From Clackamas County
Clackamas County residents invited to apply to serve on county walking/biking advisory task force
Clackamas County will update its master plans for walking and bicycling facilities in unincorporated areas of the county over the next 18 months. Fourteen community volunteers are being sought to serve on an advisory committee with technical experts to advise and help oversee the project.
The Walk Bike Advisory Committee (WBAC) will help guide plan development by advising the county at key milestones. Committee members will be expected to meet four times during the project to review and provide feedback on project materials.
County residents with an interest in pedestrian and bicycle travel who would like to be considered to serve on this committee are asked to complete an application form and submit it no later than Monday, August 15, 2022. Application forms are available online at https://www.clackamas.us/engineering/bikewalk.
The Walk Bike Clackamas County project will take into consideration issues related to health, equity and climate change to guide plan development. Key outcomes are expected to include:
• Policy priorities related to biking and walking;
• A prioritized list of construction projects to make biking and walking safer and more accessible throughout unincorporated Clackamas County;
• A list of program investments to support active transportation by:
a. increasing access to pedestrian and bicycle facilities and
b. encouraging more people to walk and bike;
• Performance measures to track progress toward plan implementation.
