The Clackamas County Community Road Fund Advisory Committee will hold its third meeting from 6 – 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 12, in Room 118 of the Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City. The public is welcome to attend.
The primary focus on the Sept. 12 meeting will be a discussion of the criteria to be used by the committee to evaluate possible construction projects to recommend to the Board of County Commissioners this fall.
The 15-member committee made up of residents from throughout the county is charged with reviewing proposed transportation construction projects that would relieve congestion, and recommending priorities to the Board of Commissioners. Projects will be funded with revenue from the new countywide vehicle registration fee, which will go into effect in January 2020.
Revenue from the $30-per-year countywide vehicle registration fee approved by the Board of Commissioners in February 2019 will go into the new Community Road Fund for projects to relieve congestion, improve safety and maintain local roads. The advisory committee will focus on identifying the top congestion relief projects to be funded first with the new revenue.
Recommendations will be presented to the Board of Commissioners in November. The Board will make the final decision about what projects will move forward first.
