Your Community Planning Organization in Oak Grove
Welcome to the official website of the Oak Grove Community Council (OGCC), often called the "Oak Grove CPO".
The Community Council meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the Oak Grove United Methodist Church, 14700 SE Rupert Dr., Oak Grove, OR 97267 (map). Everyone is welcome to attend. Additional meetings are also scheduled from time to time.
(Some months have five Wednesdays. Just to be clear, we meet on the 4th Wednesday, not the last Wednesday of the month.)
We enthusiastically urge you to attend the meetings and join in the dialogue.

OGCC Board Meetings
The Executive Board of the OGCC normally meets once a month to review the previous month's meeting, to discuss plans for the upcoming monthly meetings, and to discuss community events and issues. The meetings are normally held on the first Wednesday of each month from 10 - 12 am at the fire station at 2930 SE Oak Grove Blvd, Oak Grove. All meetings are open to the public.
Note: At the September 2011 meeting, the Community Council approved changing the name of the Oak Lodge Community Council (OLCC) to the Oak Grove Community Council (OGCC). You may see some older text that still refers to the CPO with the old name.
