Committee for Community Involvement

The Committee for Community Involvement (CCI) serves 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 comment and action to CCI.

Communications Subcommittee
Outlines communications standards and applications for the CPO Program.

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

CPO Re-envisioning Subcommittee
Provides input from community members to the County’s Re-envisioning project.


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

Volunteer Opportunities - Share your time and talents! There are CCI leadership positions open for community members nominated by their CPOs to be CCI representatives, or representatives from communities of interest. The Secretary position is open.

North Plains Mayor Teri Lenahan

This month North Plains Mayor Teri Lenahan will visit the Washington County CCI to introduce herself, share information about services the city provides and discuss plans for the future. These civic amenities include their Community Parks, the activities of the North Plains Events Association and the North Plains Library (part of the Washington County Cooperative Library Services).

Like a growing number of municipalities in Washington County, she will share how law enforcement and fire protection services are provided by contracts with Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue. Find out how water is supplied and how wastewater is treated in partnership with Clean Water Services.

Recology Organics processes a tremendous amount of the county’s wood waste and also composts household wastes for various cities. Find out how they came to be and what the future looks like for this facility just outside the North Plains city limits.

Although not in the Metropolitan Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), North Plains has its own UGB to manage. Mayor Lenahan will discuss the city’s Past, Present and Future growth plans.
