Board responsibilities

Making decisions that can shape the course of life in Clark County for years to come is not an easy process. That’s why, before they decide an issue, Clark County’s commissioners get extensive input from community members through citizen advisory groups, town hall meetings, one-on-one conversations, and through other means.

Elected to four-year terms by the citizens of Clark County, the three commissioners provide legislative authority for Clark County. Together, they form the Board of Clark County Commissioners and are responsible for:

  • Adopting the biennial budget
  • Developing and implementing planning and zoning policies
  • Making citizen appointments to advisory committees and boards
  • Adopting all county ordinances

By state law, some land-use decisions, such as some hearings examiners findings, may be appealed to the Board of Clark County Commissioners.


Regular public hearings are held on Tuesdays beginning at 10 a.m. with the exception of the first Tuesday of the month when the hearing will begin at 6 p.m. Special hearings are scheduled as needed. Hearings are held in the Public Service Center, sixth-floor hearing room, 1300 Franklin St., Vancouver. Map

Advisory boards

More than three dozen citizen advisory boards provide input to the commissioners in a variety of areas. Openings on these boards are posted in the newspaper as they occur.
