Madrone Wall: Public Involvement Meeting #3, OR

WHERE: Clackamas County Sunnybrook Service
Center Auditorium First Floor
9101 S.E. Sunnybrook Blvd.
Clackamas, Oregon 97015
(Off Exit 14 of I-205 north of Oregon City)

WHEN: Wednesday, October 29; 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Clackamas County is working with the community to complete a feasibility study and develop a Concept Parks Master Plan for the Madrone Wall and is soliciting public input. This is the THIRD AND LAST public involvement meeting planned by the County. It is, therefore, YOUR LAST OPPORTUNITY to provide the County with your input, in a public forum, on the future uses of and improvements to this site, including the potential creation of a park. A park concept plan WITHOUT climbing is still on the table. We need your support to see that one of the plans that supports climbing are overwhelmingly supported.

Comments, suggestions, or questions regarding this Park Master Planning process should be sent to Katie Dunham at kdunham@co.clackamas.or.us (503-794-8051), or Chris VanDuzer at chrisv@co.clackamas.or.us (503-353-4663). Submissions will be presented at the Public Meeting.

Please continue to respect Clackamas Countys current NO TRESSPASSING posting at the site. This public site remains closed to public access as the County establishes what to do next. The County is working to complete the Concept Parks Master Plan for the site this fall. It is considering what uses may be possible and allowed, how traffic may flow in and out of the site, resource protection, and educational and recreational potential. As part of the budgeting process, the County is also evaluating what capital improvements may be needed (e.g., onsite parking), the cost of capital improvements, and how and when to establish funding, including the possible application for matching grants to fund improvements.

PLEASE ATTEND the last scheduled public parks master plan meeting on October 29 and participate in this future-defining process!
