Columbia-Willamette, Oregon/Washington: Award Winning Coalition

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


In November 1994, the Portland Clean Cities Coalition became the 28th Clean City. And Number 28 took off and quickly picked up speed. By the end of 1999, the group had grown so much that it sought re-designation under a new name-the Columbia-Willamette Clean Cities Coalition-to better reflect the much larger geographical area it had come to represent. The coalition now represents two states,encompassing much of southwest Washington and most of Oregon. Several municipal agencies, along with many private companies, are participating in Vancouver, Washington; and in Portland, Eugene, and Salem, Oregon. With this geographical expansion came an increase in stakeholders, and in 1999 the coalition added a record number of 65 stakeholders, including three local transit districts, twoutility districts, three cities, two counties, five alternative fuel original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and numerous other local businesses.
