City Budget Update by Jennifer Yocom, Community Relations Manager, Portland Parks & Recreation As you may know, the City of Portland is facing a $25 million deficit for fiscal year 2013-14. Several factors have impacted this deficit including the Multnomah County Library District, the recent Department of Justice settlement, and budget notes from the FY 2012-13 Possible Adopted Budget. With that, 10% reduction the Mayor and City Council FY 2013-14 have asked all City bureaus, including Parks, to develop a budget based on 90% of their current budget (the Current Appropriation Level). That means Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) faces up to a 10% cut in programs and services. While we don’t know what PP&R’s final budget will be at this point, it is possible that certain programs will be changed, reduced or eliminated, or fees will increase to help cover costs. Follow the process at parks/budget, and find out more about community budget forums where you can testify at www. The City’s final budget should be adopted in June and implemented on July 1, 2013, the first day of the new fiscal year. The work of PP&R—its parks, natural areas, community centers, and programming—daily and directly affect the lives of Portland residents. Follow what’s happening and consider attending and testifying at public meetings about the issues important to you.

Non-residents who wish to register for PP&R activities may choose one of these options: • pay the additional 30% non-resident fee. • purchase resident status as either an individual or family for a period of three, six, nine, or twelve months from the date of purchase. Inquire about this option at time of registration. Non-resident passes are not refundable. Passes are activated at the date of purchase.

Note: As part of the FY 2013-14 budget PP&R will be updating its non-resident fee policy to better ensure that non-residents are paying fees equivalent to what City of Portland residents are paying through fees and taxes. The specific changes are not known at the time of this printing. Any changes to non-resident fees are expected to become effective for customers that register after June 30, 2013.
