Clackamas County Commissioners will continue with their digital listening session series this coming Wednesday, Sept. 23, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., to hear community concerns.
Parts of Clackamas County have been decimated by wildfire. Clackamas County Commissioners continually seek to ensure resident safety and position the county to recover, from both this natural disaster and the ongoing pandemic.
Commissioners want to hear directly from residents, customers and stakeholders – what must be done in order to recover? What does the county need to do to ensure our community perseveres and thrives? How can we help our local economy thrive?
This event is a Listening Session. County commissioners want to hear resident and stakeholder ideas and needs, so that they can best take action and plan for the future. This is not a question-and-answer session, as the time is devoted to commissioners hearing from residents and stakeholders.
Commissioners would like to hear about the following:
- What areas of investment would be most helpful? This can include sectors like housing, forest management, job training, etc.
- What do businesses throughout Clackamas County need to endure?
All five commissioners plan to be in attendance.
Since the onset of the pandemic, commissioners have held several listening sessions and Town Halls in order to hear directly from the public. The board’s weekly Business Meetings are also being held digitally.
For those who cannot join the event at all, but would still like to relay a comment, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Wildfire Recovery Listening Session” in the subject line, and be sure to provide your name and city/area of residence. One question/comment per resident, please.
Due to time constraints, comments will be limited. Please be advised that the Board or the Chair reserves the right to stop comments that are out-of-order or off-topic.
