About The Project

Funding the Project

The projected facility cost is between $56.9 and $60.7 million. Four primary funding mechanisms for debt service are a two percent increase to the Transient Lodging Tax; expanding our Airport Car Rental Tax to apply citywide; a $2.40/ month increase to the Park Utility Fee; and early repayment of a U.S. Cellular Community Park construction bond.

An increase to the Transient Lodging Tax requires voter approval in May 2020.

Why the Campaign?

This website and the action committee behind it are seeking to promote awareness within the community of the project, the need for this facility, and the profound impacts it will have on the lives of many Medford residents. We advocate for a "YES" vote on Ballot Measures 187 & 188.
