Weekly Updates

This page keeps you up-to-date on the progress of the project through weekly updates. Every week we take you inside the inner workings of our team - what we are up to, who we have spoken to, progress made, and issues resolved. Occassionally we'll ask local officials, business owners, and residents to share their thoughts about transportation in Seaside. And we will always be taking your comments and questions. Check back every Friday for a new update!

October 2010

October 29, 2010 We are happy to announce that the revised Seaside TSP is now available online! This document includes your comments, comments from City staff, DLCD and ODOT. This version of the TSP will be presented to the Planning Commission and City Council for adoption, in a process outlined in the September 24th, 2010 weekly update post. Please check the city’s website for information about how to provide public comment through the adoption process.

Thank you to all who provided guidance and comments on the draft document, attended the public meetings, and provided feedback on this website. The TSP provides a path forward for the City to help attract funding for the projects to make Seaside a place where it is safe and convenient to move about, whether on foot, bike, or in a vehicle.

October 22, 2010 The implementing ordinances for City Code and the Comprehensive Plan have been finalized. Appendix G is now complete and posted in the Project Library section. Over the next week the project team will be making the last edits to the TSP document, and delivering it to the City to initiate adoption. Next steps for the City include worksessions with both the City Council and Planning Commission, public hearings with both bodies, a recommendation on the Plan from the Planning Commission to the City Council, and the City Council’s decision on the plan. For more information about the process, please see the September 24th, 2010 post which outlines the expected steps.

October 15, 2010 This week the team worked to finalize the ordinance language that supports the TSP, in response to straggling comments from the Project Management Team. This language is important in that it will be adopted into the City’s Zoning Ordinance and the City’s Comprehensive Plan. We are expecting to deliver the revised TSP to the City for adoption by the end of this month. Stay tuned!

October 8, 2010 Next week from October 12-16th, the American Kite Flyers Association will hold their National Convention at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center. This is the 33rd year for the competition and exhibition. Some parts of the convention are open to the public, and there are public displays throughout the week. Check the American Kitefliers Association website for more info.

Schedule of Events is online. Approximately 500 people are expected to attend, so be prepared for some increased traffic and activities throughout the week.

October 1, 2010 Happy Autumn! School is back in session, which means a return to classes, shorter days, and more school children present on or near roadways. School zones are now active and school buses are back on the road. To help with back-to-school safety, ODOT has published a brochure on school safety to help create safe environments for school children.

The draft Seaside TSP has a number of projects that would help facilitate bicyclists and pedestrians, which would serve the school age population, as well as visitors and residents. Recommended projects include bicycle and pedestrian bridges, adding sidewalks along US 101, upgrading intersections with pedestrian amenities such as curb ramps, and shared lane markings. Many of these improvements are classified as short or medium term projects and are able to access funding sources targeted specifically for pedestrians and bicyclists. The TSP would help enhance the pedestrian experience in Seaside.

ODOT has a walkability assessment online – feel free to take the assessment and see how draft TSP projects may improve the walkability near you!
