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 normally meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the Fellowship Hall at Rose Villa, 13505 SE River Road Portland, OR 97222 from 7 PM to 9 PM. Everyone is welcome to attend. Additional meetings are also scheduled from time to time.
(Heads up: the meeting place for the Community Council will change next year. Starting with our first meeting in 2014, on January 22, the Council will meet at the Oak Grove United Methodist Church, 14700 SE Rupert Drive, Oak Grove. That's at the corner of Oak Grove Boulevard and Rupert Drive.)
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.

OGCC Holiday Meeting Schedule
Because of our busy holiday schedules, each year we have just one OGCC meeting for the months November and December. There is no November meeting, and the December meeting is scheduled for the FIRST Wednesday of the month (instead of the 4th). So the next meeting is December 4, 2013. The next meeting after that will resume the regular 4th Wednesday schedule (January 22, 2014).
