Information about the Gas Tax


At last week's meeting, our board voted to endorse a proposed gas tax on the upcoming ballot that would fund safety and road improvements across Portland. 

Learn more about the proposed tax here: http://www.fixourstreetsportland.com/

Fix Our Streets Campaign Manager Aaron Brown also provided the following information as follow-up to some questions raised during the meeting. In regards to the question of whether TriMet will have to pay this tax: TriMet will be exempt from paying this tax. In regards to whether the tax will fund improvements along N Lombard, he hasn't found any more information about funding for N Lombard. However, here is the full list of projects that would be funded via the revenue generated by the tax: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/article/558947
