Multnomah County is recruiting about 20 volunteers to participate in a Community Design Advisory Group (CDAG) for the Earthquake Ready Burnside Bridge project to provide feedback to the county on aesthetic components of the new bridge.

The Replacement Long Span bridge was selected as the Preferred Alternative during the Environmental Review Phase. In the Final Design Phase, the county will review and refine design details of the Preferred Alternative before the project heads to construction.

The CDAG will meet bi-monthly for two hours starting in 2023 through 2024. While the majority of meetings will be virtual, periodic in-person meetings will be held depending on the subject matter.  Agenda and meeting materials will be provided in advance. We will make every effort to offer ADA accommodations and can work with CDAG members to meet individual needs as they arise.

Application Process

The application submission period closed December 4th. The county will review all applications and make selections based on applicant background, subject matter experience and organizations or communities they represent to ensure the group reflects a diverse range of interests. Applicants may receive a follow-up phone call if additional information is needed.

The project team will notify applicants of committee selection and project next steps via email in January 2023.
