February 2023 SEN Transportation Committee Report

Heather Murphy Meet n Greet – On March 20, members of the committee met with our new Board Director for our region, Heather Murphy. Ms/ Murphy lives in Cottage Grove, but used to live in SEN years ago and has an understanding of the geography here. She has spoken to GM James Auten on our behalf and suggests that we schedule a meeting with him. The group shared our strong wish to support LTD and optimizing operations in our neighborhood. We thank Ms. Murphy for generously giving of her time to us and the LTD organization.

The committee agreed to designate volunteers to work with Ready Southeast to write a letter to the city regarding the failure of the Spring Boulevard bridge overpass to pass a seismic inspection. This letter is to be voted on by the SEN Board at the April meeting. There are no current plans to retrofit or replace the bridge.

LTD Customer Satisfaction Survey- please take before April 30th:
Dennis had another meeting with planners at Tugman sidewalk project, expressing further concern regarding the bump-out sidewalk feature.
Work Plan – Lucy Bambrey has constructed a work plan for the Transportation Committee that we will work from each meeting.

Move Eug is the new City initiative to engage the public on how to spend the active transportation funding from the latest bond measure. There is a survey as well as a map where spots can be identified by neighbors. We encourage everyone to participate in our neighborhood!
