Body
RECOMMENDED ACTION (Motion):
No action required.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
The City of Oregon City is launching OC2040, a citywide effort to update the Oregon City Comprehensive Plan that will guide land use decisions over the next 20 years. The first step in the process is to create a Community Vision that reflects what community members love and want to preserve about Oregon City, and what they would like to see change by 2040.

Though the community will be involved in each step of the project, the targeted efforts of gathering the vision of community members will span six months from May - October of 2020. The process will be followed by assembling the feedback into a Community Vision from October - January.
