Road Safety Audit of Stafford Road is coming | Fall 2017

The Road Safety Audit (RSA) will work along all 6.5 miles of Stafford Road from Rosemont Roundabout to Homestead Road. It is scheduled to begin sometime in the fall. In order to stay connected, please follow the The Stafford Hamlet Facebook Page and/or sign up for our Community Newsletter. After the completion of the RSA, the team is willing to give a presentation on the results.

How can I be involved in the Road Safety Audit?

The RSA is carried out by a team of professional traffic engineers. They will welcome any specific roadway concerns you have. Please send them to us and we will collate and pass them on to the team. Use this form.

Lake Oswego, Tualatin and West Linn have opposed Metros desire to urbanize Stafford for over twenty years. Clackamas County needs to know we aren't looking for unreasonable development!

Why is Stafford opposed to "50,000 New Residents" and where did that number come from?


• Professional Land Use Plans submitted by local developers,

   Aug 2016 to Clackamas County Commissioners

• Net 2,000 Acres could be developed

• Based on low Metro densities of ten residential units per acres 

   and 2.5 residents, that means 50,000 NEW STAFFORD residents

• Report is misleading, “Stafford Character maintained” but NO 

   SPECIFIC number of “New” people moving to area

• Only states the net area to be “urbanized” in acres, not how 

   many people added

You decide, FACT or FICTION?

Thank you for your interest and support!

“WE HAVE THE ANSWER” it’s The Stafford Compromise!
