OCZMA works with the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to develop transportation policy for the Oregon Coast.
The relationship between ODOT and OCZMA began in the early 1990s on a Corridor Master Plan for U.S. Highway 101. “CPACT” (the Coastal Policy Advisory Committee), evolved from the process. CPACT, like other early regional transportation planning groups, provides a steady flow of information between coastal communities and ODOT.
CPACT was instrumental in having U.S. Highway 101 designated as one of the first highways in America to be designated a Scenic Byway. Later, in 2003, OCZMA & CPACT worked with communities to have U.S. Highways 101 designated as an “All American Road”.
And, CPACT/OCZMA members influence the OTC investment decisions.
