Hello Neighborhood Association and Community Leaders,
Portland Parks and Recreation is facing the possibility of having another cut to its budget this time that of 6%. This may have significant ramifications to the neighborhoods that you represent in terms of lost services and lost care to existing sites.
The workers of Portland Parks and Recreation, cordially wish to invite you to come to our community forum that we are holding. Presentations will be made in regards to who performs the work, why it matters who performs the work, what taking this work away will mean to the community.
Our effort is seeking to be as inclusive as possible, to that end we have formed a new coalition called Progress Forward NWbecause we are seeking solutions that progressively build a better tomorrow for PP&R and the community it serves.
In addition, we are open to hearing from the neighborhood associations, what projects or initiatives they are working on and what opportunities there may be to support your efforts as well. This may prove to be a great event to network different plans for the greater Portland area.
So please join us this Saturday, November 6 from 1-3 P.M. The site is 1125 SE Madison, Portland Oregon 97214. Food will be catered in by Madison’s Bar and Grill. There will be a Q&A session in which you will be able to ask questions of the presenters.
For more information, please contact me.
Thanks for your time,
Progress Forward NW/ Laborers Local 483
