Clatsop County is accepting applications for representatives on six newly-forming citizen advisory committees as part of a two-year project to update the county’s six community plans and comprehensive plan.

County residents are sought to join representatives from other county boards and commissions in recruiting stakeholder input, advising staff and providing recommendations regarding the update of Clatsop County’s guiding planning documents.

The plan represents the long-term land use vision for the county and sets planning policies that guide county actions regarding land use, recreational amenities, transportation networks, farm and forest lands, natural resources, housing and other aspects of the county’s work, with a goal of making Clatsop County a resilient and sustainable place. This project will be the first complete update of the comprehensive pan since its original adoption in 1979.

Application forms are available from the county manager’s office at 800 Exchange St., Suite 410, Astoria or at

The deadline to apply is 4 p.m. Friday, March 1.
