MAX: Public Comment Opportunities

The end of the public comment period for the Milwaukie MAX project is quickly approaching. People have until Noon on Monday June 23rd to submit their comments and concerns. All comments that are submitted by this date will be included in the Final Environmental Impact Statement.

The BAC Board will be submitting a formal letter of response, and we strongly encourage area residents, employees, and property owners to do the same.

  1. When we ask the politians in DC to give us money for roads, don’t be surprised when they ask us to fight for oil.
