Draft plan for Rhody to be presented Feb. 10 posted on 02/01/2021

Clackamas County and MIG Consultants will host an online virtual meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10 to present a draft of the Rhododendron Main Street Site Redevelopment Plan. The plan will include feedback from a survey and video conducted in December on three design alternatives for the community, including associated transit, frontage and crossing improvements.

The December survey received a total of 239 responses.

Scott Hoelscher, Clackamas County Senior Planner noted that feedback received from the Feb. 10 meeting will be used to make further refinements to the plan and that one more final meeting to review the draft will be held. After that, it will be packaged into a final report.

Hoelscher added that he hopes to make the information that will be presented at the Feb. 10 meeting available to the public at another location, allowing people who don’t have internet access a chance to offer comments.

Steve Graeper, President of the Rhododendron Community Planning Organization, which has spearheaded the “Rhody Rising” efforts, agreed that it is important for more people to be a part of the process.

“There are a lot of people on the Mountain that don’t have access or are uncomfortable with the internet,” he said.

The project is a partnership with Mt. Hood Holdings, LLC, Rhododendron Community Planning Organization (CPO), Clackamas County and the Transportation and Growth Management Program (TGM). The Rhododendron Main Street Site Redevelopment Plan offers an opportunity for local residents and businesses to plan for redevelopment in a way that reduces demand on the transportation system while accommodating desired workforce housing.

The project area centers on two privately held properties on the southwest side of Hwy. 26 totaling 3.73 acres. Publicly owned lands adjacent to the Rhododendron Swinging Bridge and the Rhododendron Community Landscape at the Barlow Trail Oregon Historic Marker are also included.
