Holly Thompson has submitted a letter of resignation from the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District Board of Directors. Thompson, a member of the board since July 2017, cited personal reasons for her decision.
The board will accept the resignation at their Aug. 7 meeting, which begins at 6 pm. The board will also discuss options for appointing a replacement to fill the vacancy. They may consider making their appointment as early as that same Aug. 7 meeting.
The appointee will serve until June 30, 2019. Prior to that, in May 2019, a public election will be held to determine who will serve the remainder of the open seat’s term, which is set to expire June 30, 2021. The board completed a similar appointment process this spring to fill a vacant director position with Wendy Kroger, a longtime THPRD volunteer. The board will determine what portion, if any, of this recent process will be utilized to make the present appointment.
The other members of the THPRD Board besides Kroger are Ali Kavianian (president through June 2019), Felicita Monteblanco and John Griffiths.
Formed in 1955, THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning 50 square miles and serving about 250,000 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, 95 park sites with active recreational amenities, nearly 70 miles of trails, eight swim centers, six recreation centers, and about 1,500 acres of natural areas.
