Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and the goals of Clackamas County. 

Individuals interested in this opportunity can apply online or via a paper form that can be obtained from the Public & Government Affairs Department by calling 503-655-8751 or in person at the Public Services Building at 2051 Kaen Road in Oregon City.    

New ABC openings from the past week include:

Community Road Fund Advisory Committee

Clackamas County residents, property owners and business people are invited to apply to fill one of five, three-year positions on the county’s Community Road Fund Advisory Committee (CRFAC).  The 15-member committee, supported by the Department of Transportation and Development, serves in an advisory capacity to the department and to the Board of County Commissioners.

The CRFAC was established in 2019 to prioritize congestion relief projects needed in unincorporated Clackamas County to be funded through the Community Road Fund -- the revenue from the countywide vehicle registration fee that became effective in January 2020.

The county is looking for applicants from throughout unincorporated Clackamas County, especially in the west and southwest, in both rural and urban areas, to apply to fill five positions that would begin July 1, 2022 and continue through June 30, 2025.  Applicants with a background in the business community are also encourage to apply.

The committee meets two to three times a year, as determined by committee members, to:

  • Review the criteria used to identify priority transportation construction projects and the status of projects approved for construction
  • Update project lists over time as road construction projects are completed and as there are changes in project schedules
  • Report the status of the Community Road Fund and projects financed by the Fund to the Board of County Commissioners

In its first year the Committee developed and applied criteria to high priority congestion-relief projects to recommend to the Board of County Commissioners which ones should be funded first with the new vehicle registration fee revenue. 

The final deadline for applications is July 7, 2022.  For more information, contact Ellen Rogalin at ellenrog@clackamas.us.
