Clackamas County Service District No.1 (CCSD #1) and the City of Milwaukie have reached an agreement allowing the city to utilize a portion of property owned by CCSD #1. The city will compensate the district $63,200 paid over three years.
“This agreement provides a balance between the city’s plans to improve access, amenities, and recreational opportunities along their riverfront and the district’s responsibility to provide safe, reliable, and cost-effective services to ratepayers and the community,” said Clackamas County Commissioner Paul Savas.
“The public agencies - the City, the County, the Parks District, WES and its RiverHealth Advisory Board, the Army Corps of Engineers - are all working together to provide the best public facilities we possibly can,” Mayor Jeremy Ferguson said. “The construction of Phase II of Milwaukie Riverfront Park, which can now move forward as result of this agreement, and the related improvements at the Kellogg Wastewater Treatment Plant, are products of this collaboration.”
CCSD #1 owns and operates the Kellogg Creek Water Pollution Control Plant located along the city’s waterfront. The easement will allow the city to move forward with plans identified in the Milwaukie Riverfront Park Plan. Phase II of the plan, scheduled to begin this summer, includes construction of a new boat launch and boarding float, a riverside pathway and plantings, a small restroom, parking areas north and south of Kellogg Creek and vehicle access improvements along McLoughlin Blvd.
