Multnomah County Planning Commission seeks new members

Multnomah County’s Land Use Planning Division is looking for two residents who live in Multnomah County to serve as volunteer members on the county’s Planning Commission.

The Multnomah County Planning Commission addresses rural land use planning issues to meet state planning requirements and policies set forth by Multnomah County’s Board of County Commissioners that apply to the county’s rural areas.

The Planning Commission typically makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners for adoption, revision or repeal of components of the Comprehensive Framework Plan, zoning code and other regulatory ordinances intended to carry out the plan as adopted by the board.

The Planning Commission typically meets on the first Monday of every month (except for holidays and the months of July and January) starting at 6:30 p.m. Most meetings take place at the Multnomah Building, 501 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd., Portland. The commission consists of nine members who serve four-year terms and are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.

Applications are due by close of business on Tuesday, Aug. 22. An online application is located here or may be requested via U.S. mail by calling 503-988-0168 or emailing adam.t.barber@multco.us. Applications may be submitted online or by mail.

For more information, please visit the Planning Commission’s webpage or Multnomah County’s Land Use Planning website.
