COIC Board – Local Transit Funding Sub-Committee

Purpose

The CET Funding Committee was appointed by the COIC Board to develop recommendations on four primary questions:

  • Governance: Should transit continue to be operated at the regional scale by COIC, and/or should a transit district or districts be formed?
  • Funding Geography: Should there be a single tri-county local funding solution, or a combination of funding solutions tailored to the service needs/priorities and willingness to pay of individual communities?
  • Local Funding Tool: Considering the broad array of dedicated funding tools in use in Oregon, what/which are appropriate for CET? If a fee or tax is recommended, what should the rate be?
  • Level of Service: Should the funding solution(s) be aimed at maintaining the current level of service, a highly expanded level of service, or somewhere in between?

Final Recommendations

The final recommendations of the Local Transit Funding Sub-Committee were presented to and approved by the COIC Board at their February 6, 2014 meeting.  The recommendations are available here.

Meetings

All meetings will be held from 9-11AM at the Redmond City Hall, Conference Room A, 716 NW Evergreen Ave. Redmond, OR 97756.
