Light Rail in Milwaukie, Two Meetings

Light Rail Stations in Downtown Milwaukie

With Milwaukie staff beginning to formulate its recommendation for downtown station locations, staff is scheduling another meeting for Monday, April 28th, in the Milwaukie High School Commons at 6 p.m. to get a better sense of which locations residents prefer.

More than 75 residents attended a meeting at the High School in March and staff gathered a lot of good input, but staff is hoping to hear more from the community about preferences between the potential stations located where the alignment intersects Harrison Street, Monroe Street, Washington Street and Lake Road. Staff is also interested in hearing more on the question of “one downtown station or two.”

This will be the last public meeting residents will have the opportunity to talk with staff about station locations before it presents a recommendation to City Council. New materials are being prepared for the April 28th meeting to help people visualize how these stations would sit along the alignment near the locations noted above. The meeting will have a “listening post” format where staff will try to answer simple questions, but will mostly be taking notes and listening. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and will last long enough to provide everyone an opportunity to speak.
