SUMMARY: This measure would form the Molalla Aquatic District (District) as an independent parks and recreation district under Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 266. The stated primary purpose of the District is to operate and maintain the Molalla Aquatic Center. The proposed boundaries of the District are the same as those of the Molalla River School District, which passed the bond to construct the Molalla Aquatic Center. The Molalla Aquatic Center is currently owned by the Molalla River School District, and is not open to the public due to a lack of funding. If established with a yes vote, this District would have the ability to levy a permanent tax rate of $0.29 per $1000 on the assessed value of real property within the boundaries of the District. These funds are intended to support the operation and maintenance of the Molalla Aquatic Center and any other park and recreation activity approved by its governing body. A new five member volunteer Board of Directors from within its boundaries will be elected to govern the District. This ballot title was filed with the County Clerk of Clackamas County on Thursday, February 23, 2017.
