THPRD News: Levy | Summer Registration | News & Updates | May Events

THPRD Local Option Levy (Measure 34-337) – This May, voters will have the opportunity to vote on a NEW local option levy to fund THPRD operations. If approved by voters, the levy would be for $0.50 per $1,000 assessed value for five years. The levy would increase taxes on the average home in the district by $152.12 per year or $12.68 per month.

The levy would also maintain existing service levels, improve safety and maintenance in parks, natural areas and trails and fund a new registration system. Items the levy would fund include ensuring weekly garbage collection at parks, ensuring public restrooms stay open and cleaned, preserve up to 300 positions (50 full-time and 250 part-time), fund afterschool and preschool programs, and maintain facility hours for the public at recreation centers. Learn more about the levy on our website.

 

Waterhouse Trail crossings: THPRD is improving trail accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists across the regional trail system by partnering with Washington County’s Urban Road Maintenance District. Washington County is leading the project’s design and construction and THPRD is dedicating $125,000 toward the effort. The construction for these crossings is currently expected to begin in mid to late 2024.

 

Westside Trail: THPRD is launching the planning and development of new sections of the Westside Trail that will connect to the future Westside Trail bridge crossing over Highway 26.

 

Mountain View Champions Park sport court: THPRD continues to move toward construction of the new multi-purpose sport court at Mountain View Champions Park. Construction is anticipated to begin in late spring 2024 and expected to be finished in fall 2024.
