Neighborhood outreach

Neighborhoods throughout the county work through their associations and influence many county decisions. If you don't have a neighborhood association in your area, you may want to form one. For information about how to form a neighborhood association, call the Public Information and Outreach office at (360) 397-6012 ext. 5.

Here are some of the services the county provides to participating neighborhood associations:

  • Provides general assistance to the association through the support of the Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator, who serves as the primary point of contact between the county and the neighborhoods.
  • Clark County Sheriff’s Office provides Deputy liaisons for each association.
  • Mails a weekly information packet to neighborhood leaders that includes information about upcoming meetings and news of interest.
  • Maintains a list of guest speakers for neighborhood association meetings.
  • Provides free printing of monthly neighborhood newsletters and two annual neighborhood mailings.
  • Provides and posts neighborhood association identification signs.

Participating in a neighborhood association can be enjoyable as well as productive. Associations have an impact on numerous county decisions. Most neighborhood associations advertise their meeting times, dates, and locations in the Neighbors section of The Columbian newspaper. You can also call the president of your local group for the next meeting time and date. You may want to volunteer to deliver meeting notices in your area or help with a project.
