This advisory committee represents a diversity of expertise, skills, and viewpoints. As such, committee members are expected to listen carefully and consider the range of local and citywide needs and goals. Committee recommendations should represent a broad base of collective wisdom about what will best serve our city and the local neighborhood.
The committee will work to reach full agreement on guidance and recommendations, using a consensus process that respects the perspectives and contributions of all members. Whenever possible, the group will forward recommendations that are supported by the full group. If full agreement is not possible, the committee will use a three-quarters majority vote to finalize recommendations. In the case of a majority vote, minority reports will be accepted and submitted along with the PAC recommendation.
The suggestions, advice, and recommendations of the PAC will be provided to the project staff and the Director of Portland Parks & Recreation for consideration. Final decisions will be made by the PP&R Director.
