Did you have a good weekend? Great! Now let’s get back to it, finding ways to contribute right here in our community. First, drop off your ballots at the library before tomorrow: it’s too late to mail them. After that, here are a bunch of things you can do this week, right here in Hillsboro.
There’s a Body Worn Camera Community Forum tonight at the Shute Park Library, between 6:30 and 8pm. The city has a $217,500 Federal grant to purchase cameras, and is looking for feedback from residents about what the program should look like. If you can’t make it to Shute Park tonight, there’s another open house a week later at Brookwood Library.
Hillsboro’s City Council meets Tuesday at 7PM—the agenda includes issues related to upcoming Cornelius Pass construction and a $125,000 contribution to the Portland Community College Future Connect program. There’s a work session before, starting at 6pm, about the Land Use Decision Making Process, which is probably good to know about about as the city keeps developing. I will be there, live tweeting via @HillsboroSignal, so follow along if you can’t make it to the meeting.
If you’re more interested in schools, head to the Superintendent Coffee Chat on Thursday, between 6 and 7:30pm at Bienestar’s Sierra West Community Room. Superintendent Mike Scott will be there to talk in Spanish with students from the district.
Finally there’s Food Truck Friday, between 11:30am and 1:30pm on the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza Friday.
Popular Latino singer-songwriter Edna Vasquez plays The Walters on Friday, May 19, and there’s also Public Works Day to look forward to. But I’m getting ahead of myself: we’ll outline talk more about this weekend later. For now get out there and get engaged!
