We’ve heard from people in the area that it is important to make sure the Clackamas Regional Center continues to grow as a vibrant economic center that is easy to get around by all modes of travel—driving, biking, walking, or taking transit.
The Connections Project is studying land use and transportation planning tools to help support this vision.
Think about the future of the Clackamas Regional Center twenty years from now: what you would like to see in terms of how people get around and the types of businesses and services available.
With new measures in place, new development would be required to support or improve multi-modal travel in the area to make it safer and easier to bike, drive, walk and take transit. For example, a new developer might be required to fund or install a new crosswalk, signaled intersection, improved sidewalks or bike lanes.

Current land use and transportation plans include a number of projects (pdf, 2.6MB) to address some of these issues. However, we know that there’s still more work to do to improve the area for travel by all modes.
Currently, the Clackamas Regional Center has a lot of infrastructure for motorists: road design and construction have been focused primarily on moving cars, trucks and drivers. The project will consider adopting a boundary to designate where to concentrate future improvements for all types of travel. A potential effect of this boundary could be economic development and more balanced travel options for the area.
