Starting in 2018, Clatsop County began a multi-year process to update the County’s Comprehensive Plan. County staff, citizen advisory committees and the Clatsop County Planning Commission have been working for more than two years on updating the policies for each of the 18 goals in the County’s Comprehensive Plan. These policies are a roadmap showing how the County can meet those goals over the next couple of decades. As the process to update the plan reached the final stages, the Clatsop County Board of Commissioners wanted to make sure that members of the public-- particularly those living in rural areas of the county, Spanish speaking community members, and people living with low-incomes--had sufficient opportunity to share what they think. The Board of Commissioners especially wanted to hear people’s thoughts on housing, county services, community involvement, and the economy. Oregon’s Kitchen Table, a program at Portland State University, worked with the County to conduct a community engagement process to hear from people who live in, work in, or own property in Clatsop County about what was most important to them when considering updates to the County’s Comprehensive Plan.
