Public invited to set priorities for Clackamas Regional Center improvements

The Clackamas Regional Center Working Group, a committee of community and business representatives established by Clackamas County, is asking for public input on potential improvements for the Clackamas Regional Center area.

The public was invited to express their views in person at an open house near the escalator to the food court on the lower level of Clackamas Town Center on Wednesday. The public can still comment online through Oct. 20. The online survey is available at clackamas.us/transportation/crcworkinggroup.html.

The Clackamas Regional Center is a commercial, industrial and residential area in north Clackamas County, roughly bisected by I-205 with Johnson Creek Boulevard to the north, Lawnfield Road to the south and Clackamas Town Center roughly in the middle. A significant portion of the area is in the Clackamas Town Center Urban Renewal District.

The CRC has grown dramatically since the urban renewal plan was adopted in 1980. Based on this plan, county urban renewal funds have been leveraged to help provide new, expanded and safer roadways; increase multi-modal travel options; support commercial and retail growth; enhance public safety and medical facilities and offer multiple housing options.

With limited funds remaining, and a number of projects in the urban renewal plan that have not yet been completed, the working group is considering the following types of projects and programs:

  • New or improved streets and intersections
  • Improved multi-modal travel (walking, bicycling, transit)
  • Community use (e.g., plazas and parks)
  • Business development and redevelopment
