Volunteers on the district’s Levy Task Force have begun meeting to review the district’s budget, funding gaps, and to look at options for a potential operating levy. Topics being discussed by the group include major changes that would be required without additional funding such as: reducing cleaning of restrooms, bi-weekly or monthly garbage collection at many sites, and elimination of after school programs, that would be likely if funding levels are not stabilized. The levy task force is expected to bring a recommendation to the board in November. Ultimately, it will be up to the board to decide to forward the operating levy to the voters, which could happen as early as May 2024.
Raleigh Park Update:
Construction of a soft-surface trail at Raleigh Park is underway. Portions of the park are temporarily closed. Stream enhancement activities are delayed and will start in summer.
Climate Action Plan:
Work continues on the district’s Climate Action Plan with staff teams working to finalizing objectives for each of the focus areas. Look for more info soon as the planning process continues.
Future Park at SW Pointer Rd in West Slope Area:
Share your input in a new survey to help name the future park. The names on the survey were selected through an intentional engagement effort with community partners to advance equity and honor our diverse community identities and experiences. The survey will be open through November 20 on the district’s website.
