Milwaukie City Council Approves 1% Construction Excise Tax

The city of Milwaukie in Clackamas County has approved a 1% excise tax on new residential, commercial, and industrial development. The funds raised by the tax will go toward building affordable housing units, as well as assisting community development programs.

The Milwaukie City Council is also set to consider a new resolution to extend the housing state of emergency. They originally declared the emergency in April 2016, and then voted on a six month extension in April 2017. That extension is now expired, but according to City Manager Ann Ober the 90-day notice for no-cause evictions remains in effect. The City Council will likely extend the housing emergency until April 2018, unless the vacancy rises above 4% before that date. Read more.
