Remember to vote by Tuesday

West Linn asks voters for $24 million pool facility


Ballots for the November election are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday. Residents of West Linn will vote on Measure 3-432, a $24 million bond measure for an aquatic and community center.

The question on the ballot states: “Shall the city sell bonds to refinance land and construct, equip and furnish a new indoor aquatic and community center? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to the limits of sections 11 and 11b, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution.”

The $24 million facility would be located on city-owned property near Tanner Creek Park, housing a pool with “aquatic park-like features” as well as a gym, running track, classrooms and fitness areas.

Construction of the facility would raise property taxes by an estimated 53 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, or $152 per year on a home valued at $285,000.

Should the measure pass, estimated fees for adult membership at the aquatic center are $43 per month, or $500 annually. Family memberships would be $63 per month and $750 annually, while seniors and youths would get in for a discount at $30 per month and $350 annually.

Ballots must be received by the county or at a designated drop-off box by 8 p.m. Tuesday. West Linn has two ballot boxes, one located outside of city hall at 22500 Salamo Road and the other inside the West Linn Public Library at 1595 Burns St.
