OMBC Endorses Nature For All
We have exciting news to share: we have moved to formally endorse the Nature for All campaign and hit the ground running. The campaign seeks to renew Metro’s bond that ensures birds, fish, friends and neighbors alike have access to clean air, clean water, and beautiful parks from the Sandy River to Beaver Creek.
After a year long community engagement and comprehensive stakeholder process Metro referred one of the most collaborative and equitably driven measures ever put before Oregon voters and the Oregon Mountain Biking Coalition is thrilled to be a partner on the ground floor. We will be working alongside a growing coalition of conservation groups, social justice and community organizations, elected leaders, and individuals representing working families, health professionals, business owners, faith groups, and more.
Without raising taxes, this measure will:
Preserve our region’s water quality—from the Willamette, Clackamas, and Tualatin rivers, to important headwaters, and local streams and wetlands;
Fund the construction dozens of miles of new mountain bike trails across Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties;
Protect forests, open spaces, and areas at risk from development that are important for wildlife habitat, recreation, and needed to safeguard our air and water;
Ensure all kids—regardless of zip code or income—have great places to play by improving access and facilities at regional parks and in communities across the Metro region to better serve our growing, diverse populations.
