THPRD budget approved for 2016-17
A $114.1 million budget for the 2016-17 fiscal year was approved by the Budget Committee and is expected to be adopted by the board of directors on June 20.
On Monday, THPRD's Budget Committee unanimously approved the staff's proposed budget for the 2016-17 fiscal year.
The $114.1 million budget -- an 11.2% increase over the current-year budget -- is expected to be adopted by the board of directors at their June 20 meeting. If approved, implementation begins July 1.
"I want to thank all of our staff who have worked hard to get this high-quality budget document produced on schedule despite a number of challenges," said Doug Menke, general manager. "The fact that the budget has moved through the process so smoothly attests to our staff's preparation and attention to detail. We look forward to formal adoption in June."
The $114.1 million figure represents THPRD's total budget for the 16-17 fiscal year, including the general fund (operating plus capital), projects funded by system development charges, and bond capital projects.
City committee selects THPRD for "vision champion" award
The City of Beaverton’s Visioning Advisory Committee (VAC) has honored THPRD with a “Vision Champion” award based on the park district’s 2015 activities in support of the Beaverton Community Vision.
The City of Beaverton’s Visioning Advisory Committee (VAC) has honored the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District with a “Vision Champion” award based on the park district’s 2015 activities in support of the Beaverton Community Vision.
Jaann Koeber-Hoisington, VAC chair, said THPRD’s work impressed the committee in a variety of ways:
“First, THPRD has been doing some tremendous outreach work with diverse populations to make facilities and programs available and welcoming to all.
“They have also provided important social support, including using their facilities as cooling shelters during last summer’s heat wave and delivering meals to disadvantaged youth with their Rec Mobile.
“THPRD has also done a great job extending our trails network, including new connections on the Westside Trail.
“Finally, THPRD has done a lot to make sure everyone has a chance to stay fit, exemplified by the new fit station at the Elsie Stuhr Center, Adaptive Recreation program, and inclusive play projects being developed.”
“The visioning plan dovetails beautifully with our mission, which is to continually improve quality of life for Beaverton-area residents,” said Jerry Jones, THPRD board member (and a founding member of the VAC). “We’re proud to support the city in its efforts and honored to receive this recognition.”
Award recipients can be nominated by anyone affiliated with the city’s visioning process. They are selected by the VAC based on their contributions to vision implementation.
“Our Vision Champion Awards are just one small way we can thank the people and institutions that make a difference and help us keep and exceed our promises to the community,” Hoisington said.
The Beaverton Downtown Association was also honored with a Vision Champion award for 2015.
