Tribe’s Transportation Program Seeking Public Involvement in Future Work


Grand Ronde Rural Transport Equity Project


The Grand Ronde Rural Transportation Equity project will create a multimodal connectivity plan that identifies transportation investments based on the community’s highest priorities. The project is funded through a Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) grant.

As part of this effort, we are pulling together a stakeholder advisory committee, conducting focus groups, launching a survey in conjunction with an open house and a couple tabling events. Our goal is to get broad participation from the community to identify priorities.


There are several ways to participate:


Join the Stakeholder Advisory Committee:

The Tribe has received several grants to assist with their transportation planning work. John Mercier, the Tribe’s Public Works and Tribal Transportation Program Manager is looking to involve the public in this work by convening a Stakeholders Advisory Committee that will provide their thoughts, insights, and advice involving all aspects of transportation including roads, highways, bicycle/pedestrian facilities, intersections, crossings, transit, safety, and repair.  These efforts will look at future transportation needs, and thoughts/advice how to best provide safe and efficient transportation facilities for our community’s future.


This opportunity is open to both Tribal Members and Community Members. Individuals on the Stakeholders Advisory Committee will be required to meet with Transportation Staff and Consultants by attending 4 to 6 meetings that will begin in early April and wrap up to the end of June. Anyone interested in participating may contact John Mercier at the contact information below.


Take the Survey:
The survey asks questions about both the feasibility of a Tribal School and priorities for multimodal transportation improvements.


April 12 – April 26, 2023


Attend the Open House:
Information about multimodal transportation improvements and the feasibility of a Tribal School will be presented and feedback sought. The open house will be livestreamed on Facebook. Materials presented at the open house will be available on this webpage after the open house.
