Annual-Work-Program

Each year, the Long Range Planning Section of the Planning and Development Services Division prepares a draft work program for approval by the Washington County Board of Commissioners (Board). The work program describes planning projects, potential land use ordinances, and other Long Range Planning activities for the year.

A draft annual work program is presented to the Board of Commissioners at the beginning of each year and then released by the Board to the public and interested parties for review and comment in early spring. Upon consideration of public comments submitted through this process, the Board of Commissioners finalizes the work program for adoption soon after.

Suggestions for planning projects, potential land use ordinances and other activities for the 2015-16 Long Range Planning annual work program can be submitted for consideration by emailing lutplan@co.washington.or.us or contacting Long Range Planning at 503-846-3519.

The adopted 2015 Annual Work Program is posted in its entirety online here
