Passmore Road testimony
Mulino people showed up in force last week to give testimony at the Clackamas County Planning Commission during an Oct. 28 public hearing on the county's newly proposed Transportation System Plan (TSP).
Since so many citizens were on hand to speak out on the plan concerning the intersection at Highway 213 and Passmore Road in Mulino, the commission held that discussion for last.
The proposed project is listed as Tier One on the commissions TSP list.
At the conclusion of the Passmore Road discussion, the commission did not have time left to make a decision or to make a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC).
The nine-member body scheduled to meet again Monday, Nov. 4, to discuss and reach consensus on a recommendation to forward to the BCC.
The planning commission had reviewed the TSP at two work sessions in September and October, which were open to the public. Open houses on the TSP were also held Oct. 14 and 28 to give the public an additional opportunity to learn about the proposed policies and projects that will guide transportation in unincorporated Clackamas County for the next 20 years.
Once adopted, the TSP will become part of the countys Comprehensive Plan, and Zoning and Development Ordinance. The draft text can be seen at http://www.clackamas.us/planning/zdoproposed.html. More information is available on the project website at www.clackamascountytsp.com.
The BCC will also hold public hearings on the TSP before taking final action by the end of December. Two public hearings, to be held in the fourth floor board room in the Public Services Building, 2051 Kaen Road, Oregon City, are scheduled for:
9:30 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 4
6 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 11
