You may find ballots in your mailbox this week so let’s talk about Measure 26-218 Let’s Get Moving 2020!
This measure funds “off-street biking and walking facilities, and traffic signal and intersection upgrades.”
Of course, there’s a business funded opposition to this and you may have seen ads on your TV or computer via YouTube.
So what say you, BikePortland Forum community? What are your opinions on this?
I’ll share mine. It’s a small tax to pay. Literally none of the businesses pictured in the negative ads will actually pay this tax which will affect less than 10% of local businesses and it does deliver substantial improvements to the area. I talked to my local officials about this measure and am voting for it.
Here’s a news segment about the measure.
