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 funding our valuable parks. 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 Board of County Commissioners approved the formation of the Lane County Parks Funding Task Force in July 2019. The Task Force members include Lane County residents from each region of the county, as well as selected stakeholders who have a passion for Lane County Parks. The Task Force will research and recommend funding options that will ensure long-term financial stability for Lane County Parks.  At the conclusion of their work, their recommendations will be forwarded to the Commissioners for their sincere and thoughtful consideration and possible implementation.

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