Here is a helpful storyboard to assist you with learning more about the function and purpose of Land Use Planning and Comprehensive Plans in Oregon:


The City of Happy Valley is embarking on a land use and transportation plan that will guide the future of the Pleasant Valley/North Carver (PV/NC) area.

This is an exciting time for the area, as this plan will allow the expansion of quality public services, such as police, schools and parks, as well as offer community members a voice in the planning process. The plan will build off the efforts of the adjacent (to the west) East Happy Valley Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009, and provide direction for the City’s overall Comprehensive Plan.


Community Provides Vision for the Pleasant Valley/North Carver Comprehensive Plan

The PV/NC Comprehensive Plan process is underway. The City formed a Community Advisory Committee (CAC)  and Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to help develop the plan and assist with community outreach. Five CAC meetings have occurred since October 2018, with approximately four more planned.   Read more about the CAC at  For information on the planning work done to date, please see the Helpful Links section.

In addition to the CAC, community members will have plenty of opportunities to hear about area land use and transportation plans, and to provide input on how police, schools, parks and public services should be provided. Please participate in the April 18 and April 25 community workshops at Happy Valley City Hall (see Events section) and stay tuned for the winter 2020 community outreach event. Your input will help develop the community vision for the Comprehensive Plan.
