Stafford Hamlet in PDX

Stafford Hamlet in Oregon’s Portland Area:

If you’re researching Hamlet the idea of a country subdivision is probably not what you’re thinking. Hamlets in Oregon are similar to villages and these are subnational entities that manage themselves as a local government. Look at West Linn as the comanding force in regards to Stafford, Oregon. This is done so the area can run things for themselves as a smaller unit to make decisions easier and quicker for people to run the land. This  community is a model of local government and a village or hamlet is referred to as a community planning organization (CPOs). The purpose of CPO’s is to involve the communities citizens in land use planning in the unincorporated county. An unincorporated area is a region of land administered as part of a bigger administrative division and not governed by its own local municipal corporation. There are four examples of this in Oregon and the hamlets are are known as MulinoBeavercreekMolalla Prairie and Stafford.

Stafford is classified as a hamlet with about 2,200 residents when last counted. This area is approximately 3,900 acres and west of West Linn, South of Lake Oswego and east of Tualatin. A renowned Portland, Oregon pioneer by the name of George A. Steel named Stafford after Stafford, Ohio which was his hometown. In 1892 the Stafford School opened in this community and the following year the Eastside Electric Railway rolled into the area. Urban growth contributed to the area being added to Portland’s boundary in 1995 however in 2006 Stafford became a hamlet as residents voted to do so after fighting with Oregon’s Court of Appeals to not include 830 acres as part of Portland.
