Clackamas County and the Cities of Happy Valley, Gresham, and Damascus are deep into plans to plan and design a traffic corridor in the area between SE 172nd and 190th to accommodate the needs of the residents of all of the new construction that is rapidly changing the boundaries of the Portland metro area. Clackamas County is hosting a public workshop tomorrow eventing from 6pm to 9pm at Scouters Mountain Elementary School at 10811 S.E. 172nd Ave. in Happy Valley. Area residents will have the opportunity to chime in on the future of road development in the Happy Valley/Gresham/Damascus Area.
The proposed corridor lies between 172nd Avenue north of Sunnyside and 190th Drive in the Gresham area.We’re no strangers to new construction in Happy Valley, and we’ve seen first hand the need for more north/south transportation options in Clackamas County. As part of Portland’s Urban Growth Boundary development, the proposed corridor is going through many public and governmental review processes in order to ensure the protection of natural land, growing communities, and intelligent design of our cities. Currently, the consulting team and project staff are currently developing the possible roadway designs based on public feedback and evaluating them according to the project goals and objectives – which must take into account the unique geographical layout of Clackamas County and the patterns of residential real estate construction in Happy Valley, Damascus, and Gresham.
The 172nd/190th Corridor Plan Project will be engaging public opinion through approximately November of 2011, and there are plenty of ways to keep up to date on the project and get involved, including the project website http://www.172nd.com, newsletters, public workshops and open houses, and Public Advisory Committee meetings.
