New Oregon Law Means More People Can Serve!

A new law, Senate Bill 775, now allows more people to run for board positions in counties with 250,000 or more residents. This affects five counties: Clackamas, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, and Washington, and the seven conservation districts within them. Now, any registered voter living in a conservation district zone can run for board positions, either for at-large seats or in their own zone.

Before this law was passed, you had to own or manage 10 acres of land to run for these positions. The change means more people can help lead, making the boards more diverse and better reflecting the community. Anyone who wants to run must still collect signatures and file paperwork with the Oregon Department of Agriculture to appear on the ballot in November.

Who Can Be a Board or Associate Board Member?

Anyone living in the District’s boundaries who cares about farm and forest conservation, habitat restoration, and helping the community is welcome to run. People from different backgrounds are encouraged to share their unique perspectives.

“We believe that including everyone in decision-making leads to better results for people and the planet,” says Lisa Kilders, Assistant Manager at Clackamas SWCD. “By letting community members serve on our board, we are making sure all voices are heard and building a better future for everyone.”
