Ellen Rogalin, Clackamas County Department of Transportation & Development, 503-742-4274

The new Clackamas County HB 2017 Transit Advisory Committee (CC HB2017 TAC) will hold its first two meetings on July 10 and July 24, 2018.  Both meetings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Clackamas County Development Services Building Auditorium, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City.

The public is welcome to attend the meetings to listen, to comment or ask questions.

The CC HB2017 TAC was formed in response to the Oregon State Legislature’s passage of House Bill 2017, which established the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund, a new, dedicated source of funds to expand public transportation around Oregon.

The Advisory Committee, made up of representatives from public transit agencies and diverse groups within Clackamas County, is responsible for:

  • Reviewing proposed projects to be funded by the STIF funds in areas of Clackamas County outside of the TriMet district and
  • Recommending projects that should be incorporated into the broader plan that will be submitted by TriMet (the qualified entity for the area, as specified in the law) to the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) for approval. 

There will be time for public comment at both meetings. 

  • The focus at the July 10 meeting will be on an overview of the STIF program and plans from local transit service providers. 
  • On July 24, the committee will review and discuss specific proposed projects, and vote on a recommendation for which projects to include in the STIF Plan to be submitted to the OTC by TriMet.
