, and

the articles in the City newsletter and local papers.  He showed slides of the nuisances,

which included trash, abandoned vehicles, animal control and noxious vegetation.  He

explained the process the staff followed with Code cases.   He noted that plans for this

next year included a streamlined Abandoned Vehicles Program, a shopping cart

campaign to get store owners involved in the roundup of their stray shopping carts,

vacant lot cleanups, illegal signs cleanup, and public education campaigns.

Coun. Soth asked how far citizens could go in pulling up illegally placed signs. 

Adlard advised that citizens should call the Code Enforcement Office; this was to ensure

that the enforcement was correct and consistent and staff could inform  violators of the

sign regulations.  She noted that people may become upset when signs were removed,

which could cause an altercation; the best procedure was to contact Code Enforcement. 

She noted that signs were stored at City Hall for a short time and owners contacted; if

they were not picked up, they were discarded.  She also noted that staff conducted sign

sweeps on weekends.
