City of Gladstone - Measure 3-413           This measure authorizes the Gladstone City Council to incur debt through the issuance of municipal bonds to finance and construct a new Gladstone Library. Funding sources to finance, construct, and operate the new library, Clackamas County Capital Contribution - One time contribution of $2.5 million, Clackamas County Library Fund - Library support of approximately $1.32 million per year, increased from $537,000 the City currently receives, Gladstone Urban Renewal Agency Funds - Current and future revenues for the Gladstone Urban Renewal Agency ranging from $140,763 to $261,070 per year depending on loan repayment period, City General Fund- lncreased Clackamas County Library District funds for library operations will allow the City to redirect General Fund money of approximately $114,365 per year that is currently allocated for library operations to pay part of debt incurred for the library.
The design for the new library is approximately 97% complete. The City has spent $1,189,278 and cannot recover that money if the project is not completed.

There are no new taxes associated with this proposal.
                Yes         2,227     (43.7%)

City of Lake Oswego - Measure  3-405    This measure authorizes the City to issue general obligation bonds not to exceed $14 million to pay a portion of the cost of the design and construction of a new library of approximately 60,000 square feet in the vicinity of First and B Avenue, replacing the existing library at Fourth and D. The new library would include more space for library collections, study and computer areas, and areas for adult, teen, and children's programming. The library would also include community meeting and program space. The City plans to augment bond proceeds with other resources such as urban renewal funds and existing library capital funds to pay for the balance of the library costs and associated parking and site improvements. If the maximum bond amount is issued, the estimated property tax rate would be 17 cents per $1,000 of Assessed Value (not Real Market Value). The bonds would mature in not more than 25 years.

                Yes         8,042     (42.1%)
                No          11,040   (57.9%)
