The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Relocation Project is occurring in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Feasibility study and program proposal

  • Phase 2: Identification and acquisition of property

  • Phase 3: Design and construction of new facility

The project team has completed the first phase, which includes an extensive feasibility study. The findings of this study included:

  • Establishing a base building and site program requirements and options

  • Establishing a property search area and conducting a cursory review of available properties

  • Identifying multiple options for project scope

  • Developing conceptual project cost estimates for all alternatives

Currently, the project team is in phase two.  On December 8, 2016, the Multnomah County Board of Commissioner approved the purchase of site 1, in Troutdale for potential MCSO use.
