Happy Valley Residents Brushed Aside With unkept promises by Clackamas County, again

Happy Valley Parks Levy Passes!

During this spring’s primary election, Happy Valley residents voted to pass Measure 3-526, a five-year parks and recreation levy. While the final results are still being verified, approval for the measure is currently close to 72%.

This is exciting news for the community. The funds collected from the levy will be earmarked for park operations and maintenance, as well as recreational programming. While the tax rate will remain the same as what Happy Valley residents were paying to North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD), all of the funds will be spent here, in our community, on services citizens have determined are priorities.

Check out the Master Parks Plan!

On December 19, 2017, City Council unanimously voted to adopt the Master Parks Plan and Ordinance 534 was signed into effect.

Happy Valley Master Parks Plan

The Parks, Recreation & Open Space Plan is based on input received throughout the planning process, from city staff and officials, the Parks Advisory Committee and community members and stakeholders. The plan includes parks planning goals and objectives, a map of potential new parks sites, and a prioritized list of parks facilities and amenities to guide decision makers as they plan for parks over the coming decade.
