1% of $2B is…

Lenny passed along this press release about tree planting (PDF, 33K) in conjunction with the I-5 Delta Park project and notes:

The I-5 TF recommended a 1% for Enhancement fund for any I-5 projects…

This is the first one to be implemented with $ from the Delta/Lombard project.

Is the Enhancement fund alive and well in the deliberations of the CRC? 1% of $2Billion is real money. It is above and beyond “mitigation” funds, and was inspired by the I-405 funds in NW/Hillside/NINA.

1% x $2B = $20M
1% x $6B = $60M

Hmmm…

more details…

We’re at the tail end of the public input process on this project. If you have an opinion, now is the time to voice it.

On Projects and CDs

A few weeks ago, we noted that the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the I-5 Delta Park project was due out and there was an option to order it on CD-ROM. Well, we have not received our CD yet (we assume it’s “in the mail”), but we did get an e-mail that the EA is available online. The web site also lists the public hearing date (Jan 24), and we would encourage folks to mark their calendars.

The CD we DID get this week is the draft Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for the Port of Portland. The Port is in fact a major transportation provider in our region, but one that goes unnoticed by many people. We would encourge people to pay a little bit of attention to where they are putting their capital dollars. The TIP draft is also available online (PDF, 9M). That public hearing will be at 9am on January 11th during the regular Port Commission meeting.

By the way, no mention of Peak Oil in the assumption section of the TIP.
