Futures of STRs, HD 52 rep to be debated posted on 09/01/2022

The Clackamas County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) are expected to hold a final public hearing of the repeal of county regulations for Short Term Rentals (STRs) in the unincorporated areas of the county during September. The hearing was initially scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 8 during a meeting in June, but the county could not confirm this as an agenda item as of Monday, Aug. 29.

15 community members from the Mountain community spoke at the June meeting, and public comments are expected to be received during a potential September meeting. The commissioners were expected to hold policy sessions this summer in an attempt to draft an alternative program before the September meeting.

For agendas on upcoming BCC meetings, visit https://www.clackamas.us/bcc. More information about STRs is available online at https://www.clackamas.us/planning/str.

The BCC will also hold a joint session on Wednesday, Sept. 7 with commissioners from Hood River and Multnomah Counties following the resignation of State Rep. Anna Williams to interview candidates and select a replacement for the open House District 52 position. Oregon law requires that a legislative vacancy be filled by county commissioners representing the district in which the vacancy exists. House District 52 spreads across parts of the three counties.

Finalists were selected by the local Democratic Party (as outlined by state law), since Williams belongs to that party. County commissioners have no involvement in the selection of finalists.  The three finalists are: Kristen Dillon, Lori Kuechler and Nicholas Walden Poublon.

The person selected will fill the remainder of Williams’ term, which runs through December of this year.

The meeting will be held from 3-5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7, over Zoom. The public is welcome to virtually attend the proceedings over Zoom and provide comments during the designated time.  Connectivity information can be found at https://www.clackamas.us/meetings/bcc/other/2022-09-07.  The meeting will be posted later to the county’s YouTube channel and the Clackamas County Government Channel.
