The Pacific City-Woods Citizen Advisory Committee (PC-W CAC) was organized to satisfy the Oregon state-wide Land Use Goal #1 – CITIZEN INVOLVEMENT. Goal #1 calls for each city and county to development a program for citizen involvement that insures the opportunity for all citizens to be involved in matters of importance to their communities, to the Board or other public entities.
The CAC’s or Citizen Advisory Committees were formed by the Tillamook County Planning Commission for the purpose of maintaining an active citizen interest not limited to land use actions, community planning, development code amendments, consideration of county and community services and special community studies in the unincorporated areas of Tillamook County. Order #13-034 (Appendix I to the By-Laws) filed May 1, 2013 and signed by the Tillamook County Commissioners gives the direction to the Citizen Advisory Committees for Tillamook County under the Statewide Planning Goal #1.
There are five CAC’s and they represent the unincorporated areas of Barview/Waseco, Netarts, Oceanside, Pacific City-Woods and Neskowin. The purpose of the CAC’s is to:
- Advise the Board of Commissioners, Tillamook County Planning Commission and the Department of Community Development on community issues in their respective areas.
- Provide and foster greater communication between these government groups and residents, land and business owners within the community.
- Disseminate information to the community to assist in their understanding of complex community issues and facilitate within the community.
