Please join us for a discussion about how the Parks Replacement Bond will help address urgent maintenance needs with no increased tax rates for Portlanders. Get your questions answered and give your input to Parks Commissioner Amanda Fritz.
Over the last century, Portlanders created and have maintained our parks system through a series of capital investments (bonds and levies). However, our park structures and facilities have finite life spans, and require ongoing investment to remain safe and accessible. As Portland’s existing parks bond—approved in 1994—is paid off in 2015, we have the opportunity to address critical park needs without increasing tax rates, by referring a Parks Replacement Bond to voters now.
In North and Northeast Portland, a Replacement Parks Bond would fund major maintenance at St. Johns Community Center, pool renovations at Grant, Matt Dishman Community Center and Peninsula Park, urgent accessibility and restroom repairs at multiple parks, and more.
A recent survey shows that more than 65 percent of Portlanders are supportive of a Replacement Bond would not increase tax rates and would fund some of the most critical repairs to our parks system. Get your questions answered on this unique opportunity at the Parks Replacement Bond Town Hall.
