|December 13th update on South Salem Transit Center|
|Concept for the South Salem Transit Center -|
Slices a strip of parking lot from Walmart (December 2015)
|Back in 2015|
I had hoped to have more of an update to post this morning.
If it turns out there was a meeting and materials are published, we'll update this post. (Updated below, with links and a couple of remarks.)
- On choosing the South Salem site (December 2014)
- The ConnectOregon saga again (March 2015)
- Cherriots readiness to employ Eminent Domain after unsatisfactory negotiations (May 2018)
Two things stand out from the summary of the history.
Turnover. There have been four Capital Projects Managers since 2010, and at each transition hand-off and documentation seems to have been a problem. Even if the project had proceeded under ideal external circumstances, this internal detail created real problems with continuity and knowledge.
|Range of next steps to consider|
But overall, there's very little concrete here that is new on the South Salem Transit Center, and probably it's accurate to consider it a new process going forward. Mostly the report is a rehearsal of the past history.
|Request from Northwest HUB|
That's great news.
Later this month on the Board meeting of the 28th they'll handle the formal action on that.
