Powers & Duties

The Beaverton Committee on Aging, formerly known as the Senior Citizens Advisory Committee, was formed in 1995. The goal of the committee is to provide a forum within city government for seniors to communicate with the city's senior community and city officials. This has been accomplished through workshops and participating with city officials to address the concerns of seniors.
