The budget for the North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD) is prepared by staff on an annual basis. It is reviewed by the District Advisory Board and then forwarded to the budget committee (which consists of the Board of County Commissioners and an equal number of citizen members) for approval. After approval by the budget committee, the document is forwarded for adoption to the Board of County Commissioners, who serve as the District Board of Directors.
The 2011-2012 NCPRD budget totals about $18 million. The District’s tax rate is 54 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation. The homeowner of a house with an assessed value of $238,800 (market value $300,000) would pay about $128.52 in property taxes per year.
Property taxes, fees, grants and other miscellaneous revenues are used to maintain more than 60 park properties, provide programming and recreation services and operate the North Clackamas Aquatic Park and Milwaukie Center.
