The Oregon City-Metro Enhancement Committee will meet on Wednesday, May 29, to review and approve proposals for the 2013-14 grant cycle.

The review meeting will be held at City Hall, 625 Center St., starting at 5:30 p.m. in the City Commission chambers. The committee is comprised of nine members appointed by and including the mayor, city commissioners, three citizens and Metro Councilor Carlotta Collette.

The grant program was created in 1988 as part of an agreement between Oregon City and Metro. It funds projects that result in the rehabilitation, improvement and enhancement of areas within the city and/or provides opportunities that benefit residents of the city.

The program compensates the community affected by Metro South Station, the garbage transfer station at the corner of Highway 213 and Washington Street. The fund is generated by a 50 cents-per-ton surcharge collected on garbage disposed of at the station.

This year the OC-MEC received seven grant applications totaling requests of $66,580 and includes:

• $10,000, Clackamas County Historical Society — Museum of the Oregon Territory: Steel Roof Repair and Window Restoration

• $16,008, John McLoughlin Elementary School PTSO — Track Rehabilitation Project

• $15,000, Main Street Oregon City — Downtown Gateways: Determine Theme and Install Initial Structure
