THPRD Board accepting applications for Parks Bond Citizen Oversight Committee
February 04, 2015 - Posted in:
2008 Bond Measure, Bond Oversight Committee
Applications will be accepted through Feb. 23 for six positions on the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District's Parks Bond Citizen Oversight Committee.
The committee's purpose is to ensure the park district meets the objectives of its 2008 voter-approved bond measure and uses the funds as planned. Members serve two-year terms.
The committee has a capacity of 12 positions and meets 3-4 times per year. Members focus on delivery of the overall bond measure obligations, not specific projects or activities. They may be asked to serve on subcommittees assigned to work on projects such as report preparation and research into matters of interest to the committee.
Applications are online, or available in person at THPRD's Administration Office (15707 SW Walker Road, Beaverton, OR 97006). Applicants must live within THPRD boundaries.
The THPRD Board of Directors will review applications and consider making initial appointments at their March 2 meeting.
Due to the complexities of bond implementation and the significant dollar amount associated with the measure, THPRD welcomes applications from professionals in real estate, finance, auditing, public budgeting, banking, general business, and law. However, any district resident is eligible to apply.
The committee, which was formed in 2009, reports on overall progress in meeting objectives and has the opportunity to recommend improvements in efficiency, administration or performance. Members recently completed their fifth annual report.
Parks Bond Measure 34-156 was approved in November 2008 by voters within the Tualatin Hills district. The measure provides funds for land acquisition and dozens of improvement projects focused on parks, trails, natural area preservation, athletic fields, expansions of the Elsie Stuhr Center and the Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center, and replacement and rehabilitation of aging facilities.
Formed in 1955, THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning about 50 square miles and serving 230,000 residents in the greater Beaverton area. The district provides year-round recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Offerings include thousands of widely diverse classes, more than 90 park sites with active recreational amenities, 60 miles of trails, eight swim centers, six recreation centers, and 1,400 acres of nature preserve.
