County seeks volunteers to serve on Traffic Safety Commission
Clackamas County is recruiting applicants to serve on the Traffic Safety Commission (TSC). Any interested Clackamas County resident is encouraged to apply.
The primary duty of the 12-member commission is to establish programs to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities throughout the county.
The TSC also is seeking up to three high school students to serve, to add their perspective to the discussions. Students will have the same voting rights on the TSC as the adult members.
Terms of service are four years for adults, but only three to 12 months for high school students. The intent is to not overwhelm students with a lengthy commitment, though a student who has served will have the opportunity to apply to serve again.
The Clackamas County TSC is one of the most active in the state, and plays an important role in formulating the county's transportation safety program, including:
Reviewing traffic safety, education and outreach, and providing guidance to the County Traffic Safety staff
Developing and implementing the county's Transportation Safety Action Plan, and
Working on safety education, fielding public concerns, identifying safety projects, conducting community outreach on traffic safety, and working with county traffic engineers to implement traffic safety measures on county roadways.
The TSC meets at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at the County's Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City.
