Dear SICA Members & Neighbors:
The Sauvie Island Community Association (SICA) is seeking interested members wishing to volunteer their time as a Board member and contribute to the livability and vitality of our island home.
SICA is recognized by the County as the neighborhood association representing the broad interests and opinions of our community.
Time commitments are minimal and can accommodate busy lives; however regular attendance at meetings is required.
Throughout the year SICA hosts three community events: the Annual Spring meeting, providing volunteers for the 4th of July Flat Half Flat, and hosting the Annual Island picnic in August.
The Association also has standing committees that deal a variety of topics.

Sauvie Island, originally Wapato Island, is approximately 10 miles north of Portland, Oregon. It is the largest island in the Columbia River and one of the largest islands in the U.S. Located at the junction of the Columbia River to the east, Willamette River to the south and Multnomah Channel to the west, the island’s northern half is a wildlife refuge and the southern half is predominantly rural farmland with small residential enclaves. Access to the island is by the Sauvie Island Bridge on Highway 30.
