Agriculture

Washington County is home to a very diversified agricultural economy. In 2009, agricultural production in Washington County topped $4,106,865. Nursery and greenhouse crops accounted for about 50%; followed by grass and legumes 11%; berries 6%; tree fruits and nuts 5%;  grain and hay 4%; vegetable and truck crops 2%.

If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee. For more information visit the County's Transportation Funding page.

The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has purchased about 1.7 acres from the Beaverton School District.

THPRD and school district leaders signed an intergovernmental agreement last year that addresses shared access, shared parking and other issues besides the property sale. THPRD’s plan includes two full-size, multipurpose, synthetic turf sports fields with lights; a splash pad water play area; play equipment; permanent restrooms; a picnic area; walking path; and a community garden. Redevelopment will be funded by THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2016 and finish by spring 2017.

North Cooper Mountain Planning - Comment Online!

Over the last 18 months, the City of Beaverton has engaged area residents in concept planning for the Cooper Mountain area, which includes the South Cooper Mountain Annexation Area (in the City) as well as the North Cooper Mountain area and an Urban Reserve area that separates the two (unincorporated). Currently, planning work specific to the North Cooper Mountain area is transitioning from Beaverton to Washington County.

Washington County is developing community plan alternatives to guide the development of the North Cooper Mountain area. Amendments to the county’s Comprehensive Plan to address the North Cooper Mountain planning effort are expected to be considered by the County’s Planning Commission and Board of Commissioners in 2015.

For more information about the project, including a description of the Cooper Mountain Planning Area and Cooper Mountain Concept Plan, and to provide your input online, go to the PROJECT WEBSITE.

Leadership
  

Meets the second Monday of each month
at 7 pm in the North Plains Fire Station
31370 NW Commercial, North Plains
.


CPO 8 does not have any meetings planned at this time.


 

Your CPO needs you!

CPO 8 leadership has been held by interim leaders for the past year. If no citizen members come forward to take on roles to run CPO 8, the organization will be declared officially inactive in January 2015. Monthly CPO 8 newsletters will continue for the rest of 2014.

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.

If you are considering getting involved, a CPO Volunteer Orientation is being planned for September.

Find out more about the benefits of CPOs — including tools, resources, and leadership opportunities — as well as program basics. Interested? Contact Dan Schauer: 503-821-1123 or dan.schauer@oregonstate.edu

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

PROJECT WEBSITE


UPDATE:
Following the public hearing on June 17th, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided to refer a proposed countywide vehicle registration fee to the voters in November.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.

Attracting Bees and Pollinators
A Recap from CPO 10 August Meeting

CPO 10 heard all about bee health and beekeeping at its August 2014 meeting. According to the USDA bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion in added crop value, particularly for specialty crops such as almonds and other nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. Did you know about one mouthful in three in the diet directly or indirectly benefits from honey bee pollination?

Bees need help to ensure they have a healthy habitat and diet. Find out what you can do through gardening and other actions around your home and property. If you are interested in beekeeping, resources are available. Start here with the handouts brought to CPO 10.  

Oregon State Beekeepers Association - Getting started (1.6 MB .pdf)

Gardening for Bees - OSU Extension Service (2.7 MB .pdf)

Bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion in added crop value, particularly for specialty crops such as almonds and other nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. About one mouthful in three in the diet directly or indirectly benefits from honey bee pollination.

Packed agenda: water quality, Fernhill Wetlands Project, Gardening with Bees Program.

AGENDA

. . .


Water Quality in the Tualatin River Watershed

Presented by Jennifer Nelson
Program Manager, Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District

Did you know our water quality is getting better all the time? Jennifer will help us understand how healthy streamside buffers help protect water quality downstream, provide wildlife habitat, and even support pollinators.  She will update us on what the district has accomplished for you through their restoration program and share some ways in which you can attract and help pollinators like bees at your property.

 

Update on the Fernhill Wetlands Project

Presented by Victoria Lowe
Member of Fernhill Wetlands Council and instigator of Forest Grove’s Sustainability Committee

If you have driven by the Fernhill Wetlands since May, you have seen excavators and earth movers at work, transforming 90 acres of former sewage lagoons into natural treatment wetlands. The area was hydro-seeded and 750,000 more native plants were installed. Clean Water Services has designed the project as a showcase for innovative water treatment that also will enhance habitat greatly. Victoria will talk about these changes and its anticipated impacts on the region.

 

Oregon State University Gardening with Bees Program

Presented by Robert Falconer
Master Gardener with OSU Extenstion Service Washington County

Robert will provide information about the Gardening with Bees program. We will also have information for you to take home from Metro on Natural Gardening as well as brochures from the Xerces Society on “Establishing Pollinator Meadows from Seed”. Q&A. We will all go home with more ideas of how we can protect honey bees.

Focus Groups to Inform Strategic Plan for Washington County Disability, Aging and Veteran Services

Seeking Public Input
The County is seeking public input as they begin to develop their strategic plan for 2015-2017. Shrinking resources coupled with increased demainds for services makes it crucial to engage the community in the process. The purpose of the focus groups is to determine which issues are most important to older adults, veterans and people with disabilities.

The focus groups are scheduled for:

November 25, 1:30-3 pm
Beaverton Library, 12375 SW 5th Street

December 1, 1:30-3 pm
Forest Grove Community Auditorium, 1915 Main Street

December 2, 6-8 pm
Aloha American Legion Hall, Post 104, 20325 SW Alexander Street

For those who would like to provide input but are unable to attend a focus group, a survey will be available ONLINE.

ON THE BALLOT:
Proposed Countywide Vehicle Registration Fee

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.

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.
