Mount Hood area land use advisory group to gather for first public meeting at Church on the Mountain

This spring a group of Mount Hood area residents banded together to form their own community planning organization: the Hoodland CPO.

The Mt. Hood Corridor CPO formerly served the area between the Rhododendron CPO area and the Firwood CPO area east of Sandy. The new advisory group serves those residing between Lolo Pass and Cherryville, and residents are welcome as members of the CPO to attend and vote on issues raised at meetings.

The CPO is responsible for discussing and advising Clackamas County on local land use issues. The group provides a structured way for the unincorporated communities to have a voice at the county level on legislative changed within their boundaries.

The first community meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, at the Church on the Mountain, 68211 Highway 26, Welches.

According to CPO Board President Nora Gambee: "At the Sept. 29 meeting we'll discuss guidelines for working together as a community, share planning proposals on the table to get your feedback to understand issues and concerns."

"Our gratitude and thanks to Pastor Thomas Robinson and the elders at the Church on the Mountain as well as Katie Wilson and Stacy Davenport with the Clackamas County Planning for their support and leadership," Gambee added.

The board membership is as follows:

  • President — Nora Gambee
  • Vice President — Dave Lythgoe
  • Secretary — Marti Bowne
  • Treasurer — Pat Erdenberger
  • Member at Large — Jenni Rogers
