Clackamas County Transportation System Plan
Opportunities to Participate in the Final Review of Transportation Priorities
Citizen members of a Public Advisory Committee (PAC) have been working with County staff and technical consultants for over a year to identify more than 500 projects for roads, bridges, sidewalks and bikeways that will be needed by 2035 in unincorporated Clackamas County. Since funds will only be available for a small fraction of these projects, the team has been working hard to set priorities. Let us know if we got it right! Visit the Virtual Workshop between May 15 and June 15 to review the list and let us know if you think any project priorities should be changed. You can view projects just in your area of the County or throughout the County. Your comments will help the PAC make its final recommendations for project lists to send to the Planning Commission for consideration this fall.
As part of our extensive public outreach during this process, County staff is visiting community groups throughout the County to share information and receive comments about the Transportation System Plan update process, proposed projects and project priorities. For more information on opportunities to attend in your area, visit the our Community Outreach page. You can also view the recent presentation given to the Board of County Commissioners here.

What: Clackamas County is updating its Transportation System Plan (TSP) for unincorporated areas in the County. The two-year process covers all forms of transportation, including roads, transit, walking, bicyling, rail and air. It is tailored to Clackamas County's diverse geography and planned land uses. The result will be a plan to keep people and products moving safety and smoothly in and through Clackamas County for decades to come.
Why: All Oregon cities and counties are required to have a TSP and update it every 10 years. Our County is changing economically and in population. Through this effort, and with your help, we will identify the best ways to build upon our existing system and make smart future investments that increase choice for getting around.
When: The planning process is going to take about two years - from fall 2011 through fall 2013. See a copy of the current schedule here.
How: In addition to technical work (data gathering, projections, traffic modeling), the updating process includes extensive public involvement throughout the County. This outreach includes a series of regional meetings, workshops and presentations to community and business groups. In addition there will be surveys, newsletters, website, and a public advisory committee.
