Stafford to hold town hall

A Town Hall for the Stafford Hamlet is scheduled April 19 from 9:30 a.m. to noon, with registration beginning at 9 a.m. This important meeting will be held at Athey Creek Middle School, 2900 Borland Road.

'This is a very important Town Hall,' said Scott Richmond of the Hamlet, 'and Hamlet members are urged to attend.'

The focus of the Town Hall is on 'Assets, Issues, and Opportunities - what is important to the Stafford Hamlet and where we should focus our future efforts.'

Throughout March and a couple of weeks into April, the Hamlet has sponsored 10 neighborhood meetings to collect people's thoughts on the assets, issues, and opportunities facing the Hamlet.

'The Town Hall will provide the opportunity for the community at large to hear what specific topics emerged during these discussions,' Richmond said, 'and work together to explore and fine-tune them.'

Following the Town Hall, the Hamlet Board and Vision Committee will develop a report outlining key concerns of the Hamlet that will guide the next phases of the development of the Community Vision Plan.

The Stafford Hamlet is developing this plan through a consensus-driven process that involves as many of the Hamlet members as possible, Richmond said, and is striving for consensus and unity of purpose and vision.

Assisting the Hamlet in this process is the Oregon Consensus Program, the Clackamas County Dispute Resolution Center and the planning firm of Moore Iacofano Goltsman.
