Transportation Benefit District
The Battle Ground Transportation Benefit District (TBD) was established in 2014 as a means to provide adequate levels of funding for the purpose of ongoing transportation improvements that preserve, maintain, and as appropriate, construct or reconstruct the transportation infrastructure of the City.  The district area includes the entire corporate limits of the City of Battle Ground as its boundary.

Funding
Effective July 1, 2015, residents who live within Battle Ground city limits will be assessed a $20 TBD (Transportation Benefit District) fee when renewing or purchasing vehicle tabs. The revenue created will be used for the sole purpose of transportation improvements such as the maintenance, preservation and construction/reconstruction of roadways within the Battle Ground city limits. 
                    
View the Washington State Department of Licensing Transportation Benefit District  page for additional information on TBDs including a list of vehicles subject to the fee and a list of exempt vehicles.

Projects
Projects funded by the TBD are within the City's corporate limits and are identified as preservation and maintenance, in the City's Comprehensive Transportation Plan, or in the 6-Year Transportation Improvement Program.
       

2017 TBD Funded Projects
This year’s TBD funded projects include crack, slurry and chip sealing of streets in the northwest quadrant of the city, extensive pothole repair, and the mill and fill paving process on the north section of the South Parkway Improvement Project.

The crack, slurry and chip sealing processes protect streets from damaging water intrusion that would otherwise lead to potholes and eventual failure of the roadway.  Slurry sealing, the application of an oil mixture from curb to curb on the entire street, will take place in mid-August.  The chip sealing project, estimated to take place in September, is similar to a slurry seal but adds rock to create greater structural integrity.

See maps of the crack, slurry and chip sealing projects.  For updates on project timelines, follow the city's Facebook page.

The city will leverage approximately $8,800 of TBD funds to receive a $50,000 grant specifically for pothole repair.  The state’s Transportation Improvement Board offered the grants to cities in response to the increased number of potholes created by last winter’s weather conditions. 

In addition, the city leveraged $65,000 of TBD revenue as a required match to obtain a much larger $366,000 grant that will pay for the mill and fill process and the necessary ADA upgrades on South Parkway between Rasmussen and Main Street.  With the mill and fill process, the existing roadway will be milled away, excavated where needed, and a new layer of asphalt laid.
