Cottrell hamlet talks squelched


The Cottrell Community Planning Organization won't be talking about a hamlet in the unincorporated area anytime soon.

The body overwhelmingly voted not to discuss Clackamas County's quasi-governmental designation after the majority of people present at the Oct. 12 CPO meeting spoke out against a hamlet. Board member Phyllis Dutcher had originally planned to give a short presentation on the pros and cons of a hamlet, but abandoned that plan after encountering opposition.
