Selected for new two-year terms were Wink Brooks, Anthony Mills, Kevin O’Donnell, Stephen Pearson and Jack Platten.
The oversight committee consists of 10 members whose purpose is to ensure the park district meets the objectives of the 2008 bond measure and uses the funds as planned. Committee members focus on delivery of overall bond measure obligations, not specific projects or activities. All members live within THPRD boundaries.
The committee reports annually on overall progress in meeting objectives. Members have the opportunity to recommend improvements in efficiency, administration or performance.
Parks Bond Measure 34-156 was approved in November 2008 by voters within THPRD boundaries. The measure provided funds for land acquisition and dozens of improvement projects focused on parks, trails, natural areas, athletic fields, and facilities.
THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning about 50 square miles and serving about 240,000 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, more than 90 park sites with active recreational amenities, 60 miles of trails, eight swim centers, six recreation centers, and 1,400 acres of natural areas.
