Clackamas County to host discussion with regional leaders on future of Damascus area land

From: Tim Heider, Clackamas County Public Information Officer, 503-742-5911

 Media and Interested Parties

With the disincorporation of the city of Damascus in July, Clackamas County has assumed jurisdiction of approximately 10,000 acres of unincorporated land inside the Metropolitan Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). Because of the many jurisdictions involved, the county has scheduled a preliminary meeting with other agencies to begin a discussion on how to work together, involve area residents and ensure a bright future for the area.

Elected officials and staff have been invited from the following agencies:

  • Clackamas County
  • City of Happy Valley
  • City of Gresham
  • City of Sandy
  • Oregon Department of Land Conservation & Development
  • Metro

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at Happy Valley City Hall, 16000 SE Misty Drive in Happy Valley. 

The public is welcome to attend and listen to the roundtable discussion among representatives from the invited jurisdictions. 

There will be many future discussions and conversations that will include opportunities for public participation.
