Multnomah County is recruiting volunteers to serve on a Community Advisory Committee that will provide important input during planning for safety improvements on NW Cornelius Pass Road. The Oregon Legislature has allocated funding for safety improvements to be made to Multnomah County’s section of this rural road, which is an important regional route connecting Multnomah and Washington counties.
Committee members will provide input on safety issues and improvements that are being considered. Safety improvements will be selected in the next year, with design work in 2014 – 2015 and construction in 2015 – 2016. Approximately 6 - 8 committee members will be asked to serve during the initial alternatives analysis phase, at a minimum.
Multnomah County is seeking volunteers to represent the diversity of Cornelius Pass Road users, including:
- Residents living north of Skyline Boulevard area
- Residents living in or south of Skyline Boulevard area
- Skyline Ridge Neighbors
- Commuters (not living in the area)
- Commercial trucking firms
- Local businesses
The ideal committee volunteer is someone:
- Interested in improving safety on Cornelius Pass Road
- Available to attend evening meetings (estimated 3 – 5 times in next year beginning November 2013)
- Able to represent the interests of an organization or interest group
- With volunteer committee experience
No professional design experience is required.
