Welcome to Riverpark CIO
The Riverpark Community Involvement Organization (CIO) is one of six residential CIOs located in separate geographical areas of Tualatin. The map below shows the outline of our neighborhood - Riverpark. Our membership is open to all who reside or own property in this area. The Riverpark Board of 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.

Riverpark CIO Accomplishments
Tualatin Road Safety
Residents needed help following complaints of speeding, noise, and concerns for safety on Tualatin Road. Public Works has responded with building crosswalks, adding an electronic speed meter… and we now have an official Deer Crossing sign. Recently, the CIO has received a request to look into speed enforcement by our police.
Off-Leash Dog Park
Riverpark residents and their best dog friends meet mid-morning at Jurgens Park off-leash area. The residents lobbied for years for this wonderful area where dogs can roam, play, and just be dogs. Anecdotally, their human partners have formed lasting friendships throughout the neighborhood while keeping their eyes on their canine companions. This improvement has been a win-win for dog owners and nonowners since it provides an off-leash option.
“…a dog party
Big Dogs, Little Dogs,
Yellow Dogs, green dogs,
Black Dogs and white dogs.”

National Night Out
The Riverpark CIO has contributed funding to neighborhood gatherings to mark National Night Out. This event is celebrated on the first Tuesday in August and promotes police-community partnerships. Our Police Chief Steele and his officers make rounds to greet folks at each of the events.
In partnership with the Parks Department, the CIO contributed grant money for the project.
Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Riverpark 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, Riverpark has 32 members.
Emergency Supply Kits
Riverpark CIO has contributed grant funds to a community emergency supply kit. There are currently two supply hubs located in Riverpark. They are available to CERTs in the event of an emergency. In an emergency, Command Centers will be set up at Hazelbrook Middle School – if school is not in session. Alternative locations will be at the cemetery or business at 124th and Tualatin Road.
