Reasons to Support Commissioner Saltzman’s proposal
• Portland is projected to grow to 700,000 by 2020. Portland will remain a desirable place for new growth and development; building the costs of parks, trails and natural areas into the cost of development is essential having quality development in our neighborhoods.
• Satlzman’s proposal increase in Portland’s park SDCs will address deficiencies in park acquisition and development in high growth neighborhoods east of I-205. The increase in park funding will expand the entire park, trail and greenway system in all its components while helping address geographic and social disparities in park access. • Charging SDCs for employment-related and commercial development makes sense. It will ensure businesses pay their fair share in supporting vibrant business districts and quality workplaces with adequate parks and trails.
