The Clackamas County Community Road Fund Advisory Committee will meet from 6–9 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 17 and Thursday, Oct. 24. Both meetings will be on the first floor of the Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City

The agenda and background materials for each meeting are posted online before the meeting at www.clackamas.us/transportation/crf. The public is welcome to attend committee meetings and express their views during the public comment portion of the agenda.

The 15-member committee, made up of residents from throughout the county, is charged with reviewing proposed transportation construction projects to relieve congestion and recommending project priorities to the Board of Commissioners. Projects will be funded through revenue from the new countywide vehicle registration fee that is going into the new Community Road Fund. The fee will go into effect in January 2020.

The primary focus of the October meetings will be to work on prioritizing congestion relief projects to be funded through the Community Road Fund, taking into account costs, needs, other funding sources, overlap with safety and paving projects, and other factors. Transportation construction projects to be paid for through the Community Road Fund will be recommended to the Board of County Commissioners this fall.

County revenue from the $30-per-year countywide vehicle registration fee approved by the Board of Commissioners in February 2019 will be used for projects on county roads to relieve congestion, improve safety and maintain local roads.

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.
