Budget Process

  • BAC Meetings and Materials

General Budget Process Overview

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 City Council, all bureaus and the community to finalize the budget. City Council formally adopts the budget in June.

Portland Parks & Recreation begins its budget process in October, eight months before the budget is adopted. The Parks budget process goes from October through February when we submit our Requested Budget to the City Budget Office. Then, a process led by City Council begins.  

Parks uses several points of information to develop our Requested Budget. These include:

  • Mayoral Guidance
  • Commissioner input
  • Staff input from managers, technicians, line, and program staff
  • Budget Advisory Committee – the full Parks Board and invited labor representatives, community members and representatives from culturally-specific community-based organizations.

A Sustainable Future

Update for December 26, 2019

Commissioner Nick Fish and Director Adena Long are committed to leading PP&R in a more financially sustainable direction – for the long term. As part of that commitment, they led a Council Work Session to get feedback about how best to align community expectations with funding levels. Read more.
