The community advisory committee was charged with providing:

  • ongoing input on issues that should be addressed in the DEIS
  • recommendations on potential stop or station locations and other design refinements
  • recommendations on the project's Locally Preferred Alternative including transit mode and route after the DEIS is complete
  • input on the range of impacts identified in the DEIS and potential types of mitigation that the community could support as the project proceeds to the Final Environmental Impact Study and Preliminary Engineering.

Membership

The committee membership was selected from over 50 applicants. Providing the widest possible representation, the committee includes seven representatives from the  Portland South Waterfront and Johns Landing area, including two Johns Landing condo owners; five representatives from the unincorporated area between Portland and Lake Oswego, including three property owners along the Willamette Shore Line right of way; seven representatives from Lake Oswego,  including each affected neighborhood and two downtown business owners; one representative from West Linn.

In addition to these geographic perspectives, many committee members also commute in the corridor by bike, auto and transit, including at least three who regularly commute by auto on Highway 43 and one who uses accessible transit.

What is a community advisory committee?

A community advisory committee brings stakeholders in direct and regular contact with planners and policymakers. Members review and provide input on project information as it is developed, particularly as it relates to the communities in the corridor. Committee members are important to the process because they provide unique input that combines ongoing, detailed knowledge of the project with the perspectives of community residents, business owners and stakeholders. Members are also important liaisons to their communities through formal neighborhood, civic and business groups and informal networks of friends, coworkers and neighbors.
