Forming Unique Partnerships

The City of Happy Valley is a vibrant community on the edge of the Portland Metro area. We have had the distinction for the past several years of being one of the fastest growing cities in the state of Oregon. To keep up with that growth and provide the type of customer service our residents deserve, we have learned the true meaning of the word partnership.

Happy Valley is unique in the fact that we provide most of our urban services through agreements with other agencies. We partner with the North Clackamas School District, the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District, and provide police services through a contract with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. Communities, schools, and businesses all succeed when we work together.
