Welcome to the Second Community Survey!

The City of Camas is working to improve the intersection of NE Lake Road and NE Everett Street (State Route 500), located between Lacamas Lake and Round Lake. As you’ve likely noticed, community and regional growth have increased traffic, causing safety and mobility concerns for the community. Our hope is to address these challenges – and you’re a vital part of the process!

The City previously asked for community input to evaluate different options for intersection improvements, including signalized and roundabout design options. The City received an outpouring of community and stakeholder input through emails, the first online survey, stakeholder interviews, project advisory committee meetings, City Council meetings, and the first community open house. Based on the alternatives analysis and comments received, a roundabout option stood out as the best option to meet the needs of the Camas community. However, we still need your input! 

Within the recommended preferred roundabout alternative, there are two options. Please take a moment to identify your preferred option and help the City complete this important project. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Once finished, the results of the survey will be compiled into a summary that will help guide the project as it moves ahead. No personal information other than what you provide will be collected or used, and no responses included in the survey summary will be attributed to any individual.

Questions with an asterisk (*) require a response.
