Clackamas County advisory committee on active transportation meets Tuesday, Dec. 10; public welcome to attend

Clackamas County's Active Transportation Plan (ATC) Public Advisory Committee (PAC) will meet from 6:30-8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 10, in room 119 of the Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Rd., Oregon City.  The public is welcome to attend.

The county's ATP project - focused on walking, bicycling and use of transit - is a 12-month effort to identify and prioritize the primary network of active transportation corridors or routes that connect the communities in Clackamas County, both urban and rural. 

The PAC is made up of members of the county's Pedestrian/Bicycle Advisory Committee and other interested residents from throughout Clackamas County.  They focus on helping create an active transportation plan that:
• Consists of multi-use paths, bikeways and walkways to encourage people to bicycle or walk for recreation and transportation;
• Provides connections to parks, town centers, businesses and other significant destinations in the County;
• Is a draw for tourists and an opportunity to promote the County as a premier cycling destination in Oregon, and
• Provides accessible, safe active transportation opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and income levels.
