If the proposal is approved, the Portland Beavers would have a new stadium built in Beaverton for $59 million, 60% of which would be covered by taxpayers.

Mayor Denny Doyle and city staff say they expect the average Beaverton homeowner to see an increase of around $5 a month in utility and property taxes if the deal goes through, money that would pay off city-issued bonds for the project.

“We’re trying to minimize the impact on taxpayers, but as time marches on, the potential is tremendous for what this project can do,” Doyle said. “We have to give it a hard look and make it work.”

Another display of "Gov. Gone Wild" let the taxpayers vote up or down.
If I want to start a business in Beaverton will the taxpayers buy it for me? No one goes to baseball anyway.
