Equity and Mobility Advisory Committee

About the Equity and Mobility Advisory Committee

An Equity and Mobility Advisory Committee is recommended to be convened in early 2020. The Equity and Mobility Advisory Committee will represent interested and potentially affected constituancies to become informed and educated, and then provide input to the OTC on strategies to improve equity and mobility outcomes associated with ODOT's I-5 and I-205 tolling projects. 

The committee shall advise the OTC by:

  • Supporting ODOT in development and implementation of an equity framework to guide project development and public engagement
  • Providing input at the beginning of the technical and environmental review process to ensure project development is grounded in the equity framework, including the refinement of performance measures and other information to evaluate alternatives for I-205 and I-5 tolling 
  • Providing input on mobility and equity strategies that should be considered as tolling projects are developed including: 
    • Availability of transit and other transportation options
    • Transportation needs of, and benefits for, people of color and people with low-incomes, limited English proficiency or disabilities that live near or travel through the project area
    • Better understanding of neighborhood benefits and impacts for the communities near the tolled facilities (e.g. changes to cut-through traffic, pedestrian and bicycle options, transit access)
  • Developing an equitable engagement plan that will result in ongoing input and participation from communities that have been historically underrepresented in transportation planning 
  • Supporting the implementation of the equitable engagement plan by hosting or cohosting meetings, events and/or other activities as determined by the engagement plan

Committee members will be appointed by the ODOT director.
