PP&R Budget - Fiscal Year 2015-16

Please join us on January 7 for a public dialogue about PP&R's FY 2015-16 budget!

This site contains information on the Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) budget process for Fiscal Year 2015-2016. We will be updating it over the next several weeks with frequently asked questions and answers, the Budget Advisory Committee roster, messages from PP&R Director Mike Abbaté, budget guidance documents, and the timeline for the budget process. Information on last year's budget process (FY 2014-15) is also available.

We will continue to provide updates throughout the budget process. Thank you for visiting the site.
