Advisory committee to meet July 15 on Sauvie Island/Multnomah Channel plan

July 9, 2014

The Sauvie Island / Multnomah Channel Community Advisory Committee will meet on Tuesday, July 15 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Sauvie Island Academy gymnasium at 14445 NW Charlton Road.  The public is welcome to attend this meeting. 

The meeting will focus on reviewing the draft Rural Area Plan narrative and policies. This document is a result of a year-long planning process that involved the Community Advisory Committee, a Technical Advisory Committee, and the broader community. The draft plan is available for review on the project website at

A revised draft will be posted to the website after the July 15 meeting incorporating final changes as well as the final design.  The plan will then be presented at a hearing of the Multnomah County Planning Commission on August 4, the first of several public hearings scheduled in August and September.  The Board of County Commissioners will vote on the plan this fall.

Multnomah County is the local planning authority for the portions of Sauvie Island and the Multnomah Channel within the county.  The Community Advisory Committee provides input on policies related to the transportation and rural area plans.
