Here are links to the meeting agenda & the staff report on the community center construction bond. Per the staff report, if the measure passed, the city would issue up to $48 million in construction bonds and the estimated tax rate would be 35 cents per $1,000 assessed property. The citizen volunteer Finance Committee would monitor bond revenues and project expenditures.
The proposed ballot summary says, "Amenities expected to include pools for lap swimming, swimming lessons, aquatic exercise classes; recreational/leisure pool with large curvy waterslide, water features for family entertainment; senior center providing activities for older adult residents; classroom meeting space for community education courses and children’s programming; gymnasium, workout/exercise facilities and equipment; community meeting space for birthday parties, meetings, community groups, events and celebrations; community kitchen, other amenities. Facilities would be centrally located in Gresham."
