NOTICE OF ELECTION

NOTICE OF ELECTION

I, Catherine Schneider, City Recorder of the City of Lake Oswego, certify that on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, an election will be held by mail within the City of Lake Oswego, Oregon.  This election will be held in conjunction with the General Election.
At said election, three City Councilors will be elected. The three candidates receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to four-year terms. Lake Oswego City Councilors are elected “at-large.”
LAKE OSWEGO CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES

•    Ed Brockman
•    Joe Buck
•    Jeff Gudman
•    Matt Keenen
•    Jackie Manz

MEASURE 3-452

The City has referred one ballot measure.  The ballot title is as follows:

CAPTION:

CHARTER AMENDMENTS REGARDING ELECTIONS TO APPROVE NEW OR WIDENED ROADS

QUESTION:

Shall the City Charter be amended regarding signatures, and degree of road -widening, necessary to require elections approving road projects?

SUMMARY:

This measure was referred to the ballot by the Lake Oswego City Council.

The Lake Oswego Charter currently requires a city-wide election to approve construction of any “major road” or “major road expansion” if an election request is signed by at least 25 registered City voters. This ballot measure increases the required number of signatures to at least three percent of all registered City voters (under current registration numbers, 758 signatures).

The Charter defines “major road” as any new road having pavement over 32 feet wide. This will remain unchanged.

The Charter currently defines “major road expansion” as increasing the pavement width of an existing road by any amount, if the road will be over 20 feet wide after the widening. It does not include road maintenance or repair that does not significantly increase road width. This ballot measure changes the definition of “major road expansion” to mean increasing pavement width to add at least one new automobile traveling lane extending for at least 500 feet.

A “yes” vote amends the Charter as described.

For more information contact the City Recorder/City Elections Officer at 503-675-3984.
