Roundtable Exchange

Current Status

The Hillsboro Airport Roundtable Exchange (HARE), formerly the Hillsboro Airport Issues Roundtable, is the community's public forum for discussion of news, information, and concerns related to Hillsboro Airport. The Roundtable advises the Port on numerous airport projects and plans. Meetings focus on all issues surrounding the airport, including:

  • Airport compatibility and noise
  • Wildlife and environmental management
  • Airport operations and projects

Members of the roundtable include citizens from Hillsboro and Washington County, elected officials from local, county, regional, and state jurisdictions, airport tenants, partners, and adjacent businesses, and a representative from the Federal Aviation Administration. HARE meets the first Wednesday of February, May, August, and November.


Each HARE meeting includes time to chat with representatives about airport issues. For information about joining the committee, please contact Jayson Shanafelt, Outreach and Tour Program Manager, at 503.415.6853.
