Transportation Benefit District


Transportation Benefit District History

The Longview Transportation Benefit District (TBD) was established on December 15, 2016 by Ordinance No. 3334, and a $20 motor vehicle license renewal fee was adopted on February 9, 2017.

 2018 – 2022

The City has completed four of our highest prioritized capital projects including:

  • 15th Avenue Resurfacing, 
  • Nichols Blvd Resurfacing, 
  • Oregon Way Resurfacing, 
  • California Way Resurfacing.

 In 2022 we used the TBD funds to hire an additional 3-person street maintenance crew. This crew is tasked with: Replacing concrete street panels, repairing asphalt streets, chip sealing streets, crack sealing, and fixing potholes. Productivity among these tasks is up 162%.

 On January 12, 2023 the motor vehicle license renewal fee was increased to $40. With these additional funds we are planning to systematically and strategically tackle our next priority projects.

The next five projects on the priority list are:

  • Oregon Way, Beech to Industrial Way; 
  • Glenwood, Pacific to Columbia Heights; 
  • Columbia Heights, Cascade to Fishers Lane
  • NW Nichols, Louisiana to Ocean Beach Highway
  • NE Nichols, Louisiana to Ocean Beach Highway
