At the City Council meeting on May 2, 2016, the City Council opened a public hearing on a set of proposed amendments to Wilsonville’s 2013 Transportation Systems Plan; known collectively as the “2016 TSP Amendment.” The City Council voted to continue the public hearing and keep open the public record until the May 16 City Council meeting in order to provide the public additional time to review the proposed changes and provide public comment.
The TSP is the City’s long-term policy and planning document for all types of transportation improvements including vehicular, bicycle, pedestrian, transit and freight projects. The Plan also features higher priority projects that are planned to be implemented over a 20-year timeframe through the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP), development review processes and occasionally by other agencies.
The recommended TSP amendments include the following project modifications grouped by location:
1. For the proposed Coffee Creek Industrial Area of northwest Wilsonville: • Replacing the northern unconstructed Kinsman Road segment between Ridder Road and Day Road with a three-lane collector along the existing Garden Acres Road alignment as a higher priority truck and bike route.• Adding the proposed east-west Java Road collector, including a bicycle route.• Adding a sidewalk infill project on Boones Ferry Road from Commerce Circle Loop to Day Road.
2. For the proposed Frog Pond residential area:• Adding designated collector roadways and updating the proposed trail locations included in the recently adopted Frog Pond Area Plan. • Adding the collector roadways and site improvements associated with the new Meridian Creek Middle School and City park site off of Advance Road.
3. Adding Printer Parkway on the former Xerox campus as a public street and classifying as a collector, a bike route and a higher priority project.
On April 13 the Planning Commission conducted a public hearing on the proposed TSP amendments and forwarded a unanimous recommendation of approval to the City Council.
