Office of Community Involvement
The Office of Community Involvement (OCI) was created by voters in Multnomah County in 1984. It is charged with developing and maintaining community involvement programs and procedures to facilitate direct communication between the community and the Board of County Commissioners. OCI staffs the Community Involvement Committee (CIC), a committee composed of 15 volunteers that seeks to ensure community involvement in county decision-making. We also supports the county's Budget Advisory Committees, which review and make recommendations on departmental budgets and operations. In addition, our Office reaches out to communities throughout the County to involve, inform, and integrate people who live, work or own property within its borders into decision-making within County government.
