Clackamas County Board of Commission Chair Charlotte Lehan was named to the Oregon Travel Information Council (OTIC) by Gov. John Kitzhaber, his office reported.
Oregon Travel Experience (OTE) recently welcomed five new members to its governing board, the OTIC. Council members are selected for their knowledge of, experience with, and interest in economic development, travel within Oregon, recreational opportunities across the state, and Oregon history or natural history.
OTE is responsible for a variety of transportation information services to the public, and was granted management of the Government Camp and Tillamook rest areas following passage of Senate Bill 1591 this February. The bill was aggressively supported by Clackamas County Commissioners. A video presentation about this effort can be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6Cn1fLece0
Lehan was elected to the BCC in 2008. She was appointed chair of the commission in March 2011. She served as the representative of the Small Cities of Clackamas County at the Metro Policy Advisory Committee (MPAC) and the Urban/Rural Reserves Steering Committee. She has been part of the Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation delegation to Washington, D.C., for the last five years.
