Public invited to help set priorities for transportation, community and economic development improvements for Clackamas Regional Center

mapThe Clackamas Regional Center Working Group, a committee of community and business representatives established by Clackamas County, is asking for public input on potential improvements for the Clackamas Regional Center area.

The public is invited to express their views:

  • In person, at an open house near the escalator to the food court on the lower level of Clackamas Town Center, Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 3-6 p.m.
  • Online, through a survey available at www.clackamas.us/transportation/crcworkinggroup.html through Saturday, Oct. 20

The Clackamas Regional Center (CRC), shown on the map, is a commercial / industrial / residential area in north Clackamas County, roughly bisected by I-205, with Johnson Creek Boulevard to the north, Lawnfield Road to the south and Clackamas Town Center roughly in the middle.  A significant portion of the area is in the Clackamas Town Center Urban Renewal District.

The CRC has grown dramatically since the urban renewal plan was adopted in 1980. Based on this plan, county urban renewal funds have been leveraged to help provide new, expanded and safer roadways; increase multi-modal travel options; support commercial and retail growth; enhance public safety and medical facilities and offer multiple housing options.  

With limited funds remaining, and a number of projects remaining in the urban renewal plan, the working group is considering the following types of projects and programs:

  • New or improved streets and intersections
  • Improved multi-modal travel (walking, bicycling, transit)
  • Community use (e.g., plazas and parks)
  • Business development and redevelopment
