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 email@example.com.

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.
