County Board adopts resolution supporting state transportation funding package

In a resolution approved April 13, the Board of County Commissioners expressed its strong support for passage of a “robust transportation funding package” by the 2017 Oregon Legislature.

The resolution highlighted a number of significant transportation infrastructure needs in Clackamas County, throughout the Portland metropolitan area, and across the state, including the following:

Clackamas County has been reaching out to its communities for years, talking about the need for transportation maintenance funds and asking for support for local transportation funding measures. Currently, Clackamas County is the only one of the three Oregon metropolitan area counties without a local source of funding such as a countywide gas tax or vehicle registration fee.

More information about the county’s priorities for the 2017 state legislative session is in the 2017 State Legislative Agenda.

For more information about county support of the state transportation funding package, contact Chris Lyons at 503-742-5909.
