The Portland Parks & Recreation Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) is comprised of community members, PP&R supporters, neighborhood and underserved community coalition members, and labor partners. The BAC represents a wide variety of interests from stakeholders across the city.
Portland Parks & Recreation’s Budget Process
The City of Portland develops an annual budget. That means, every year, every bureau works with their Commissioner’s Office to develop a Requested Budget that is submitted to the City Budget Office and the Mayor. Then, the Mayor develops his Proposed Budget for the entire City of Portland and works with the City Council, all bureaus and the community to finalize the budget. The City Council formally adopts the budget in June.
For further dates in the budget process, please see the City Budget Office website at portlandoregon.gov/cbo/article/622229.
Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) begins its budget process in October, almost eight months before the budget is adopted.The PP&R budget process goes from about October through January when we submit our Requested Budget to the Budget Office.
Parks uses several points of information to develop our Requested Budget. These include:
With the guidance of each of these points of information, parks staff, the Director and Commissioner of Portland Parks & Recreation develop the Requested Budget for FY 2017/18
