Traffic Safety Commission
Clackamas County is recruiting for several positions to serve on the Traffic Safety Commission (TSC). The TSC is seeking residents living in Clackamas County to serve and add their valuable perspective to the discussions. Any interested Clackamas County resident is encouraged to apply.
The primary duty of the 12-member commission is to establish and monitor programs to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities throughout the county.
The commission currently has four regular seats open.
The commission, also, has three seats that are specifically held for young adults, aged 15-22. For students who are looking for great volunteer experiences, this work can count toward volunteer hours tied to graduation requirements. This is a great way to build your resume for college or career.
The Clackamas County TSC is one of the most active in the state, and plays an important role in formulating the county's transportation safety program, including:
- Reviewing traffic safety, education and outreach, and providing guidance to the County Traffic Safety staff.
- Developing and implementing the county’s Transportation Safety Action Plan.
- Working on safety education, fielding public concerns, identifying safety projects, conducting community outreach on traffic safety and working with county traffic engineers to implement traffic safety measures on county roadways.
The TSC meets at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every other month at the county's Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City. Each meeting is also open to members who wish to join by Zoom.
