The Intertwine Alliance endorses the following 2020 ballot measures.
Vote YES by Nov. 3!
The coronavirus pandemic, closure of community centers and pools, and cancellation of recreation activities have created a multi-million dollar deficit for Portland Parks & Recreation.
Measure 26-213 —a five-year local option levy—is essential to restore these cuts, re-open community centers and pools, protect essential programs for families with lower incomes, and provide the recreation services we all count on.
Regional transportation Measure 26-218 will make long-overdue safety investments in 17 of our most dangerous and congested regional roads, sidewalks and bridges. It will help relieve the traffic that clogs our region, and will create an estimated 37,000 good-paying jobs to jumpstart our local economy.
It moves our region closer to its climate and racial equity goals. And there's even some funding for regional trails!
Portland Hydroparks Measure
Measure 26-219 allows the Portland Water Bureau to use its properties, outside the protected Bull Run Watershed, for secondary uses such as parks, community gardens, playgrounds, play fields and natural resource restoration.
