Info Session & Discussion

Please join us on Saturday, November 16th for an informational session and discussion of the new special district that has been created by the Oregon State Legislature to meet long-term flood safety needs along the Columbia River in Multnomah County, while also allowing for improved environmental stewardship in the managed floodplain and a more equitable distribution of costs based on services and benefits received.

This new special district will ultimately take over operating the local 27-mile levee system, which is currently managed by four century-old drainage districts: Peninsula Drainage District #1 (PEN 1), Peninsula Drainage District #2 (PEN 2), Multnomah County Drainage District (MCDD), and Sandy Drainage Improvement Company (SDIC).

Come learn more about the district, how things will change, what will stay the same, who will oversee the district, what role you can play, timelines, and more.

An RSVP is not required but is greatly appreciated!
