SW Corridor - Refinement Phase and Next Steps
The Draft Staff Recommendation was recently published and open for review by the public. It contains information about the potential High Capacity Transit station areas and multimodal projects currently under consideration in the Refinement Phase. At a June 9th meeting, the recommendations and public feedback—provided in the Draft Public Involvement Report—were reviewed by the Steering Committee. The committee is considering the suggested changes to the draft recommendation based on public input, further technical analysis and partners’ discussions.
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.
