District Advisory Board
The District Advisory Board (DAB) is an appointed board with nine members serving 4-year terms. Six of the DAB’s nine members are citizen volunteers recruited through advertisement, whereas three members are appointed designees from District partner organizations. NCPRD partners with two cities through Cooperative Intergovernmental Agreements: the City of Milwaukie and the City of Happy Valley. The third appointed designee is appointed by the Milwaukie Center’s Community Advisory Board.
The DAB makes recommendations to the District’s governing board, the Board of Clackamas County Commissioners, on the design, planning and development of parks and the provision of recreational programs in the district. Board members are important in representing citizens’ voices in NCPRD decisions and policies.
Regular meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month beginning at 5:00 p.m. at the North Clackamas Aquatic Park, located at 7300 SE Harmony Road, Milwaukie, OR 97222. Meeting agendas are posted 5-7 days in advance of the meeting. A hard copy is posted in the lobby of the North Clackamas Aquatic Park for viewing as soon as it is released online. If you’d like direct notification of these meetings via email, you can request to be added to our Public Meetings Distribution List by emailing email@example.com.
District Advisory Board Meetings – Resuming July 2019
On April 11, 2017 the Board of County Commissioners, acting as the Governing Board of North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD Board of Directors), suspended regular monthly meetings of the District Advisory Board indefinitely due to the withdrawal of the City of Happy Valley. In December 2018, the Clackamas County Circuit Court ruled that the City had not followed the appropriate Oregon statue to withdraw and that the City was still within the District’s boundaries. At the May 16, 2019 meeting of the NCPRD Board of Directors, the Board directed staff to restart regular monthly meetings of the District Advisory Board in order to discuss and make recommendations to revise its composition through its bylaws. The Board has requested these changes in representation will ultimately reflect the diversity of the District’s residents more accurately.
