How does Clatsop County rate as a place to live, work and raise children? The Oregon Progress Board will give a snapshot of the community at the Clatsop County Economic Development Council forum June 25.

The Oregon Progress Board is an independent state planning and oversight agency created by the Oregon Legislature in 1989. Each year, the board measures each county's progress on a series of social, economic and environmental health benchmarks relating to the state's goals of quality jobs for all Oregonians, safe, caring and engaged communities and healthy, sustainable surroundings.

Jeff Tryens, executive director of the Oregon Progress Board, will present the most recent findings about our county and its residents and our progress in economics, education, civic engagement, social support, public safety and community development.

CEDC will also elect officers for 2002-03. The forum will be held at the Ocean View Resort at 414 N. Prom in Seaside. A no-host networking opportunity will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a prime rib dinner at 6:30 p.m. The program will begin at 7:15 p.m.

Dinner costs $16 per person and reservations are required. There is no charge to come and listen.

Dinner reservations should be made by 2 p.m. Thursday by calling the Clatsop County Department of Community Affairs at 325-7870.
