MAP-IT is a 15-person, community-driven task force established in 2012 to help implement the projects and programs outlined by the MAP 1 and MAP 2 committees. (Statement of Purpose) Membership is made up of representatives from area community planning organizations (CPOs) and businesses.
MAP-IT was recognized by the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners in 2013 (Letter of Recognition) and submits quarterly reports to the Board. The county has reaffirmed its agreement with MAP-IT each subsequent year. In March 2018, the Board continued its recognition for MAP-IT indefinitely, and approved the following two documents prepared for and approved by the MAP-IT member organizations:
McLoughlin Area Plan Phase I (MAP 1) -- McLoughlin Area Plan Vision Framework
McLoughlin Area Plan Phase II (MAP 2) -- MAP Phase II Report

Park Avenue Development and Design Standards Project – In late 2017, MAP-IT and the county received a $180,000 Metro 2040 Planning & Development Grant to develop and implement an inclusive and extensive public outreach process to create development and design standards for the commercial area around the light-rail station at the corner of Park Avenue and McLoughlin Boulevard. The standards are intended to implement the community values and guiding principles of the McLoughlin Area Plan, developed and approved by the community from 2008-12, and the Five Components of the McLoughlin Area Plan, approved by the Board of County Commissioners in 2015. The project will also include an assessment of neighborhood livability and economic diversity in the residential areas surrounding the Park Avenue station.
