THPRD Budget Update

The THPRD Board of Directors adopted next year’s budget in June. Like many agencies, THPRD continues to experience significant funding shortfalls. Looking ahead, the district will need to find a way to fill a projected $16 million-dollar funding gap in the next couple of years. Since March, the Board has been discussing funding options, including an operating levy, used by other agencies like the Beaverton School District, which THPRD has utilized in the past. THPRD will be forming a community-led group to explore the possibility of an operating levy for voter consideration sometime in 2024.
