Strategic Partnership

North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District and North Clackamas School District

In February 2017, North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District and North Clackamas School District announced a Strategic Partnership that would provide new amenities and community spaces to meet the needs of the residents across both districts. This original partnership included the exchange of NCPRD-owned Hood View Park in Happy Valley for NCSD’s Concord Elementary School building in Oak Grove, Lake Road Administration Building in Milwaukie, and cash for the balance of Hood View Park.

Following a period of due-diligence and inspection of the properties, the Parks District opted not to acquire the School District’s former Lake Road administration building due to limited potential for facility use. In place of the Lake Road building, acquisition of Wichita Elementary School and Clackamas Elementary School were negotiated into the agreement (along with previously agreed upon Concord Elementary School).

Residents and community groups are invited to participate in person at public Board meetings, and provide comments via email and by phone. Learn more about the Strategic Partnership and how you can get involved by clicking the tabs below.

 

The amended Strategic Partnership agreement is moving forward with the following terms:

  • School District buys Hood View Park for $18.7M
  • Parks District buys Concord Elementary School for $1.59M
  • Parks District buys Clackamas Elementary School for $1.7M
  • Parks District buys Wichita Elementary School for $1.37M
  • Parks District receives approximately $14 M in cash equivalents

The partnership between the Parks District and the School District gives both entities needed resources to better serve our communities. Benefits of the partnership include:

  • Provides School District with the needed sports fields for the planned development of the new high school, converted from Rock Creek Middle School
  • Hood View Park stays in the community to provide students with athletic fields, and will continue to serve as a venue for sports programming and league rentals during non-school use times
  • Decentralizes the Park District’s capital currently held in Hood View Park and frees up annual revenue to allow for more investment in underserved areas throughout the District
  • Opportunity for Concord Elementary School, Wichita Elementary School and Clackamas Elementary School to be revitalized and repurposed for public uses

North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District and and North Clackamas School District are dedicated to a thorough, inclusive and transparent public engagement process for the development of new parks and facilities. Residents and community groups are invited to provide input on the Strategic Partnership by attending the following public meetings, or by submitting comments to info@ncprd.com or (503) 742-4348.
