Community Development

COVID-19 Update - The Office of Community Development will be open to public (physical) access starting April 5th, 2021. While it is not required, we recommend making an appointment before visiting our office. Staff and visitors will practice physical distancing and use of face covering is required during in-person visits. The public is encouraged to use other remote communication methods if possible. The Wood Stove Exchange Program and the Housing Rehabilitation programs have reopened with COVID-19 precautions in place. The public can also be assisted by calling 503-846-8814 or by emailing

Thank you. We wish you continued health in these uncertain times. As a reminder, if you or someone in your household is sick, please stay home.
