How much can l expect to pay?

Single-family residential properties can expect to pay $4.50 per month the first year (2008/2009). The fee increases by $1.50 per month for each of the next 3 years with a $2.22 per month increase the 5th year ($0.22 is due to a 2% annual inflation increase allowed in accordance with Oregon City Municipal Code 13.30.050).

Multi-family residential units can expect to pay about 70% of the single-family fee. Non-residential bills depend upon the type and size of the development. 5 business groups were established based on similar trip rates per square feet of gross floor area (GFA). In the first year, business charges range from $0.154 to $7.70 per square feet of GFA, depending on the type of use and trip generation. This range would gradually increase to $0.384 to $19.20 per square foot of GFA over the following 4 years.

Unit rates shall be adjusted annually to account for inflation in an amount of no more than 3%.
