North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District recruits for board volunteer

Citizens interested in serving on the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD) Advisory Board are encouraged to apply for one position on the board that meets monthly. The application deadline for the recruitment is Thursday, May 17.

Clackamas County Commissioners will give final approval to the appointments. All citizens are welcome to apply.

The District Advisory Board (DAB) makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners regarding NCPRD’s designs, plans, development and operation of parks in the district. The DAB meets every second Wednesday of the month at 4 p.m. at the North Clackamas Aquatic Park.

Desired skills include an ability to think globally and to be a part of public process, a capacity to problem-solve and to work constructively within a group setting. The parks district stretches from the Multnomah County line on the north to the Willamette River on the west, the Clackamas River on the south and to the eastern Happy Valley border.

Applications may be completed and submitted online via the Clackamas County website at www.clackamas.us/miscapp/application.jsp. pamelagir@co.clackamas.or.us.

For information about the parks district or the DAB, call Robin Bruce at 503-742-4348 or email robinbru@clackamas.us.
