SUMMARY: If approved, this measure would allow the eastern portion of Hidden Springs Open Space to be used for road improvements, including required grading to install sidewalks and separated bike lanes along Highway 43. Highway 43 road improvements are proposed in this area to provide improved facilities that are safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. The 2016 West Linn Transportation System Plan TSP identified a need for bike and pedestrian routes that connect parks, schools, and retail. The TSP includes bicycle and pedestrian facilities along Highway 43 as high priorities. The City is putting this measure on the ballot because Section 46 of the City Charter requires West Linn voters to approve any use of City owned open space for a nonauthorized use
