Transportation: PMLR CAC Jan. 21 Meeting Report

Update from the CAC meeting, Jan. 21, 2010

The Milwaukie Portland Light Rail Citizens Advisory Committee meeting discussed a couple topics of importance to the AJC neighborhood notably a new traffic analysis (see links below). I expressed our concerns about the traffic signal changes as outlined in our letter. Neighborhood resident Linda Hattlelid made a long and informative speech that will go in the meeting minutes.

The neighborhood letter was received well but I had no questions about it and I handed out a hard copy to those who did not receive the electronic copy. Those who care about the issue will need to follow up with their elected officials to have any impact on this issue. Also read the note from Police Chief Jordan at the end of this report.

Johnson Creek Blvd. Traffic Calming from Carlotta Collette

Dear Friends and Neighbors

How many times have you said: “I wish we could just put up a toll booth on Johnson Creek Boulevard and charge everyone cutting through our neighborhood”?

Living on the boulevard, I’ve said it a lot and heard it said often as well.

Well here’s the deal: we could actually get a pilot tolling project on the boulevard if we’re interested. We will need to request it and write the conditions under which we’d accept it, but we could be the first community in the region to toll people cutting through our neighborhood if we are interested.
