MEDIATION SERVICES

There will be conflict from time to time, but there is support for your team and neighborhood association members.

Community Solutions of Central Oregon provides a positive alternative to the court system in order to resolve conflict. Mediators and trained volunteers help address problems without lawyers, judges and expensive court fees. Mediation is not a court hearing. There are no witnesses needed, and no one is determined guilty or innocent.

Mediation is a method of helping people jointly solve their problems and settle conflict in a way that is fair to both parties. Some disputes can escalate into serious problems that can cause injury or criminal complaints if not resolved in a constructive manner. Impartial mediators can help settle these disputes between neighbors.

Community Solutions of Central Oregon also works to mediate problems involving business organizations, neighborhood associations, non-profit agencies, school districts and City departments. In addition, trained volunteers are available to facilitate meetings for neighborhood associations and other community groups.

Mediation is a voluntary process. It is offered at no cost to the participants if the City has authorized a referral. The only condition is that once the situation has been settled in a manner that is acceptable to all parties, everyone must agree to abide by the proposed agreement. If you would like to consider using mediation services, contact the City's Communications Department for a referral.
