City of North Plains

North Plains is a small, growing semi-rural city 17 miles west of Downtown Portland on the edge of Oregon’s innovative Silicon Forest, and less than an hour from the Oregon Coast. With over 3,400 residents and 160 businesses, our gradual and thoughtful growth over the years has helped to maintain a friendly, small-town atmosphere. The community is about to add 1,300 new residents and is finishing an urban growth boundary study, where the city is expected to add several hundred acres to accommodate housing and jobs. North Plains residents enjoy the benefits of a well-managed inventory of improved streets, parks, bike/pedestrian infrastructure, and water systems, as well as easy access to major employers, recreation, entertainment, and nature. The City and URA are investing in the commercial core with a goal of becoming a complete community, and the right planner will be essential in helping the City achieve this goal. We support our employees and are looking for an enthusiastic individual to be part of our team.
