Your CPO needs you!

CPO 8 leadership is not currently formally elected, but interim volunteers are organizing the group. CPO 8 members need to take on official roles to run CPO 8 by July 2016 for the organization to remain active for the rest of the year. 

CPO leadership is a rewarding experience.

CPO leaders:

  • Organize and hold CPO meetings which give people the opportunity to exhange information and concerns, and in some cases develop strategies to address those concerns about their community.
  • Lead efforts to keep community members informed of upcoming land use, transportation, and environmental projects.
  • Provide forums that present both sides of an issue.
  • Build connections by engaging with community leaders, elected officials, and representatives from agency and district service providers.
  • Are given the opportunity to build leadership skills through trainings and the experience of operating a citizen organization.

Hillsboro Airport Parallel Runway

This summer, Hillsboro residents will notice some changes starting to occur at Hillsboro Airport as the Port of Portland begins construction on the new parallel runway. The parallel runway was identified in the 2003-2005 Hillsboro Airport Master Plan as a way to reduce congestion and delays while also improving efficiency at the airport. The runway will allow for a separation between departing/arriving aircraft and aircraft in the training patterns. The Port is reaching out to community members to provide information.

Those with questions or concerns are invited to contact Brooke Berglund at 503-415-6532 or brooke.berglund@portofportland.com
