Nancy Wells of Cedar Mill has been appointed to a committee that oversees implementation of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District's 2008 voter-approved bond measure.
Wells will serve a two-year term on the Parks Bond Citizen Oversight Committee. The THPRD Board of Directors made the appointment at their regular monthly meeting on Aug. 10.
A certified auditor by profession, she serves on the board of directors of the Willamette Valley ISACA chapter of information technology security, audit and compliance professionals.
Her community service in recent years has included stints with the Cedar Mill Parent Teacher Club, Cub Scouts, youth soccer and other activities.
The oversight committee consists of 12 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.
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.
Celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2015, THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning about 50 square miles and serving 230,000 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.
