Thinking About Getting Involved?
One way for citizens to be informed and have an impact on land use and transportation issues is to get involved in their local Citizen Participation Organization (CPO). There are 15 CPOs in Washington County, organized geographically. They are coordinated by Oregon State University's County Extension Office. Go to Washington County OSU Extension Service or call 503-725-2300 to be put on their mailing list and receive meeting information.
LUT also has citizen committees to help guide our work. Some are permanent, like the Planning Commission, the Rural Roads Operations and Maintenance Advisory Committee, and the Urban Road Maintenance District Advisory Committee. Some are temporary, as when a Project Advisory Committee is set up to provide guidance on a particular capital project. Please contact us if you would like to learn more; call 503-846-4963.
If you’d rather help in a more outdoors, hands on way, consider Adopting a Road! You and your colleagues can find a stretch of roadway in which you can take special pride. Call Adopt-a-Road at 503-846-7619.
