Gladstone/Oak Lodge Library Settlement

Two buildings, one library.

Clackamas County and the city of Gladstone resolved a legal dispute over library operations. The settlement creates a path forward toward a comprehensive library solution for the city and the Oak Grove/Jennings Lodge area using current library reserves.

The settlement requires a robust public outreach process to determine the size, scope and location of the libraries.

On Oct. 12, 2017, Clackamas County Commissioners unanimously agreed to the proposed settlement. This action followed the Gladstone City Council’s unanimous approval of the settlement earlier two days earlier.

Here are answers to some commonly asked questions about the settlement and the promised public outreach.
