In November 2010, voters in the City of Tigard passed a $17 million bond to
fund parks acquisition and development. The bond, Measure 34-181, did not fund
park maintenance, however, and the City of Tigard now needs to identify further
funding mechanisms to support ongoing park maintenance.
Many other cities in Oregon are also looking for ways to fund park
maintenance, as well as looking for other sources of revenue in general, whether to
balance the general budget or fund a specific area, such as public safety. In fact,
the 2014 League of Oregon Cities conference included a session titled “Creative
Revenue Streams for Municipalities.”
