Portland, Ore., residents will be asked to vote on whether to pay higher taxes for arts education in the trendy city.

The city ballot measure would allow a $35 annual tax to go toward the hiring of art and music teachers in public elementary schools.

It is one of four measures Portland residents will consider, including a $482 million capital bond for the Portland school district.

The arts measure is estimated to raise $12 million each year.
