More resources needed to keep pace with record-setting growth
Voters will see a ballot measure this fall to increase the registration fees paid by most vehicle owners by $18 annually -- about a nickel a day. If approved, the Ada County Highway District will use the estimated $7.5 million in new revenue to:
- Add more 'smart signal' technology and build more turn lanes at intersections to improve the flow of traffic;
- Start more mobility projects -- intersection rebuilds, road section improvements -- the big jobs that provide safer and smoother travel for all users;
- Ensure that development pays its way by providing the legally required, tax dollar match to collect 100 percent of available impact fees;
- Build new sidewalks, bike lanes and Safe Routes to School, increasing mobility and safety for everybody.
We need your support
Please help Citizens for Better Transportation to create a safer and more efficient local transportation system. The revenue from an expanded Ada County Vehicle Registration Fee will allow the Ada County Highway District to make it easier for everyone to get around.
