Unless somone changes their mind, there are probably enough votes on the Troutdale City Council to DOUBLE our parks SDC's (System Development Charges) from $3600 to $7565. The higher figure was proposed by Troutdale's Park Advisory Committee. If approved this will be an outrageous, unreasonable increase.
Our existing parks SDC of $3600 is already higher than Gresham ($3185), Forest Grove ($3000), Wilsonville ($2451), Cornelius ($2143), Milwaukie ($2078), Fairview ($1315, Wood Village ($0), and Gladstone ($0).
Fortunately, the city council was unanimous in rejecting a non-residential "index" SDC of $258 per employee for new businesses coming into Troutdale.
