The Steering Committee for the Sunrise Corridor Community Visioning project will hold its first meeting from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 31 in the second floor media center in Adrienne C. Nelson High School, 14897 SE Parklane Dr., Happy Valley.
The in-person meeting is open to the public. People may also attend virtually.
The project, led by Clackamas County in partnership with the City of Happy Valley, the Oregon Department of Transportation and Metro, is intended to build meaningful partnerships with people who live, work and visit the area to develop an equitable, community-supported vision for the future.
The Sunrise Corridor Community is a five-square mile area in the valley between the Clackamas River on the south, forested low hills to the north, I-205 to the west and 172nd Avenue to the east.
The project area is home to 8,500 residents and 800 businesses with more than 14,000 employees. It is one of the busiest freight distribution centers in the region and state, and is bisected by Oregon Highway 212.
The Steering Committee of community and business members, and representatives from the partner agency, will explore the strengths and opportunities in the Sunrise Corridor Community and help develop recommendations for its long-term success.
More information about the project and the Steering Committee meeting is available on the project website.
