Clackamas County Transportation Public Advisory Committee to finalize recommendations for planning commission on Tuesday, Aug. 20

The public is welcome to attend and comment at the next and final meeting of Clackamas County's Transportation System Plan (TSP) Public Advisory Committee (PAC). The meeting will be held from 6-9 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 20, in room 115, Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Rd., Oregon City.

The PAC, made up of residents from throughout Clackamas County, is advising the county on transportation system improvements needed in unincorporated areas of the county over the next 20 years. The meeting Aug. 20 will be the PAC's 12th meeting after nearly two years of reviewing and recommending updates to the county's transportation projects, programs and policies.

The PAC has worked with staff and the public over the last two years to review and update the County's transportation policies, and identify, prioritize and evaluate transportation projects and programs needed through the year 2035.

PAC recommendations will be presented to the county planning commission for review on Sept. 23 and Oct. 14, and for public hearings on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4. The planning commission will forward the proposed Transportation System Plan, with their recommendations, to the Board of County Commissioners for study, public hearing and action by the end of December.

More information about the project, including background documents and the schedule of upcoming meetings, is available at www.clackamascountytsp.com.
