Parks Funding Task Force

Lane County Parks is beginning the new process to fulfill the goals of the recently adopted Master Plan by exploring the challenges and opportunities associated with Parks funding. Lane County Parks does not receive funding from property taxes and currently relies primarily on the fees that visitors pay for parking passes, campsites or other reservations.


The Lane County Parks Funding Task Force will research and recommend dedicated funding options that will ensure long-term financial stability for Lane County Parks.  These recommendations will be forwarded to the commissioners for their sincere and thoughtful consideration and possible implementation. Task Force members will include representatives from recreation and environmental groups, as well as Lane County residents.


The Task Force will meet a minimum of eight (8) times between January 2020 and June 2021 to review and evaluate funding priorities and alternatives, community survey results, and formulate recommendations.
