Multnomah County’s Land Use Planning Division is looking for a Multnomah County resident to serve as a volunteer member 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 the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners.
The planning commission makes recommendations to the board for adoption, revision or repeal of the comprehensive plan, zoning code and other regulatory ordinances. Meetings are usually on the first Monday of every month (except for holidays and the month of August) starting at 6:30 p.m. Most meetings take place either virtually or at the Multnomah Building, 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd., in Portland. The commission consists of nine members who serve four-year terms and are appointed by the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners.
