Clackamas County residents and businesses encouraged to participate in development of future transportation projects in September

The nearly two-year Clackamas County Transportation System Plan (TSP) Update Process is at its mid-point. It’s time for the community to weigh in on which transportation projects should be part of the County’s 20 year-plan, which projects need to be revised and which projects should not be included.


The public is encouraged to share comments and ideas at both a “live” and an online open house planned for September:
• Community Open House:  Tuesday, Sept. 11, 5-7 p.m.; Development Services Bldg. 1st floor, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City
• Virtual Open House:  Sept. 9 – Oct. 1 at www.clackamascountytsp.com


The list of potential future projects for unincorporated Clackamas County comes from the County’s current Transportation System Plan, suggestions from the public and additional projects suggested to meet specific future transportation needs.


Project evaluation is guided by the TSP Vision, Goals and Objectives, developed by a community Public Advisory Committee and approved by the Board of County Commissioners earlier this year.


In the two-year TSP update process, the County is reviewing plans and policies for various forms of transportation – roads, transit, walking, bicycling, rail, air, freight, waterways and pipelines – in unincorporated Clackamas County. When complete in 2013, the TSP will specify priority transportation projects for the next 20 years and address how those projects, and maintenance of the current system, can be funded.


More information about the project, upcoming meetings and opportunities for input are available at www.clackamascountytsp.com.

For more information, contact Transportation Planning Supervisor Karen Buehrig at karenb@co.clackamas.or.us or 503.742.5915.
