CPO Talk

CalendarContact Us

CPOTalk, an email and news discussion group, gives CPO members an opportunity to share information, seek advice on issues from members of other CPOs, hear about upcoming events and generally keep in touch with each other.

To sign up for the discussion group, please go to the following website to submit your request:

http://lists.oregonstate.edu/mailman/listinfo/cpotalk

To keep email messages to a minimum, you can elect to receive messages in digest form (one email a day with all messages received within a 24-hour period). 

CPOTalk is open to Washington County residents and persons owning businesses or properties within CPO boundaries and who also participate in their local CPO. The intent of the forum is to encourage and support citizen discussion of land-use issues relating to growth and development, transportation, affordable housing, natural resources, watersheds, and other matters that impact the livability of Washington County communities.

CPOTalk standards will mirror those for CPO meetings with an expectation of respectful dialogue, balancing the views presented on topics of interest, not promoting the aims/goals of other advocacy organizations, no campaigning for elective office and/or initiatives and no fundraising.

CPOTalk encourages postings that include, but are not limited to:

  • Sharing information and ideas on involving/recruiting Washington County citizens in the public processes that affect their community’s livability
  • Informing members within CPOs of emerging concerns or time-sensitive issues
  • Requesting specific information on topics of interest
  • Announcing events (workshops, training sessions, meetings, fairs, etc)
  • Posting articles or notices of general interest on land-use issues, ordinances, legislation, etc.

CPO coordinators also use CPOTalk to distribute information that is of general interest or which may be time-sensitive.

CPOTalk is a restricted discussion list which means that membership requires approval by the list administrator, Margot Barnett, Oregon State University Extension Service CPO program coordinator. The approval process will protect persons from receiving unrelated and unwanted emails. Emails to the discussion group will not be moderated (that is, reviewed before being distributed to the members). Members can set email preferences to receive either individual messages or a digest of all emails received during a day; the latter helps to control the number of emails received. If warranted, topics will also be archived.

For other information about CPOTalk, contact Margot Barnett at 503-821-1114.
