About the Award
The Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award celebrates those who do work that provides benefits such as:
fostering positive leadership;
bringing clarity to complex Washington County issues;
informing or shaping decisions through community input, especially through substantial efforts that have a positive impact;
inclusive community engagement that broadens and diversifies participation, especially with younger populations and historically under-represented communities;
building trust, transparency and responsiveness in government.
The award was created in 1998 following the death of Dr. Harold M. Haynes of Forest Grove. Haynes was a citizen statesman and constant advocate for State Land Use Goal 1, which requires citizen involvement in all phases of planning.
