You are invited to help plan the future of transportation in unincorporated Clackamas County by attending one of three public workshops next week. The workshops are a key part of the County’s Transportation System Plan (TSP) update process. Scroll down to see a video about the project.


Each workshop will include the same general content, with a focus on the needs and issues of that region of the County. People are encouraged to attend the workshop in their region.

If you would like to participate but can’t attend a workshop, an online workshop is available at http://www.clackamascountytsp.com/  through February 5.

A Public Advisory Committee (PAC) of residents from throughout Clackamas County and a Technical Advisory Committee are integral parts of the review process. The next PAC meeting, which the public is welcome to attend, will be held from 6-9 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 7, in Room 115 of the County’s Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Rd., Oregon City.

It's Snowing! How will I get to work...school....coffee shop...?

Q: In the event of a winter storm, which streets will city crews plow?

A: The City’s streets crew will plow the City’s primary arterial and collector streets in an effort to keep them safe and passable. Here is a link to the route: http://www.ci.milwaukie.or.us/sites/default/files/fileattachments/plowsand.pdf

Q: Why those streets?
A: The goal is to help our residents get to and from their places of business and to keep the City’s primary roads open to emergency response equipment.

Q: What are residents responsible for when it comes to snow removal?
A: To aid the effort the City asks that vehicles along the route be parked off of the right of way to avoid possible damage from plowing the snow to the edge of the roadway. Property owners are responsible for removing any snow that might pile up in front of driveway approaches and on sidewalks from the plowing.


Due to limits of City resources and staffing levels, snow plowing will be limited to this route.
