Conversation with the Director - Citywide Parks Team - 1/15/09

Citywide Parks Team Meeting Thursday, January 15, 2009 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Portland Building Forest Park Conference Room (13th Floor) 1120 SW 5th Ave

Topic:  A Conversation with the Director Guest:  Zari Santner, Director of PP&R

Zari will talk about city priorities as expressed by Commissioner Fish and Mayor Adams, the PP&R strategic plan, the current budget process, plus general park updates -- an "annual state of the bureau" sort of thing.  There will be plenty of time for Q&A, too.

NOTE: It is important that you arrive between 6:45 and 7:10 pm. Because the doors automatically lock at 6 pm, a Park employee must be at the 5th Ave entrance to let participants in. Once that individual leaves to join the meeting (at 7:10 pm), you may not be able to enter the building.

The Portland Citywide Parks Team is an ad hoc citizens group, formed in February 2005.  Monthly meetings provide a forum for information-sharing and an exchange of ideas -- and for respectful discourse on park issues and policies.  There are also opportunities to network with others who are working and volunteering to make Portland's parks even better than they are today.  It's citizen-initiated, citizen-led, citizen-owned, and intended for all Portlanders who care about getting things done in and for parks in Portland.

The Citywide Parks Team meetings are open to anyone.  The group doesn't have designated members or a formal committee structure. Interested individuals are encouraged to drop in whenever they can. It's a self-selected, ever-changing group that meets monthly, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm on the third Thursday, in the Forest Park Conference Room at the Portland Building.  Attendance has ranges from 4 to 40+ people, depending on the topic.
