Oregon Solutions: Tillamook Flood Reduction Project

Following major flooding in Oregon's coastal town of Tillamook, Governor Ted Kulongoski designated an Oregon Solutions project, convened by two local leaders (State Senator Betsy Johnson and Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart), to prioritize projects on the ground that would alleviate the social, economic, and political damage such floods cause. The Oregon Solutions Team signed a Declaration of Cooperation outlining the top prioritized projects, including how funding and permits might be obtained, and the team has been implementing the 9 priority projects.
