#TualatinHillsPark&RecreationDistrict

 

Local Option Levy Update: The Board of Directors unanimously approved forwarding a local option levy to district voters for the May 2024 election. They are proposing a five-year levy of $0.50 per $1,000 in assessed value. If approved, the levy would increase taxes on the average home in the district by about $152.12 per year, or $12.68 per month. The proposed levy will:

  • Ensure weekly garbage collection at parks. Without a levy, service would be reduced to monthly or twice a month at some parks.
  • Ensure public restrooms stay open and clean. Without a levy several outdoor public restrooms will be closed, and others would experience reduced cleaning service from multiple times a week to once a week or less.
  • Ensure afterschool and preschool programming continues. Without levy support, THPRD’s afterschool programs and preschool programs will end.
  • Maintain existing maintenance service and recreation programming levels. Funding for the levy will fund nearly 50 full-time positions and 200 part-time positions that perform park, trail, and natural area maintenance and lead recreation classes and programs such as art, sports, and aquatics.
  • Keep pools and splash pads open. Without a levy, the district will have to close some facilities, including three swimming pools and two splash pads.

 

SAVE the DATE for Spring Registration: Registration for spring programs, classes, and activities begins Saturday, February 24, at 8 am for in-district residents. Out-of-district registration starts on Feb. 26.
