Clackamas County seeks volunteers to serve on Traffic Safety Commission

Clackamas County is recruiting applicants to serve for four-year terms on the Traffic Safety Commission (TSC). Representation is needed from the Clackamas/Happy Valley/Damascus area; however, anyone interested is encouraged to apply.

The primary duty of the 10-member commission is to establish programs to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities throughout the County.  

The Clackamas County TSC is one of the most active in the state, and plays an important role in formulating the County's transportation safety program, including:  

  • Reviewing traffic safety, education and outreach, and providing guidance to the County Traffic Engineer;  
  • Developing and implementing an annual work program, and  
  • Working on projects such as safety education, fielding citizens concerns, identifying safety projects, citizen outreach on traffic safety and working with County traffic engineers to implement traffic safety measures on County roadways.

The TSC meets in the evening on the first Wednesday of each month at the County's Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City.
 
Interested individuals are asked to complete and submit an application form by August 31.  Application forms are available online at www.clackamas.us/citizenin/abc.html or from Pam Girtman, Public & Government Affairs, at 503-742-4353, pamelagir@co.clackamas.or.us or on the 4th floor of the Public Services Building, 2051 Kaen Road, Oregon City.
