This new sidewalk and landscape strip is less
than two years old. The BRT plan will widen

The BRT plans and information in this web page come from Metro's South Corridor Study plan book 2-5-02 and from maps and information presented at public meetings sponsored by Metro. Metro claims that this plan can be changed; however, they are only offering you minor changes by moving the road or a driveway a few feet to pacify you. A bad plan never dies at Metro unless we kill it dead. As a community we must all stand together and tell Metro "NO BUILD" to BRT or we will be stuck with the results of increased congestion, job losses, and business that will be destroyed because of this project.
"Silence Is Considered Acceptance"
Decisions will be made by the county soon. Now is the time to help our community.
1. Get the word out by telling other business and land owners on McLoughlin about
BRT and this web page. Tell other citizens in our community about this.
2. Contact the Chamber and other organizations that help businesses.
3. Tell the Clackamas County Commissioners how disappointed you are with them and
their plans to damage our community. Send them a fax and tell them what you think!
Fax (503) 650-8944 (All faxes become part of the public record).
The BRT plan has been tabled for now.
It seems that a bunch of business owners objected, and
the Clackamas County Commissioners didn't want to spend the general fund or gas tax money on this
project at this time. If this plan re-surfaces we will let
you know. While you're here go ahead and review
Metro's plan and what it would do to McLoughlin.
