Welcome to Byrom CIO
The Byrom Community Involvement Organization (CIO) is one of six residential CIOs located in separate geographical areas of Tualatin. The map shows the outline of our neighborhood – Byrom. Byrom CIO includes established neighborhoods and the newly annexed portion of Basalt Creek. Our membership is open to all who reside or own property in this area. The Byrom CIO Board and its volunteers supports members by working with the City of Tualatin and other government agencies when questions, ideas and/or complaints are brought to our attention. Our focus is on community safety, livability, equity and a sense of community.
For the first 10 years of the CIO program, Byrom CIO had very few changes. Today, significant projects may impact livability. Please contact us to see how you can get involved. To learn more email Tim Neary at email@example.com.
Residents have been so concerned about recent projects, they have formed a grassroots group. To read more go to their website

Lack of Mass Transit Service on SW Boones Ferry
The affordable housing project requires mass transit connections in order to justify the density and lack of parking. Byrom CIO is asking for feedback from our neighbors to see if this concern is widely held.

Traffic on SW Boones Ferry
Volume of current traffic on SW Boones Ferry far exceeds the capacity. Byrom neighbors are extremely concerned that livability will be destroyed by additional projects feeding traffic on SW Boones Ferry and the potential bridge crossing Tapman Creek/Basalt Creek from SW 124th to SW Greenhill Lane.

Byrom CIO Accomplishments
Crosswalk with Flashing Lights at Tualatin H.S.
Residents from Byrom, Midwest, and Martinazzi Woods CIOs worked together for many years with the City of Tualatin to move this project forward. This recently completed crosswalk at Tualatin H.S. has improved pedestrian safety on a very busy road. Tualatin 2018 transportation safety bond funded the crosswalk. Byrom residents strongly supported the bond measure.
Pedestrian Safety Top Priority
Byrom residents have for many years expressed concerns about pedestrian traffic on SW Boones Ferry, especially children walking to school. Boones Ferry Corridor Sidewalk & Bike Lane project will complete missing segments of bike lanes and sidewalks, & repair sidewalks, pathways, and bike lanes that do not meet current standards along Boones Ferry Road from Warm Springs Street to Norwood Road. The photograph show the newly completed sidewalk on S It is funded by the 2018 Tualatin bond transportation safety measure endorsed by Midwest CIO volunteers.
National Night Out
The Byrom CIO residents have held multiple National Night Out events. It is celebrated on the first Tuesday in August and promotes first responder-community partnerships. Tualatin Police Officers and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue crews make rounds to greet folks at each of the events.
Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Byrom CIO supports the Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT). These volunteers have the training and focus to help neighbors in emergencies, such as power outage, floods and earthquake. Each volunteer can set up a command center, offer search and rescue, provide basic first aid and communicate with City and County emergency response centers through HAM radios. Out of 108 active CERTs, Midwest has 11 members, 7 of which have their HAM radio license.
