Tualatin Police will deliver prescriptions to Durham residents

The Tualatin Police Department wants our community members to know about prescription delivery services available to you.  During this time and importance of social distancing we understand many community members still have a need for critical medical prescriptions.  The pharmacies located in Tualatin all have their own delivery services whether it be Script Drop from Fred Meyer and Safeway, Walgreens Express Delivery at Walgreens or the independent courier service at Northwest Compounders Pharmacy.  Setting up delivery through your pharmacy will ensure you will still be able to obtain your needed medications.

We also want to let you know that Tualatin Police is ready to help if you are in need of a prescription and are not able to pick it up or have it delivered.   If you make payment arrangements with your pharmacy and they agree to release the medication to the police on your behalf they will go to your local pharmacy, pick up your prescription and deliver it to you.  You can contact The Tualatin Police Department at 503-691-4800 from 8:00AM-5:00PM Monday-Friday and a department member will facilitate the pickup and delivery of your prescription.

Opportunity to Vote on Route of Fanno Creek Trail

Tigard is doing a Fanno Creek Trail Alignment Study  to assess the best route from Bonita Road to the Tualatin River for what will be the last segment of the Fanno Creek Trail in Tigard.  The community is invited to learn more and participate in a survey at this web page.

Conditions made it infeasible to go through Durham with the trail, but Durham residents will still have access to this regional trail through our City Park.

Opportunity to review and discuss Police Department’s policies

Invitation from the Mayor of Tualatin below:

Join the conversation.

Earlier this summer, I signed the Obama Foundation’s “Mayor’s Pledge” to review and discuss police use of force policies in Tualatin. I did this with the support of the Tualatin City Council, the Tualatin Police Department, and the entire City organization. It was clear to me then, as it is now, that this is a community priority.

I am writing today to ask you, members of the diverse Tualatin Community, to join me as we collectively review and discuss our Police Department’s use of force policies. 

Over this fall and winter, we will convene groups of community members to gather for a three-part series of conversations about our Police Department’s use of force policies. Each session will have a different agenda and we ask that you make time to participate in all three. Following these conversations, we will present our findings back to the City Council and community.

  • Session One: October 14 from 6pm – 7:30 pm
  • Session Two: November 18 from 6pm – 7pm
  • Session Three: December 9 from 6pm – 7pm

For more information and to participate, visit our webpage using the link below.

Sincerely,

Mayor Frank Bubenik

Playground is open

On Friday, September 4, 2020, Governor Brown’s office updated the Statewide Reopening Guidance for Outdoor Recreation. Playgrounds are open, but equipment is not sanitized. Park users are being asked to ensure that physical distancing of at least six (6) feet between people of different parties is maintained at outdoor playgrounds.

Additional guidance from 11.18.20 follows:

  • Public is encouraged to visit parks and recreation areas close to home, avoid overnight trips, and minimize travel outside their immediate area for recreation.
  • Public is cautioned to not travel outside of their home area if they live in an area with a high number of reported COVID-19 cases.
  • Visitors are encouraged to bring their own food, water bottles and hygiene supplies (including hand sanitizer), as well as to take their trash with them when they leave.
  • The public is encouraged to recreate with their own household members rather than with those in their extended social circles.
