City Council Report for April 4, 2016

City-News-Logo.jpg

At the April 4, 2016, City Council meeting Wilsonville Mayor Tim Knapp proclaimed the week of April 3 - 9 as "Wilsonville Wildcats Week" in honor of Wilsonville High School Boys Varsity Basketball team that won the 5A Boys Basketball State Championship in March. In addition to numerous individual and team awards, the team also displayed excellence in the classroom with an outstanding academic achievement of placing second in the 5A Boys Basketball Academic All-State Awards with an average GPA of 3.64. The proclamation recognizes the team's achievements both on the court and in the classroom, as well as how the team brought positive exposure to Wilsonville and created a high-level of community pride.

The City Council approved a resolution authorizing the City to make a short-term "overnight" loan of an amount up to $2 million to the City's Urban Renewal Agency. The "overnight" loan is funded by the City General Fund and is to be paid back by tax increment collected within the Year 2000 Urban Renewal District. State urban renewal rules mandate that urban renewal funding may only be used to repay debt and is not allowed to directly fund urban renewal project expenses. The financing strategy makes available urban renewal funds to pay for costs associated with the Boones Ferry-to-Kinsman Connector road project (aka the proposed "Old Town Escape" roadway) and the Town Center Redevelopment Plan that are both within the Year 2000 Urban Renewal District.

During the meeting, Mayor Tim Knapp also issued three other proclamations. The first proclamation requested by the Parkinson's Action Network declares April as Parkinson's Awareness Month. The second proclamation honors Arbor Day and the City of Wilsonville's 18-year-long designation by the National Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA. The third proclamation declares April 2016 as "Volunteer Appreciation Month" and honors the hundreds of community members in Wilsonville and surrounding areas who volunteer not only for the City, but also for local schools and non-profit organizations.

During the Communications portion of the meeting the City Council heard about an upcoming Document Shredding Event that the City is co-sponsoring along with U.S. Bank and Wood Middle School on Saturday, April 16, 9 am -- 12 pm, at the bank's local branch, 29112 SW Town Center Loop West in Wilsonville.

The Council also heard from members of the Clackamas 800 Radio Group that is advocating for the passage of the May 17 Ballot Measure 3-476, Clackamas County Emergency Radio Bond, that would fund improvements to the emergency communications network used primarily by emergency services first-responders such as the police and fire-fighters.

Councilor Scott Starr presented information about the City's proposal to hold a ballot measure vote in November that, if approved, will fund construction of an 80,000-square-foot recreation and aquatic center. For more information about the proposed center visit www.WilsonvilleParksandRec.com/WRAC.

Prior to the regular meeting at the work session, City Council heard reports on a cost-saving proposal to refund water bonds, an update regarding the Tourism Promotion Committee's Annual Action/Implementation Plan and held a discussion on affordable housing programs and opportunities resulting for the recent adoption of new laws by the Oregon state legislature.
