Clackamas County’s Park Ave Community Project invites comments on possible options for future community development

Main Content

The Park Ave area community is working with Clackamas County to create a vibrant, inclusive, affordable neighborhood for the future, and community members, business people and other stakeholders are invited to weigh in on what they would like that future to be.

The intent of the project, led by the Park Avenue Community Advisory Committee (PACAC) with county staff and consultants, is to work with the residential and business community to create updated land use design and development standards for the area of unincorporated Clackamas County within ½ mile of the light rail station at the corner of Park Ave and McLoughlin Blvd. Standards to support economic development in current commercial areas, and protect and preserve surrounding residential areas will be developed by the project team and recommended for further action to the Board of County Commissioners.

The public, businesses and others interested in the unincorporated area within ½ mile of the Park Ave light rail station are invited to learn more about and discuss options for the future of the area by participating in one or more of the following events:

  • Tuesday, June 30 – Park Ave Framework Alternatives Workshop, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; register in advance for this Zoom webinar 
  • June 30-July 31 – Park Ave Framework Alternatives Online Survey
  • Various times in July – Park Ave Framework Alternatives Discussion Groups led by PACAC members in safe outdoor spaces or on Zoom

“The involvement and input of people who live, work and/or own property in the project area is vital to the success of the project,” says PACAC Chairperson Valerie Chapman, an area resident.
