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.

INCLUSION SERVICES FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Within the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990, Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) provides accommodations to individuals with disabilities/special needs, so that they may receive an equal opportunity to fully participate in programs offered citywide. How it Works First choose the activity you’d like to do & the PP&R site at which you’d like to do it. Next, register for the class. When registering, let the person know that you will need accommodations in order to participate in the activity. Once registered, contact Inclusion Services at (503) 823-4328. If this is your first accommodation through Inclusion Services, you will need to do a phone intake with a staff member at that number. At the end of the phone intake it will be determined whether an assistant will be needed on the first day of the activity to provide on-site support at the age-appropriate class. Future assistance will be provided based on need. The inclusion staff will work with the instructor on how to support you and your individual needs. A general program may be adapted using auxiliary aids & services, but the basic structure of the program remains the same. Accommodations are made as needed & can be flexible & creative, ensuring the participant engages as independently as possible. If you have questions about Inclusion Services, please call 503-823-4328 V/TTY. A minimum of 10 business days (Monday-Friday) advance notice is required.
