Subject: [OR_Climate_News] OGWC Transportation and Land Use Committee -
first meeting

Transportation and Land Use Committee of the Oregon Global Warming Commission to hold first meeting April 24 
The Transportation and Land Use Committee of the Oregon Global Warming Commission (OGWC) will hold its first meeting on Thursday, April 24 from 1:00 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Port of Portland, 121 NW Everett St. in Portland. The meeting is open to the public.
The OGWC is a 25-member advisory group created by the 2007 Legislature through House Bill 3543. Governor Kulongoski appointed most of the members and directed them to develop long-term policy recommendations to prepare for, adapt to, and combat global warming. The Transportation and Land Use Committee of the OGWC is charged with identifying incentive and regulatory tools for achieving greenhouse gas reduction goals in the transportation sector, and with evaluating adaptation needs resulting from climate change impacts to transportation infrastructure.
Eric Lemelson and Bill Wyatt serve as co-Chairs of the committee. Eric Lemelson owns and manages Lemelson Vineyards and is Treasurer and a Director of the Lemelson Foundation. Bill Wyatt is Executive Director of the Port of Portland and previously served as Chief of Staff to former Oregon Governor Kitzhaber.
The first meeting will include a discussion of the committee’s scope and function, a briefing on Oregon's existing transportation and land use planning processes with a discussion of future needs, and discussions about upcoming committee work plans and coordination with other relevant groups. A full meeting agenda is attached._______________________________________________
