This document represents a chapter of the West of the Sandy River Rural Plan. The focus of this chapter addresses a smaller section within the study area which is zoned Rural Center (RC). In October, 1998 Community-Wide Solutions (CWS), a consulting team working with County staff, contracted to research, study, and draft a plan for the Orient Rural Center. The Orient Rural Center is an "unicorporated community" for which state law requires the County to plan (OAR 660-22).

This chapter of the West of the Sandy River Rural Area Plan examines the land uses, history and possible futures for the Orient area. CWS contacted and spoke with interested citizens, held an open house in January and convened a second public meeting in February to present potential solutions to the issues raised at January's Open House.


Client: City of Gresham, Multnomah County, Orient Rural Center
