Some important decisions need to be made that will affect residents of Multnomah County and the whole region. We are asking for your input.
There is a group working to make sure that the Columbia River levee system prevents floods and meets federal requirements. The group is called Levee Ready Columbia and is made up of people from towns and cities along the Columbia River from North Portland, through Gresham and Fairview, out to the Sandy River in Troutdale.
A levee is a natural or human- made mound of earth. It re-routes the flow of water to prevent flooding. These levees protect:
- Natural areas
- Major highways
- The Marine Drive multi-use trail
- One of our region’s main sources of drinking water
- Portland International Airport
As this group plans for the future of the levees, it also considers how its decisions will affect the environment and communities that have been historically left out of public decision-making.
Your voice matters. You are a part of the community and your input means so much. Would you please complete this survey to share about your values and hopes for this important area along the Columbia River? Your input will help Levee Ready Columbia work with the community to plan the future of the levees.
Please fill out this survey if you live, work, or own a business in Multnomah County.
This survey will take just a few minutes to complete and will be open until July 5, 2019.
