Administrative transition of the CPO Program

From Your OSU Extension Service Staff

Following the announcement in November 2014 by Oregon State University Extension Service that it will no longer serve as administrator of the Washington County CPO Program in the future, here is more information about the transition.

Daily operations of the CPOs remain unchanged. County administrative staff, with input from CPO representatives on the Committee for Citizen Involvement (CCI), developed a transition process, which was approved by the Board of Commissioners at their worksession on January 13, 2015. The proposal includes timeline and planning-level details.

Click the Washington County's web page for all its published information on the program transition. 

There will be opportunities in the transition process for CPO participants, the community at-large, and County partners to be involved. Follow the County's web page and your CPO Program communications regularly for updates, links and key documents. You also can check the CCI page to follow its activity. All CCI meetings are open to the public. A CPO leader has started a community blog to get more people talking about how to maintain and improve a successful participation system in Washington County. You can sign up and join the discussion: http://washcocpofuture.wordpress.com/

OSU Extension Service sincerely appreciates serving the Washington County community. If you have any questions, please contact CPO Program Coordinators Dan Schauer, 503-821-1123, or Beth St. Amand, 503-821-1114.

Sincerely,

OSU Extension Service Staff

AGENDA

. . .

Alternative Senior Housing

Being able to “age in place” by creating housing which supports the needs of senior citizens is an important quality of life issue, since Washington County has the fastest growing age 50+ population in the region. Three groups will share their vision and work.

 

7:30 pm / Viva Village, presented by Nancy Miller

Viva Village is a Portland-area nonprofit network of adults with a common goal to care for and support each other so they can live in their own homes and stay engaged in the community for as long as desired. This is part of the national Village movement. More than 125 villages exist nationally as a result of grass-roots efforts undertaken by ordinary people, including seven in the Portland-metro area.  

MORE ABOUT VIVA VILLAGE

 

8:00 pm / Bridge Meadows, presented by Derenda Schuberrt

Bridge Meadows is a nationally-known, local nonprofit specializing in intergenerational housing for adoptive families of foster children. The nonprofit blends seniors, youth and foster families into a supportive community. Bridge Meadows is planning to purchase property owned by Beaverton Christian Church as well as surrounding property owners. The nonprofit hopes to build a two-story community of 37 units that will be home to low-income seniors and families in the process of adopting foster children. 

MORE ABOUT BRIDGE MEADOWS

 

8:30 pm / Micro Community Concepts, presented by Michael Withey

Micro Community Concepts is raising funds and organizing volunteers to develop a micro-community in the Portland area with the goal to have low-income people living in a safe and affordable community without needing government rent subsidies.

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.

At the CPO 3 February 19th meeting, a motion was passed to form a Governance Subcommittee to study annexation, incorporation and the status quo, and what it could mean for CPO 3 in the future. This committee will collect and disseminate information to the CPO for a possible decision.

The subcommittee held its first meeting on March 24th; the next meeting will be set soon. For more information, contact cpo3chair@gmail.com or cpo3.breuner@comcast.net.


Some Good Resources

A number of CPO 3 meetings in the past year have been dedicated to this issue. CPO 3 resident Erich Breuner pulled together some statistics specific to CPO 3 and prepared an informative presentation. See Erich's presentation from the CPO 3 meeting in September 2014, Local Control, for more information regarding annexation or contact Erich directly by email at cpo3.breuner@comcast.net.

The League of Oregon Cities has valuable annexation and incorporation publications, including the City Handbook (pgs 1-4 through 1-6) and the Guide to City Incorporation in Oregon.

CPO 4B Hot Topics


CPO 4B Considering Possible Boundary Changes

A presentation, discussion and a possible vote will be held on revising CPO 4B’s boundaries.

The first part of the proposal is to modify the western boundary which would also affect CPO 10’s boundary.

The proposal would:

  • include River Terrace
  • move the boundary below River Terrace to end at Roy Rogers Road.

CPO 4K has also proposed changing its boundaries which would affect CPO 4B’s southwest boundary.

The proposal would:

  • adjust the 4B/4K boundary extending CPO 4K west to Roy Rogers Road and north to Beef Bend Road
  • move the boundary below River Terrace to end at Roy Rogers Road.

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.

At this time the Chair and Vice Chair (Bethany) positions are vacant. Consider getting involved! Email cpo7chair@gmail.com or contact Beth St. Amand at beth.stamand@oregonstate.edu or 503-821-1114. Leadership training is provided.

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.

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

CPO 8 Hot Topics

 

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

Your CPO needs you! To be active, a CPO needs volunteers.

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.

Get involved!

Special Meeting!
Wednesday, April 15, 7pm

AGENDA

. . . 

Join us for the second meeting on high-speed Internet connectivity in rural Washington County!

There were more than 100 in attendance at the first meeting on March 18th. The level of concern expressed about access (or the lack of) to good broadband is high and warrants a follow-up meeting to address more specifically some solutions to Internet issues in our rural areas. 

At this meeting we are inviting more providers that serve our area, including wireless services, to tell you more about their options that may be available to you now, or in the future if expansion is feasible.

Our March 18th panel of experts represented a number of providers in the area. Because of relatively low population density, topographical barriers, and greater geographical distances, good broadband service is more difficult to obtain in many areas of our predominantly rural CPOs. Broadband service provides higher speed data transmission, allowing more content to be carried through the “pipeline” and access to the full range of services and opportunities available via the Internet.

Our rural community should begin advocating now for better access to broadband Internet services. In addition, our community needs more informational and educational resources about the best options for what works in our rural areas. The “serviceability” of the rural market, as we’re learning, depends on return on investment and business models, as well as keeping pace with technology and the regulatory environment. Our community members with technical expertise are also talking about the need for rural customers to have better knowledge about the equipment that brings the Internet to their property and homes.

Please come to our follow-up meeting Wednesday, April 15th,(tax day so you can easily remember it), 7 pm, at the same locale, the Forest Hills Golf Course, 36260 SW Golf Course Road, Cornelius, 97113. Visit the CPO Program online at http://extension.oregonstate.edu/washington/cpo for a brief summary of the types of Internet service described at the March 18th meeting (DSL, fiber optic, wireless cards and cellular service, cable, satellite, and wireless via tower-to-tower transmission). Other informational resources are being gathered. When this information has been posted, we will email our subscribers.

A Recap from the February Meeting

Willamette Water Supply Project

A guest speaker discussed the proposed Willamette Water Supply Project, which aims to develop the mid-Willamette River as an additional water supply. A new water treatment plant would be built in Wilsonville on the Willamette River, and new pipes would be routed up through Washington County. Tualatin Valley Water District’s Marlys Mock gave an update, showed the route options for pipes, and took questions about the project.

Hillsboro and the Tualatin Valley Water District are the founding partners, and other water providers are being sought to join. Route options for the new pipes have been analyzed for feasibility and to consider public input, which has been collected in a series of Open Houses and CPO meetings.

PROJECT INFO  

 

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.

A Recap from January Meeting

Texting While Driving

A Washington County Sheriff’s Office Deputy and a Program Educator from the Department of Land Use and Transportation presented compelling reasons why we just cannot take this risk.

CPO 15 learned some of the latest scientific findings on the impact that technology has on attention and focus. We are all tempted to answer that phone or return a message while driving. If you want to know more evidence, listen to a rebroadcast of a Diane Rehms Show from December 26, 2014, with an interview by Matt Richtel who wrote A Deadly Wanderingthedianerehnshow.org/audio/#/shows2014-12-26/matt_richtel_a_deadly_wandering_rebroadcast/00.00

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.

CPO members may approach CPO coordinators to form a group to address an issue or concern that may span beyond a CPO's boundaries and in which other CPO's may have an interest. Examples of groups that have been formed include:

  • New Regulations for Cell Towers Group
  • Noise Control Group
  • Tree Code Group: for more information on this group please see www.washcotreegroup.org

None of these above groups are currently active. If you would like more information on starting a Community of Interest Group please contact Dan Schauer, 503-821-1123, dan.schauer@oregonstate.edu; or Beth St. Amand, 503-821-1114, beth.stamand@oregonstate.edu.
