After 29 years with Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), and eight as Director, Zari Santner announced her retirement today.
Zari leaves a rich legacy for future generations of Oregonians - from her efforts to fully integrate recreation programs into other areas of the organization to her commitment to quality design, from diversifying the funding base for parks to protecting and managing our natural areas.
Under Zari's leadership, PP&R had significant achievements:
We'll be conducting a national search to fill Zari's position and continue her legacy of excellence. Nick told the Oregonian's Brad Schmidt this morning, "The truth is, I can't replace Zari Santner. She's left a beautiful legacy for us to build on."
Thank you, Zari, for your service to our city.
