Community Involvement

Advisory Boards and Commissions
The ABC's of County Government, offering community members the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and goals of their County. Hundreds of community members 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 Community 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 community involvement in land use planning.

Community Planning Organizations
Community Planning Organizations (CPOs) are part of the community 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 community members to become more involved with county government and to help support their community.

There are four established hamlets: Hamlet of Beavercreek, Mulino Hamlet and Stafford Hamlet. There are currently no villages.
