Light Rail Hearing

Dear Community Partner,
On July 14th and July 15th Milwaukie City Council will hold public hearings to gather input before passing along its recommended light rail alignment to the rest of the region.

The hearings will be held in City Hall’s Council Chambers and will begin at 7 p.m.

City Council will base its recommendation on the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) forwarded by the project’s steering committee, which is comprised of elected officials from Portland City Council, Milwaukie City Council, Oregon City Commission, Multnomah County Commission, Clackamas County Commission, executives from TriMet and the Oregon Department of Transportation, and the Citizen Advisory Committee chair.

The LPA enters Milwaukie’s North Industrial Area next to the Tillamook Branch railroad, continues next to those tracks through Downtown near the Portland Waldorf School and behind Milwaukie Lumber, crosses Lake Road and Kellogg Lake and then extends south to Park Avenue along McLoughlin Boulevard into Oak Grove.

The LPA features the single station at Lake Road, which was recommended by City Council on June 3rd.

City staff hopes that you will share your thoughts with your City Council and help form its recommendation.
