Do you love parks and natural areas? Do you want to support conservation and racial equity by helping Metro fulfill its promises to the people of greater Portland? Metro is looking for individuals who are deeply committed to advancing racial equity and have experience in areas such as finance, conservation, tribal sovereignty, and other topics to serve on an independent community advisory committee to provide oversight of capital investments in parks and nature.

The committee will keep Metro accountable and transparent in its use of capital funds from the $475 million 2019 parks and nature bond and the parks and natural areas levy, which raises about $16 million a year. Voters overwhelmingly approved both measures. The committee will provide transparent oversight of the 2019 bond measure by reviewing implementation and confirming that it is in alignment with the voter approved bond goals and purpose to ensure that taxpayer funds are used responsibly.
