Cedar Hills Park Expansion

The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has purchased about 1.7 acres from the Beaverton School District. The property on the west side of William Walker Elementary School at 11940 SW Lynnfield Lane is adjacent to the park and will be used to expand and improve the park. THPRD and school district leaders signed an intergovernmental agreement last year that addresses shared access, shared parking and other issues besides the property sale. THPRD’s plan includes two full-size, multipurpose, synthetic turf sports fields with lights; a splash pad water play area; play equipment; permanent restrooms; a picnic area; walking path; and a community garden. Redevelopment will be funded by THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2016 and finish by spring 2017.

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.

UPDATE:

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.

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.

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.

Meets the second Monday of each month

at 7 pm in the North Plains Fire Station
31370 NW Commercial, North Plains.


CPO 8 does not have a meeting scheduled for August.


Your CPO needs you!

CPO 8 leadership has been held by interim leaders for the past year. If no citizen members come forward to take on roles to run CPO 8, the organization will be declared officially inactive in January 2015. Monthly CPO 8 newsletters will continue for the rest of 2014.

CPO leadership is

a rewarding experience.

CPO leaders:

  • Organize and hold CPO meetings which give people the opportunity to exhange information and concerns, and in some cases develop strategies to address those concerns about their community.
  • Lead efforts to keep community members informed of upcoming land use, transportation, and environmental projects.
  • Provide forums that present both sides of an issue.
  • Build connections by engaging with community leaders, elected officials, and representatives from agency and district service providers.
  • Are given the opportunity to build leadership skills through trainings and the experience of operating a citizen organization.

If you are considering getting involved, a CPO Volunteer Orientation is being planned for September.

Find out more about the benefits of CPOs — including tools, resources, and leadership opportunities — as well as program basics. Interested? Contact Dan Schauer: 503-821-1123 or dan.schauer@oregonstate.edu

Hillsboro Airport Parallel Runway

This summer, Hillsboro residents will notice some changes starting to occur at Hillsboro Airport as the Port of Portland begins construction on the new parallel runway. The parallel runway was identified in the 2003-2005 Hillsboro Airport Master Plan as a way to reduce congestion and delays while also improving efficiency at the airport. The runway will allow for a separation between departing/arriving aircraft and aircraft in the training patterns. The Port is reaching out to community members to provide information.

Those with questions or concerns are invited to contact Brooke Berglund at 503-415-6532 or brooke.berglund@portofportland.com

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.

Leadership

CPO 9 generally meets the second Monday

of odd-numbered months (January, March, etc.)
at 7 pm at the Hillsboro Main Library
2nd Floor Board Room
2850 NE Brookwood Pkwy, Hillsboro.

 


CPO 9 does not have meetings scheduled in August
or September.

Your CPO needs you!

CPO 9 leadership resigned in July after completing their terms for the past year. If no citizen members come forward to take on roles to run CPO 9, the organization will be declared officially inactive in January 2015. Monthly CPO 9 newsletters will continue for the rest of 2014.

CPO leadership is a rewarding experience.

CPO leaders:

  • Organize and hold CPO meetings which give people the opportunity to exhange information and concerns, and in some cases develop strategies to address those concerns about their community.
  • Lead efforts to keep community members informed of upcoming land use, transportation, and environmental projects.
  • Provide forums that present both sides of an issue.
  • Build connections by engaging with community leaders, elected officials, and representatives from agency and district service providers.
  • Are given the opportunity to build leadership skills through trainings and the experience of operating a citizen organization.

If you are considering getting involved, a CPO Volunteer Orientation is being planned for September.

Find out more about the benefits of CPOs — including tools, resources, and leadership opportunities — as well as program basics. Interested? Contact Dan Schauer: 503-821-1123 or dan.schauer@oregonstate.edu

UPDATE:

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 

According to Senator Dembrow, "It's my hope that this workshop will begin a conversation about potential legislation for the 2015 session around air quality.  We'll have several Portland-area legislators in attendance."

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. The Hillsboro Airport segment begins at 11:30 am. There will be a public comment session from 2:00 to 2:45 pm. Lunch is “on your own.”

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.
