The Linn Avenue, Leland Road, and Meyers Road Corridor Plan 2015 is now available on line. 

 

BACKGROUND

The 2013 Oregon City Transportation System Plan (TSP) was adopted and went into effect on August 16, 2013.  The Plan identified and prioritized needed transportation improvements.  Several projects located along the Meyers Road-Leland Road-Linn Avenue corridor were identified in the Plan.

 

Included in the Plan are two short-term and one medium-term project along with several long-term projects.  Although the "long term" projects are identified as "Not Likely to be Funded", it is important that a comprehensive corridor plan be prepared in order to guide the development, physical infrastructure improvements, street design, storm water management and planning efforts for the corridor.

 

Preparation of a corridor plan will ensure that future development along the corridor will develop with appropriate street designs and be built in accordance with the TSP.  It will also ensure that roadway improvements to the portions of the corridor that are already built out are constructed so as to accommodate identified improvements.  Wallis Engineering, PLLC was selected to prepare the corridor plan.

 

A final draft of the corridor plan is now available online.  This document is still being reviewed and once finalized, the next steps towards adoption of the plan include a land use application hearing before the Planning Commission and then the City Commission, all expected to occur this summer.
