Starting next week, Clackamas County Commissioners will host digital listening sessions with the public.
Any resident or interested party is invited to join these digital sessions, which will be held via Zoom. Earlier this week, Clackamas County utilized the Zoom platform to hold its Policy Sessions and Business Meeting, which are being archived to YouTube.
The point of these listening sessions is for commissioners to hear directly from residents and stakeholders about community concerns involving the ongoing pandemic’s effect on a given topic.
Commissioners will primarily listen to the public give opinions, relay personal experiences, and state their hopes/worries about the pandemic’s short-term and long-term effects.
Tuesday, March 31, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
