The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual report and audit for fiscal year 2021-2022 are now available. Fiscal year 2021-2022 covers the period from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.
(Oregon Revised Statute 568.580 requires soil and water conservation districts to produce an annual report: “Each year after the creation of the first board of directors at a time fixed by resolution of the board, the board, by giving due notice, shall call an annual meeting of the landowners in the district and present an annual report and audit.”)
Message from the General Manager
Working creatively was again asked of staff as COVID-19 concerns continued. Operating in a virtual environment is taxing and hinders collaboration and impromptu discussions, yet we added staff to provide technical assistance that protects water quality in our Strategic Implementation Area.
We also formalized our commitment to develop a new Land Management Program by appointing a program manager.
This last year brought:
- Increased awareness of our online resources to assist residents with property management.
- Education and recognition of how historical inequities reduce resources to underserved communities and a new commitment to use a cultural diversity lens when evaluating services to our constituents.
- Continued responsibility to be tasked as a resource in post-wildfire rehabilitation and risk reduction from the wildfires of 2020 and a need to define that role in relation to other commitments.
Thank you to all the agencies, organizations, and individuals that work in cooperation with us to deliver conservation programs. With your assistance, we continue to make great strides in providing conservation resources and solutions.
