Local Option Vehicle Registration Fee Ballot Measure Information

The last major transportation investments in Kootenai County took place in the early 1970’s. Since that time, prosperity brought about by economic growth and development has placed increased pressure and demands on a transportation system that is rapidly reaching its capacity. This has resulted in the inability of the County’s transportation infrastructure to maintain the safe and efficient movement of both people and goods in a reliable manner. The Local Option Vehicle Registration Fee measure would authorize and increase the vehicle registration fees to establish a regional pooled funding source. The pooled funds would be used to leverage competitive grant funding programs and Federal low interest loans in order to accelerate implementation of twelve (12) regional projects, specifically identified to address traffic congestion, on State and local roads in order to ensure safe and efficient transportation for residents of Kootenai County.

Registration fees collected within Kootenai County by this measure would only be used to support the twelve identified local road and highway related projects (above) within Kootenai County.  The Transportation Project Funding List Multi-Year Program was approved by the KMPO Board on August 13, 2020.
