Clackamas County reopens several departments to public
A handful of Clackamas County departments will open to the public with limited hours on Monday, June 22.
Following the closure of all public buildings in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic back in March, both the Development Services Building and Public Services Building at the county's Red Soils campus in Oregon City are set to reopen from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m, Monday through Thursday to continue serving local residents in-person.
These two buildings — located at 150 Beavercreek Road and 2051 Kaen Road — house several departments that serve many county citizens on a day-to-day basis, including assessment and taxation; business and community services; health, housing and human service; transportation and development; as well as water environment services.
Other departments will continue offering virtual services. While most departments/divisions listed above offer both walk-in and appointment visits, some can only offer appointment visits at this time. Residents are strongly encouraged to first contact specific departments for clarification regarding open services. A full list of department operations in the buildings will be up by Friday, June 19.
The closure of many county buildings to the public was taken to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and best protect the health of the public and county employees. County staff have continued to provide needed services through web-based offerings, and will continue to do so.
Extensive health and safety protocols have been instituted in order to minimize any potential health risk to visiting members of the public and staff. These include:
