Urban Renewal—Keeping Clackamas Working


Clackamas County urban renewal has fostered 30,000 jobs inside the Development Agency’s four urban renewal areas.

"The Government Camp Urban Renewal District was instrumental in the evolution of our small town. It was the catalyst to not only enhance our streetscape and revitalize our economy; it brought our community together with a common purpose."

- Jeff Kohnstamm,
President/Area Operator,
Timberline Lodge

"The urban renewal’s been good; the area’s cleaner looking and there’s more foot traffic, a lot more joggers, walkers, and bikes going past our store. People see us and there’s just more action."

- Kevin Wright,
Metro Tractor,

"Our family has lived two blocks off Sunnyside Road since 1991. I can now walk the two miles to work or to the store. I would have never considered it before the improvement. Thank you Clackamas County for making this major connector safer to both walk and commute."

- Fred Bahofner,

Sewer installation in the NCRA

"Many homeowners in our neighborhood really needed sewers and urban renewal has finally helped to make that a reality."

- Glenda Kennedy,
NCRA Homeowner

These are just a few of the successes that have been made possible by urban renewal funds. It all comes from the Development Agency’s commitment to work with local communities in an open and thoughtful manner.
