November 5 election

Most Cedar Mill voters will have only one choice to make on the ballot that will arrive mid-October. Metro is asking for us to consider a $475 million property tax measure that, if passed, would be used to purchase land, restore fish and wildlife habitat, and complete trails through Metro’s parks and nature system.

Metro manages 17,000 acres of regional parks, trails and natural areas, and provides funding for local parks and nature projects. If passed, Measure 26-203 would maintain the current tax rate of $0.19 per $1,000 of assessed value.

Other measures on the ballot are for the City of Portland, Portland Public Schools, Sherwood City, King City, and West Linn-Wilsonville Schools.

Mickie Kawai, Washington County Elections Division Manager, says, “A November election does not require a double majority (turnout and yes votes) therefore there is no minimum number of votes other than a 50%+1 ‘YES’ to win.”

October 15 is the last day to register to vote in this election. Registration cards postmarked by this date or submitted online no later than 11:59 pm are valid. The link will take you to the Oregon State page where you can check your status or register.

Happy Hour for Measure 26-203

Monday, October 7, 5:30-7 pm, BG's Food Cartel, 4250 SW Rose Biggi Ave.

Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District Board Chair Felicita Montebianco is urging a yes vote. She and other Washington County leaders are hosting this community-centered meet-and-greet to discuss the Nature for All Metro bond. Felicita says, “Join us for a fun conversation about how Measure 26-203 will impact our region today and in the years to come. Meet us at the bar!”

She continues, “This measure makes critical investments across our community to improve our air, water quality, and to protect wildlife habitats across Washington County. Moreover, Measure 26-203 brings equal outcomes across our neighborhoods, ensuring that all families have access to nature regardless of their zipcode, income, or skin color.”
