Jurisdictional Partners

What is a jurisdictional partner?

The Johnson Creek Watershed includes parts of two counties (Clackamas and Multnomah) and five cities (Damascus, Gresham, Happy Valley, Milwaukie, and Portland). Jurisdictional representatives are jurisdictional staff members voluntarily assigned by their respective jurisdictions to the JCWC board of directors in an ex-officio (non voting) capacity. The intent of having jurisdictional representatives serve on the JCWC board is to ensure successful communication and close coordination between the Watershed Council and the watershed jurisdictions with whom we work closely and cooperatively. Though non-voting board members, jurisdictional representatives advise and make recommendations to the board.
