Lake Oswego streetcar project Open House 12/16

To All COLA LO Members,

The proposed Lake Oswego Streetcar Project has entered a phase where it is critically important that the public be heard. The DEIS (Draft Environmental Impact Study) is available, both online at www.oregonmetro.gov/lakeoswego, and at the library. The public comment period runs from now until January 31st and there are a number of ways to comment. 

This Thursday, December 16th, there is an Open House being held at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 State Street from 4 until 7 pm. Comment cards will be available there, as well as Tri-Met and Metro staff associated with the Project. You can also comment online at www.oregonmetro.gov/lakeoswego, e-mail your comments to trans@oregonmetro.gov, or send written comments to Lake Oswego to Portland Transit Project, 600 NE Grand Ave, Portland, OR 97232. 

The Streetcar is potentially very costly, with estimates now running to $458 million just in capital costs, and all current information about the funding sources is speculative, including the potential burden on Lake Oswego and its taxpayers.
