Clackamas County Development Agency

In 1977 the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners created the Clackamas County Development Agency (CCDA) as the urban renewal authority for Clackamas County. The Development Agency is:

  • Committed to carrying out plans developed specifically for each urban renewal area to:
    • Increase jobs
    • Improve economic vitality
    • Improve opportunities and capabilities by removing influences that inhibit development or redevelopment
  • Dedicated to fulfilling commitments to the community:
    • Develop plans that best meet the needs of each area's residents, businesses and agencies.
    • Ensure funds are spent efficiently and effectively for the benefit of each urban renewal area.
    • Work closely with and considers the ideas, needs and wants of residents, businesses, workers and other agencies in and near each urban renewal area.
    • Consistently working with citizens, businesses and agencies to support the growth of livable, sustainable, economically viable communities.

The Development Agency administers three urban renewal areas. A fourth urban renewal area, Government Camp, was retired in 2015 after all projects were completed and funds were expended.
