Portland Budget Meetings on April 3 and 7

From Portland Parks Foundation:

Let City Council Know Your Thoughts on Parks Budget Cuts

Portland’s City Budget Office (CBO) has recommended a draft Portland Parks & Recreation budget for 2018-19 that includes $2.1 million in cuts–nearly half of a total of $5 million in General Fund cuts asked from all bureaus combined.  The proposed reductions, if approved, will deeply impact PP&R’s ability to deliver core programs and services.
As a parks advocate, PPF encourages you and like-minded partners to take action in support of parks:
  • GET INFORMED. Learn more about the city’s Budget Process. Read through the CBO’s PPR&R Budget Review which includes a recommended 4%, or $2.1 million in reductions.

  • SHOW UP.  Over the next two months, City Council will hold a number of meetings to hear community concerns. This is an opportunity to show up in support of parks, and to testify about how these cuts will impact you and your neighborhood. Community Budget Forums are taking place in the next two weeks, which will inform the Mayor as he prepares to release his proposed budget April 30.
April 3, 6:30-8:30pm at David Douglas High School
1001 SE 135th Avenue, 97233
April 17, 6:30-8:30pm at Roosevelt High School
6941 N Central Street, 97203
  • GET OTHERS ENGAGED. City Council needs to know the impacts of the proposed PP&R budget on all of our communities. Share information about the Budget Processwith fellow parks advocates and get them engaged in the process.
Feel free to call PPF at 503-445-0994 or visit them online for more information about the hearings and the budget process.

BDNA Elections Coming in May!

Board elections are happening May 3, 2018 at our regular monthly meeting, 7:00-9:00PM, at the Brentwood-Darlington Community Center.

Do you find it hard to watch the news, wishing there were something you could do to change the world? Are you tired of only knowing your neighbors from tiny profile pictures on a screen?  Want to make a difference with just a few hours a month?  Then join the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association (BDNA)!  

What does a board member do?

As a BDNA board member, you’re asked to attend at least 10 of our 12 monthly meetings, which happen the 1st Thursday of every month from 7:00-9:00PM.  At these meetings, board members discuss and vote on neighborhood issues, appoint committees (as needed), and work on projects pertaining to Brentwood-Darlington.  General members are asked (but not required) to occasionally volunteer at events like neighborhood clean-ups, Movies in the Park, and National Night Out.

What about the elected officers of the board?

The BDNA has four elected officers: Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

  • The Chair is responsible for presiding over meetings, drawing up the agenda, and generally representing the board and neighborhood when necessary. (Average monthly time commitment ~20-30 hours)
  • The Vice Chair assists the Chair and steps in when the Chair is unable to perform their duties. (Average monthly time commitment ~10-15 hours)
  • The Secretary maintains non-financial records and a list of board members, takes minutes at meetings, and answers correspondence. (Average monthly time commitment ~10-15 hours)
  • The Treasurer is responsible for all funds belonging to the BDNA and must maintain records and report on those funds monthly. (Average monthly time commitment ~5-10 hours)

What if I’m unable to make it to meetings, but still want to volunteer?

You don’t have to be a board member to volunteer!  We know that life is busy and many community members are unable to attend monthly meetings.  Do you have a skill you’d like to put to use?  Maybe you’re amazing at social media, have contacts in the community, or speak another language.  Email us with your talent and we’ll put it to work!

Join us on May 3rd and help make YOUR neighborhood a great place to live!
