Vote YES on Measure 26-221
This May, we can vote YES for the Oregon Historical Society and provide continued funding for educational and cultural preservation programs. This levy renewal will keep taxes at the same rate, and ensure Multnomah County residents continue to have free access to the museum.
EDUCATION AND PRESERVATION
The Oregon Historical Society’s museum and library help Oregonians discover the people, places, and events that have shaped our home — at no cost to Multnomah County residents. OHS preserves access to our history for the next generation.
SAME TAX RATE
Measure 26-221 renews the Oregon Historical Society levy. The tax rate would be the same it is today—$0.05 per $1,000 of assessed value, or approximately $10 a year for a typical household with an assessed value of $200,000.
An independent citizen oversight committee ensures levy funds are used appropriately, reviews audits of levy spending, and reports annually to the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners.
