Friends and Members of the SECNA -
As many of you may have heard, the Planning Commission has held open the public hearing for the Transportation System Plan hoping to gather more public input. The meeting is tomorrow evening (Monday 8/23 7:00 p.m. at the Omni Room at the High School.) If you can send an email and attend it would be great. If you can only send an email it would be very important to show your support.
It is critical that each of you take a moment to send an email of support for TSP to the Planning Commission because if the TSP does not pass the old TSP will remain in place, which has 13th Ave as the Industrial Park's truck route. The proposed TSP needs to be approved because it will prevent 13th Ave from become a truck route for the Industrial Park.
There are strong detractors to the TSP over concern for the one-way loop through downtown. You do not need to mention this topic at all. Just ask that the Planning Commission recommend approval of the TSP because you think it is critically important that the industrial park's truck traffic use 99E and stay off of 13th Ave as stated in Goal 1 Policy D of the proposed TSP.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have (266-1820). Here is a link to the City of Canby website open the "Recommended Canby Transportation System Plan Final". http://www.ci.canby.or.us/

Please send your email to Jill Thorn tho...@ci.canby.or.us and cc: Matilda de...@ci.canby.or.us asap and for sure by 5:00 tomorrow so the Commissioners will have your testimony prior to the meeting.
Please encourage friends to do the same. Sorry for the late notice, life has throw me a couple curveballs the past couple weeks.
