The Clackamas County Community Road Fund Advisory Committee will hold its second meeting from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 22, in the Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City. The public is welcome to attend.
The committee, made up of 15 residents from throughout the county, is charged with reviewing proposed transportation construction projects that would relieve congestion, and recommending priorities to the Board of Commissioners. Projects will be funded with revenue from the new countywide vehicle registration fee, which will go into effect in January 2020.
Revenue from the $30-per-year countywide vehicle registration fee, which was approved by the Board of Commissioners in February 2019, will go into the new Community Road Fund for projects to relieve congestion, improve safety and maintain local roads. The advisory committee will focus on identifying top congestion relief projects to be funded first with the new revenue.
Recommendations will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners in November. The Board will make the final decision about what projects will move forward first.
