Levee Ready Columbia at Oregon's Kitchen Table


Levee Ready Columbia - Values and Beliefs

If you live in, work in, or own a business in Multnomah County and the surrounding areas, now is the time to help shape important decisions that will affect our region!Along the Columbia River - from Smith and Bybee Lakes near Historic Vanport to the Portland Airport and to the Sandy River in Troutdale - a levee is protecting us from flooding.

Now a group of over 20 organizations that has been working on making sure the levee system meets federal requirements to prevent flooding, wants to hear from you. From June 3 to July 5th, go to Oregon’s Kitchen Table to let that group, Levee Ready Columbia, know your thoughts about the future of the Columbia River Levee. We will also be holding listening sessions in Spanish, Russian, Somali, Chinese, and Vietnamese during the month of June.  

The areas around the Columbia River Levee are home to neighborhoods, businesses, natural areas, major highways, trails, airports recreation, parks, and one of our region’s main sources of drinking water.  Share your values and hopes for this important part of our region. Your input will help Levee Ready Columbia work with the community to plan the future of the levees.

Survey responses will be received until July 5, 2019 and compiled by Oregon’s Kitchen Table to ensure their anonymity.  We will share a summary of responses later this summer. So pull up a chair today at Oregon’s Kitchen Table – it will take you less than 10 minutes!  

We also encourage you to share this e-mail or the link http://bit.ly/leveereadycolumbia widely with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues in the area.  In addition to English, the survey is available in Spanish and Russian.
