The public is invited to comment on bike and pedestrian projects proposed for regional funding at the Nov. 3 meeting of the Clackamas County Coordinating Committee (C4).
C4 is a group of elected officials from cities in Clackamas County, as well as representatives of special service districts and rural areas. The group meets monthly to discuss issues of mutual interest.
C4's focus on Thursday, Nov. 3, will be the six projects in Clackamas County that are proposed for consideration for the 2019 to 2021 Regional Flexible Funds Allocation program. The meeting is scheduled from 6:45 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the county's Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road in Oregon City.
The public is welcome to attend to listen to presentations about the projects and comment. C4 will take the public input into consideration when it advises Metro on local priorities for bike and pedestrian projects.
The six projects in the county are:
- Monroe Street Walking and Biking Improvements (Clackamas County)
- Monroe Street Neighborhood Greenway (Milwaukie)
- Molalla Avenue Walking and Biking Improvements (Oregon City)
- Highway 43 Walking and Biking Improvements (West Linn)
- Interstate 205 Walking and Biking Trail (West Linn),
- Interstate 5 Walking and Biking Bridge (Wilsonville),
The public is also welcome to submit comments by Nov. 7 to Metro about any Clackamas County projects or other projects from throughout the Portland Metropolitan area. Comments may be shared through an interactive comment map at www.oregonmetro.gov/rffa, or:
- by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- by letters to 600 NE Grand Ave., Portland, OR, 97232
- by phone at 503-797-1750 or TDD 503-797-1804
- at a public hearing at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 at Metro Regional Center, 600 NE Grand Ave., Portland.
Regional Flexible Funds are federal funds allocated for local transportation needs. They are considered to be "flexible" because Metro Council and the regional Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation can prioritize how the money is spent. A final decision is scheduled to be made at the regional level in early 2017.
