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%.  

Washington County is served by twelve OSU Extension area agricultural faculty based in several counties. A variety of educational programs are offered during the year for commercial growers and pesticide applicators. In addition to group educational programs and field research, Extension faculty spend time with commercial growers individually.

Citizen Participation Organization Program

PROGRAM UPDATE

From Your OSU Extension Service Staff

Following the announcement in November 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 13th. 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 year ahead for CPO participants, the community at-large, and County partners to be involved in the transition process. 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. Please sign up and join the discussion: http://washcocpofuture.wordpress.com/

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.

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

ANNEX, INCORPORATE, OR WHAT?

CPO 3 Now Has a Subcommittee on Governance

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.


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 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.

 

General philosophy of water protection vs treatment:
savings and other benefits
• Restoration and maintenance of local streams/wetlands,
homeowner resources, volunteer opportunities
• Stream protection in new developments: stream setbacks,
steep slopes - pertinent to Area 93/Bonny Slope UGB
expansion
• Daylighting stream opportunities – Beaverton activities,
• How CWS works with county development to mitigate
impacts of new development

                


River Terrace Community Plan Adopted

At a December 16th public hearing, Tigard City Council approved a Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPA) to adopt the River Terrace Community Plan and several related documents and maps.

    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.

    TVF&R Seeks Zone Change to Allow Sale of Property Under Residential Designation
    Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) is seeking an amendment to the Bethany Community Plan for the recently decommissioned fire station located at 3260 NW 147th Place. The amendment would change the designation from Institutional (INST) to Residential (R-6), for the purpose of listing the property for sale and subsequent residential use. The designation change to R-6 will match the zoning of all the surrounding residential properties. TVF&R recently completed construction of Fire Station 68 at 13545 NW Evergreen to meet growing population service needs of the area. Fire protection services are no longer provided at the old fire station located on NW 147th Place. TVF&R representatives will attend the February 26th meeting of the CPO 7 Steering Committee – all neighbors are welcome to attend.

    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.

    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

    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.

    MEETING PROGRAM

    A study on broadband (high-speed) Internet use in Oregon shows the rates of broadband use in the Portland region, including all of Washington County, are among the state’s highest. However, rural CPO members have expressed concerns about barriers to affordable, reliable high speed Internet service.

    In an effort to gain a better understanding of whether high speed Internet connectivity in rural Washington County is a problem, we are posing these questions:

    • Looking at the research on high speed Internet in the Portland region, do the measures of connectivity appear to fit with the reality experienced by our County’s rural community members?
    • Does rural high speed Internet connectivity need to be improved?
    • What might the longer-term risks be if rural high speed Internet connectivity lags behind? Consider the rural contexts for education, youth development, economic development and prosperity, agriculture, public health and safety, government and community information, arts, and culture.
    • Is high-speed Internet service affordable? What are the ways affordability is measured?
    • What is the future of Internet infrastructure in rural areas?

    Join us to engage with an expert panel of speakers from the Metropolitan Area Communications Commission and large and small Internet service provider firms. Our district’s County Commissioner, Bob Terry, is planning to attend.

    PANEL OF EXPERTS

    Fred Christ, Policy Manager, MACC-Metropolitan Area Communications Commission
    Tim Goodman, Government Affairs, Comcast
    Jeanne Danielson, General Manager, Washington/Yamhill Counties, Frontier Communications
    Tim Miller, Whiz to Coho, Inc.

     


       

    A Recap from CPO 10 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.

    CPO 15 Meeting
    Wednesday, March 18th, 2015 

    AGENDA

    A study on broadband (high-speed) Internet use in Oregon shows the rates of broadband use in the Portland region, including all of Washington County, are among the state’s highest. However, rural CPO members have expressed concerns about barriers to affordable, reliable high speed Internet service.

    Join us to engage with an expert panel of speakers from the Metropolitan Area Communications Commission and large and small Internet service provider firms. Our district’s County Commissioner, Bob Terry, is planning to attend.

    CPOs hold public meetings, and all are welcome. This is a joint meeting between CPOs 10 and 15.

    Recap from the 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:
