“The best pizza joint in Beaverton is Society Pie on Nimbus Avenue. When you walk in, you can sense the pride this friendly family place has in its business and what they do. Plus, you can have fun with your pizza because you’re given an entire board of options. How’s their pizza? Um, need you even ask? It’s delicious! Yeah!”

Hello Beaverton! Welcome to another issue of The Beaverton Resource Guide. As a full-color, monthly newspaper that’s dedicated to the positive aspects of our community, you can be sure to find interesting and uplifting stories about what makes our city one of the best in the country (ranked #3 nationally for “Best Places to Raise a Family” by, 2018).

The goal of The BRG is simple and can be easily read at the top of each month’s cover: “Connecting Community”. To me, this means connecting people who live, work or shop in and around Beaverton with the abundant local resources available here. So, whether you’re a shop or a shopper, we’ll do our best to introduce you to each other. Are you looking for something to do out of the house? We’ve got you covered there too with a variety of options in our Out & About section. Find the county’s event calendar, the Beaverton Farmers Market Vendor Guide, regional theatre line ups, a full list of library programs and more.

The BRG is available for pickup at over 170 locations from large grocery stores to small dentist offices. For information about placing an ad, stories, distribution or anything else, email Sincerely, Michael Wong (Managing Editor) PS. Don’t forget to visit our website

Synopsis : ISing, under the direction of Stephen Galván, will be joined by members of the Big Horn Brass Ensemble, organist Dan Miller, and pianist Yvonne Yang in a celebration of the season which includes familiar tunes like “Joy to the world,” “Angels we have heard on high,” and “The snow lay on the ground” in new arrangements. Honoring the people of Ukraine, the choir will perform two Ukrainian pieces, one of which is familiar to many as “Carol of the Bells.” The concert will conclude with the electrifying “Gloria” by John Rutter.

Traffic Q&A:


the Beaverton Police Department

Except for disabled vehicles, is there a minimum speed limit on highways or main thoroughfares to prevent people from driving too slow and possibly causing a traffic hazard?

Much love, Kevin

Oregon does not have a “minimum speed” requirement for highway travel. Instead, Oregon law requires a driver to drive in a manner so as not to impede traffic. Impeding traffic in Oregon is defined, per ORS 813.130, as “driving a motor vehicle or a combination of motor vehicles in a manner that impedes or blocks the normal and reasonable movement of traffic.” There are some specific exceptions, including if a slower speed is “needed for safe operation” , “momentarily stopping to allow oncoming traffic to pass before making a right-hand or left-hand turn” , “momentarily stopping in preparation of, or moving at an extremely slow pace while, negotiating an exit from the road” , and “if the person is proceeding as part of a funeral procession under the direction of a funeral escort vehicle or a funeral lead vehicle.” The offense is a Class D Traffic Violation with a presumptive fine of $115 and maximum fine of $250. Because the definition is vague, it allows for a subjective interpretation of what constitutes a violation. Best-practices guidance for drivers wishing to travel below the speed of traffic is to drive in the right-most lane of travel.
