Tolling - Traffic - Transit
Our city is facing major decisions over the next few years which will impact on our livability. We have been witness to tremendous change in recent years, and if we don’t insist on careful planning to manage all that is to come we will lose what we love about Tualatin.
I believe that before we add Tolling to I-205 there must be transit alternatives to allow our citizens to reach necessary services along the I-205 corridor without having to add to their daily costs. Transit today is focused on the commute to Portland, we cannot ignore the destinations in West Linn, Oregon City, Sherwood and the like.
All of this fits into one of the most important livability issues in Tualatin -- traffic. We all know we need additional housing capacity, but as we continue to expand our city, traffic management must be considered as a core factor. Simply waiting for the County or State to 'fix it' is not viable -- we must negotiate the right solution for our citizens and our area.
