North Clackamas Park

In 2006, A group of citizens in Clackamas County requested assistance from Oregon Consensus (OC) to help turn what had become a polarized, highly-charged community conflict into a collaborative process around the land use approval and development of North Clackamas Park.  With assistance from OC, the county and citizens reached agreement that the citizens would support approval of a slightly modified land use permit application based on the County’s agreement to establish an ongoing North Clackamas Park Stewardship Committee.  OC provided assistance in establishing the Stewardship Committee as a collaborative process with all the interests represented, and provided facilitation services until the Committee was prepared to operate on its own.
