Clackamas County opens registration for HEAL Grants promoting community health

Applications are now being accepted for 2016 Healthy Eating Active Living grants promoting a healthier Clackamas County.

Grants of up to $8,000 are available to develop or enhance community-based projects supporting wellness for all ages. These projects should encourage the adoption of active lifestyles and healthy eating for county residents where they work, live and play. Projects must take place in and benefit the residents of Clackamas County. All grant applications are due by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 17. Recipients of the grants will be announced in January 2016.

The projects are awarded as part of the county’s Community Health Improvement Plan.

Many types of organizations may apply for grant funding. They include: adult centers, businesses, childcare facilities, cities, colleges, community coalitions, faith-based organizations, service organizations, schools and other such organizations serving county residents. Both for-profit and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply. Individuals are not eligible to apply.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that chronic diseases – such as heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes – are among the most prevalent, costly and preventable of all health problems. The goal of this grant effort is to reduce the prevalence of chronic disease and to empower residents to take steps toward improvement of their health.

For more information on how you can apply for funding for your own project, visit www.clackamas.us/publichealth/heal.html. For more information on the Community Health Improvement Plan, visitwww.clackamas.us/publichealth/documents/clackamas_chip.pdf.

For more information, members of the media and public may contact Kirsten Ingersoll, Community Engagement Coordinator for Clackamas County Health, Housing, and Human Services, Public Health Division, at 503-742-5954 or kingersoll@clackamas.us.

09-22-15 Commissioners welcome public discussion of marijuana land use issues on Thursday

During its weekly business meeting on Thursday, Sept. 24, the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners will offer the public a chance to comment on marijuana land use issues.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on the fourth floor of the county Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City. An accompanying information packet can be found at http://www.clackamas.us/bcc/documents/businesspackets/bcc20150924_4.pdf.

With new Oregon laws in place related to recreational and medical marijuana, the board is considering land use regulations for businesses involved in new marijuana commerce activities. A draft of those regulations, which the county was required to submit to the state by Sept. 21, is available by clicking the DRAFT County Regulations blue box on www.clackamas.us/planning/marijuana.html.

New county regulations are expected to be in place by the end of 2015, as the state is required to begin receiving business licensing applications related to marijuana starting in January.

All comments and points of view are encouraged at the Sept. 24 meeting. Since the meeting is not an official land use hearing, comments will not be considered official testimony regarding the draft regulations. The public is encouraged to submit testimony in writing or testify in person at land use public hearings to be held by the Planning Commission and the Board of Commissioners set for October, November and December.

Written testimony may be sent at any time to Shari Gilevich in the Planning & Zoning Division at sharig@clackamas.us, or by mail to 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City, OR 97045.

For more information, members of the media and public may contact Community Relations Specialist Ellen Rogalin at ellenrog@clackamas.us or 503-742-4274.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is now partnering with Las Vegas-based AlertID -- a private company that provides up-to-date information about crime, predatory sex offenders and other public-safety issues affecting local neighborhoods.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is the first law-enforcement agency in Oregon to make AlertID available to the community it serves.

Residents and Sheriff's Office members can sign up for this free service online at www.alertid.com/clackamas.


The AlertID network grows stronger and more effective as more members join the service. Sheriff's Office employees interacting with the public are encouraged to tell citizens concerned about crime trends in their area to sign up for the service at alertid.com/clackamas. Apartment managers curious about crimes occurring in their complexes may also find AlertID useful.

Again, you can learn more and sign up at alertid.com/clackamas.
