Citizen Involvement

Advisory Boards and Commissions
The ABC's of County Government, offering citizens the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and goals of their County. Hundreds of citizens serve, through County Commission appointment, on various committees. What is your interest? From arts to budget to children -- the County wants your input on policy development. 

Committee for Citizen Involvement
The CCI is responsible for assisting the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners and other appropriate governing bodies with the development of a program that promotes and enhances citizen involvement in land use planning.

Community Planning Organizations
Community Planning Organizations (CPOs) are part of the citizen involvement program for Clackamas County. They are advisory to the Board of County Commissioners on land use matters affecting their communities. CPOs are notified of proposed land use actions and legislative changes within their boundaries. They may review these applications and provide recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.

Hamlets and Villages
Clackamas County initiated the Hamlet and Village Program as an offshoot of Complete Communities Program in 2006.  It was in response to grassroots efforts by citizens to become more involved with county government and to help support their community.

There are four established hamlets, Hamlet of Beavercreek, Hamlet of Molalla Prairie, Mulino Hamlet and Stafford Hamlet. There is one village, Villages at Mt Hood.  All hamlets and villages hold regular monthly meetings. Information about meetings, times and locations are on the Hamlet and Village pages.

We publish meeting materials on behalf of Citizen Involvement organizations. Citizen Involvement materials and statements do not necessarily represent the views of county elected officials or staff.
We cannot publish materials, statements, and other content that fail to meet accessibility standards or that advocate for a political candidate, campaign or issue.
