THPRD Natural Resources Survey: The THPRD Comprehensive Plan Update, completed July 2013, outlines the mission and vision to guide park district operations for the next decade. Part of that process is the development of the THPRD’s Natural Resources Functional Plan. The plan will provide broad guidance to manage THPRD’s natural resources and will include a habitat mapping tool, a land management prioritization matrix, guidelines for development in natural areas, and targets for habitat management.

CPO 1 Hot Topics


UPDATE:
Following the public hearing on June 17th, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided to refer a proposed countywide vehicle registration fee to the voters in November.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.

SURVEY RESULTS

...

How much would the fee cost, and what will it cover?

The fee, as discussed, would be $22, $30 or $43 per year. The proposed fee is meant to address a $10.5 million shortfall in road maintenance. Depending on the amount of the fee, it would fix most county roads, it may cover the shortfall in road maintenance and guard against budget gaps in the next 15 to 20 years. The revenues would be shared 60 percent to 40 percent by the county and the cities, based on their population.

How big is the shortfall?

This year, $33 million is needed for road maintenance, but the county only has $23 million. The gap in needed maintenance and available funds is projected to grow to $22 million by 2021. Last fiscal year, the road fund revenues were up 2 percent from the previous year, but expenses rose by more than 5 percent.

What happens if the fee does not get passed?

Much needed maintenance would not get done. Roads and bridges would fall into disrepair, requiring costly reconstruction in the future.

UPDATE:
Following the public hearing on June 17th, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided to refer a proposed countywide vehicle registration fee to the voters in November.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.

SURVEY RESULTS

...

How much would the fee cost, and what will it cover?

The fee, as discussed, would be $22, $30 or $43 per year. The proposed fee is meant to address a $10.5 million shortfall in road maintenance. Depending on the amount of the fee, it would fix most county roads, it may cover the shortfall in road maintenance and guard against budget gaps in the next 15 to 20 years. The revenues would be shared 60 percent to 40 percent by the county and the cities, based on their population.

How big is the shortfall?

This year, $33 million is needed for road maintenance, but the county only has $23 million. The gap in needed maintenance and available funds is projected to grow to $22 million by 2021. Last fiscal year, the road fund revenues were up 2 percent from the previous year, but expenses rose by more than 5 percent.

What happens if the fee does not get passed?

Much needed maintenance would not get done. Roads and bridges would fall into disrepair, requiring costly reconstruction in the future.

UPDATE:
Following the public hearing on June 17th, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided to refer a proposed countywide vehicle registration fee to the voters in November.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.

SURVEY RESULTS

...

How much would the fee cost, and what will it cover?

The fee, as discussed, would be $22, $30 or $43 per year. The proposed fee is meant to address a $10.5 million shortfall in road maintenance. Depending on the amount of the fee, it would fix most county roads, it may cover the shortfall in road maintenance and guard against budget gaps in the next 15 to 20 years. The revenues would be shared 60 percent to 40 percent by the county and the cities, based on their population.

How big is the shortfall?

This year, $33 million is needed for road maintenance, but the county only has $23 million. The gap in needed maintenance and available funds is projected to grow to $22 million by 2021. Last fiscal year, the road fund revenues were up 2 percent from the previous year, but expenses rose by more than 5 percent.

What happens if the fee does not get passed?

Much needed maintenance would not get done. Roads and bridges would fall into disrepair, requiring costly reconstruction in the future.

Portland Metro Area Air Quality Workshop Friday, June 6, 2014

This Friday June 6, Rep. Mitch Greenlick (Chair of the House Committee on Health Care) and Sen. Mike Dembrow (Chair of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee) are sponsoring a workshop on the link between toxic air pollution in the Portland metro area and risks to public health.

Portland Metro Area Air Quality Workshop: 9am to 3pm Friday, June 6, Portland Community College/Cascade Campus, 705 N. Killingsworth St., Portland OR - Moriarty Auditorium

The workshop is open to the public. Check out the agenda (linked here) featuring speakers from agencies, citizen advocate groups, the Legislature and Governor’s office, and Metro. Locally, Miki Barnes and Jim Lubischer from Oregon Aviation Watch will give a presentation on Hillsboro Airport and lead emissions, and staff of Port of Portland and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality will be on hand to respond.

CPO Talk

CalendarContact Us

CPOTalk, an email and news discussion group, gives CPO members an opportunity to share information, seek advice on issues from members of other CPOs, hear about upcoming events and generally keep in touch with each other.

To sign up for the discussion group, please go to the following website to submit your request:

http://lists.oregonstate.edu/mailman/listinfo/cpotalk

To keep email messages to a minimum, you can elect to receive messages in digest form (one email a day with all messages received within a 24-hour period). 

CPOTalk is open to Washington County residents and persons owning businesses or properties within CPO boundaries and who also participate in their local CPO. The intent of the forum is to encourage and support citizen discussion of land-use issues relating to growth and development, transportation, affordable housing, natural resources, watersheds, and other matters that impact the livability of Washington County communities.

CPOTalk standards will mirror those for CPO meetings with an expectation of respectful dialogue, balancing the views presented on topics of interest, not promoting the aims/goals of other advocacy organizations, no campaigning for elective office and/or initiatives and no fundraising.

CPOTalk encourages postings that include, but are not limited to:

  • Sharing information and ideas on involving/recruiting Washington County citizens in the public processes that affect their community’s livability
  • Informing members within CPOs of emerging concerns or time-sensitive issues
  • Requesting specific information on topics of interest
  • Announcing events (workshops, training sessions, meetings, fairs, etc)
  • Posting articles or notices of general interest on land-use issues, ordinances, legislation, etc.

CPO coordinators also use CPOTalk to distribute information that is of general interest or which may be time-sensitive.

CPOTalk is a restricted discussion list which means that membership requires approval by the list administrator, Margot Barnett, Oregon State University Extension Service CPO program coordinator. The approval process will protect persons from receiving unrelated and unwanted emails. Emails to the discussion group will not be moderated (that is, reviewed before being distributed to the members). Members can set email preferences to receive either individual messages or a digest of all emails received during a day; the latter helps to control the number of emails received. If warranted, topics will also be archived.

For other information about CPOTalk, contact Margot Barnett at 503-821-1114.
