Citizen Participation Organization Program



From Your OSU Extension Service Staff

For 40 years, Oregon State University Extension Service has partnered with Washington County to support the CPO Program. Oregon State University and Washington County Extension Service staff have sincerely appreciated the opportunity to serve as contractor and steward of this important program, and have been fortunate to work with the dedicated volunteer leaders and community members involved.

To best meet the CPO Program’s mission, OSU Extension Service has re-evaluated its institutional strengths and role in delivery of the CPO Program. OSU Extension Service has informed the County of a decision that it will no longer serve as the administrator of the Washington County CPO Program. The program will transition over the next year after which time Washington County will assume program administration.

At this time, details such as a transition plan and timeline still need to be determined. CPO participants, the Committee for Citizen Involvement (CCI), the community at-large, and partners will be given ample opportunities to provide input. This transition will be made carefully and deliberately, including dialogue and a planning process that will ensure the CPO Program’s future success and continued longevity.

On Tuesday, December 16th, from 7-9 pm, the CCI will be hosting County administrators and the OSU Extension Service Regional Administrator in regard to a program transition plan from OSU Extension Service to Washington County. The meeting will take place at the TVF&R North Operating Center Community Room, 20665 SW Blanton St, Aloha 97007.

Please note that daily operations remain unchanged. If you have any questions, please contact CPO Coordinator Dan Schauer at 503-821-1123.
