Committee for Community Involvement

The Committee for Community Involvement (CCI) serves as an advisory body to the Washington County Board of Commissioners. The mission of the CCI is to encourage and empower public involvement.

The CCI plays an important role in ensuring that the voices of the community are considered when decisions are being made.

Since 1973, the CCI has provided a direct line of communication between residents and county government and has been dedicated to the success of community participation in government decision-making processes. The CCI is a vital part of the Washington County CPO Program, which is made up of 17 Community Participation Organizations (CPOs) led by volunteers with a membership from the communities they serve.


CCI membership consists of two representatives from each recognized CPO. Per the CCI bylaws, additional members may participate based on these distinctions:

  • Each CPO is allowed two CCI alternates.
  • Inactive CPOs are allowed two CCI reps, as approved by the CCI.
  • CCI reps are allowed from communities of interest.
  • CCI subcommittee chairs may also participate as CCI reps.


CCI subcommittees focus on specific areas of community interest. You can volunteer to participate in a subcommittee by emailing the CCI Leaders at [email protected]

Code and Ordinance Subcommittee
Focuses on Washington County land use development issues, reviewing recommended codes and ordinances and providing suggested comments and actions to CCI. Currently the chair position is vacant.

Communications Subcommittee
Works to improve ways the CPOs and CCI can communicate with the public, including correcting and improving the OEICE and other county web pages relating to public involvement, assisting CPOs in maintaining credibility of public communications, advising LUT on improvements to its communications, and other topics related to CPO/CCI communications internally and with the public. The subcommittee studies intent, content, and technology.

Significant Natural Resources Subcommittee
Follows the County's process for developing Significant Natural Resources standards.

Transportation Subcommittee
Details to come.


The CCI Steering Committee and subcommittees are led by community volunteers. Each committee holds monthly meetings. See upcoming meeting information below.
